SPARTANBURG, S.C., Feb. 12, 2013 — AFL has acquired fiber optic cable manufacturer Optimal Cable Services of Melbourne, Australia. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Optimal will join the AFL portfolio to expand the company’s global offering of solutions to the telecommunications, mining and general distribution markets. The company will continue to operate in its existing Melbourne facility, where it manufactures uni-tube, loose tube and all-dielectric self-supporting cables, composites, cords and ancillary products.

“Adding Optimal greatly extends our manufacturing capabilities in the South Pacific,” said Kurt Dallas, vice president and general manager of global cable systems for AFL. The company’s fiber optic cable, transmission and substation products are offered in more than 120 countries.
