M2fx, the inventors and producers of the Miniflex range of fibre cables, have announced a partnership with Middle East Fiber Cable Manufacturing (MEFC), to support its growth in the Middle East.
 
MEFC will provide customers in the region with m2fx’s full product range. It has already supplied more than 500 FTTP installations of Miniflex cable for use in major projects across the region, including external and internal deployments for the Saudi Arabian carrier company Mobily.
 
MEFC is a Saudi-Japanese partnership located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It has established itself as the largest fibre cable manufacturer in the region with a production capacity of more than 30,000km of cable. With an estimated 40 per cent of the Saudi local market share and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, MEFC is well positioned to be the supplier of choice for most local telecom and industrial projects. It has entered the FTTH market by supplying micro cables, pre-connected cables, fibre optics accessories, air-blown cables and offering end to end solutions.
 
'Quality is at the heart of everything we do and as we expand we are looking for partners that deliver innovative products that meet our customers’ demanding needs,' said Saeed Alghamdi, general manager at MEFC. 'M2fx has designed products that meet the specific requirements of our region, making it the natural choice for our customers as they look to increase fibre deployments across the Middle East. With the market growing fast, we see Miniflex becoming a key part of our range.'
