Rebrand for Optimal Cable Services

AFL has rebranded Optimal Cable Services, a manufacturer of fibre optic cable and provider of connectivity products based in Melbourne, Australia, after it acquired the company in February.

Since 1986, AFL has acquired more than 30 companies worldwide while continuing to operate in Melbourne and provide quality products to growing markets in the south Pacific area.

'As a leader in the North American market, we again have an opportunity to strengthen and broaden our customer relationships abroad - this time in the South Pacific,' said Aungwin Tin, general manager for AFL Australia. 'We believe Optimal is fully capable of representing AFL’s customer-focused culture and we look forward to working with them to achieve great results.'

Tin added: 'By combining our strengths in telecommunications, mining and general distribution markets, customers have the added benefit of a knowledgeable global leader committed to our customers first.'

Optimal will continue to offer its existing product portfolio, which includes assorted fibre optic cabling, testing and cleaning equipment, media converters and connectivity products.
