FONS Corp. has acquired assets from Spoval Fiber Optics, Inc.

FONS representatives say the acquisition will ensure that Spoval customers will have access to all existing products, as well as a broad range of products available under the FONS' brand name.

"There is remarkable similarity between Spoval and FONS in terms of the companies' philosophy and focus on customer relationships and service excellence," says Mike Noonan, president of FONS.
