Charles Industries acquires Corning's molded pedestal line

Oct. 27, 2008
October 27, 2008 -- Charles Industries has reached an agreement with Corning Cable Systems to acquire the company's molded pedestal product line for CATV and telecommunications applications.

October 27, 2008 -- Charles Industries Ltd. announced that it has reached an agreement with Corning Cable Systems LLC to acquire the company's molded pedestal product line for CATV and telecommunications applications.

As a provider of fiber, copper and hybrid fiber-coaxial outside plant (OSP) enclosures to the telecommunications industry, Charles maintains that the acquisition of Corning's non-metallic pedestal line will allow Charles to broaden its product offerings to the cable and telecommunications industries.

"The acquisition of Corning's proven and established pedestal product line enables Charles to continue to offer telecommunication service providers, cable companies, and multiple service operators a line of products that they have approved, deployed, and trusted in their networks," comments Jack Wood, Charles' vice president of sales. "Leveraging our expertise with environmental enclosures, active and passive optical fiber, and thermal management, Charles is uniquely qualified to now support cable operators' traditional coax, fiber-to-the-home, and RF-over-glass initiatives as they seek to extend their fiber networks closer to the subscriber."

The newly acquired product line features above-grade non-louvered vertical pedestals, louvered vertical pedestals, and louvered low-profile pedestals for CATV, broadband and telecommunications applications. The products provide a variety of mounting options and security for taps, splitters, amplifiers, line extenders, and nodes. Several locking options are available to address specific security needs.

"We are pleased that Charles Industries, Ltd. will be offering continued support to our valued pedestal customers," remarks Mickey Smith, director of sales for Corning Cable Systems. "This agreement will benefit service providers, cable companies, and multiple service operators because Corning and Charles share the same philosophy of superior customer service."

Corning Cable Systems says it will continue to support fiber management hardware such as the company's OptiSheath MultiPort Terminal for use in molded or extruded pedestals.
