OFS is part of Furukawa Electric Company (FEC), a multi-billion dollar corporation that has been in operation since 1884. Since it achieved a world first in finding practical application for optical fiber cables in 1974, the Furukawa Electric Group has offered an extensive lineup of products as one of the world’s leading optical fiber manufacturers.

Our technological heritage includes not only the first commercial production of optical fibers, but also the first to market offerings for many of the fiber optic products that meet today’s industry standards. This legacy includes the first application specific fiber, the first optical connectors, the first ribbon cables, the first attenuators, the first hard clad silica fibers and dozens of additional breakthroughs that enabled the fiber optics revolution.  As broadband networks are being disseminated on a global basis, FEC and OFS together have utilized leading-edge telecommunication technologies to the fullest to contribute to the development of next-generation communication networks.

Supporting all these initiatives is OFS Laboratories (OFS Labs). Bred from the technological heritage of Bell Labs and Furukawa Electric Company, OFS Labs delivers best in class research and development to maintain our cutting-edge leadership and to give value to our customers and shareholders.
