Startup connector maker acquires Thomas & Betts product line

Oct. 10, 2001
October 10, 2001 Connectors for Networking, headed by three former T&B employees, purchases the OMNI family of twisted-pair connecting hardware.

Connector manufacturer startup Connectors for Networking of Tustin, CA has purchased the OMNI connectivity product line from cable management manufacturer Thomas & Betts of Memphis, TN.

CFN, which is led by three former Thomas & Betts employees, purchased all the molds and the OMNI �identity.� Steve Reed, CFN�s director of sales and marketing, says the OMNI products are its sole manufacturing line. The line includes UTP and ScTP jacks for Category 3, 5e, and 6 installations, outlets for up to six ports, and 16-, 32-, 48- and 64-port patch panels.

Thomas & Betts has recently spun off what it considers products which no longer fit its refocused niche--the expanding market for broadband communications infrastructure.
