Emtelle, Dantex merge

May 30, 2007
May 30, 2007 -- The companies are combining their offerings to deliver ducted fiber network solutions "from city ring to customer premises."

May 30, 2007 -- The boards of directors of Emtelle (London, UK) and Dantex (Sønder Felding, Denmark) have announced the merger of the two companies. Financial details of the merger were not disclosed.

According to the companies, the combined entity will be among the top providers of ducted network and blown fiber solutions, offering a broad ducting solutions platform for companies building fiber telecommunications access networks.

The merger will allow the combined business to offer a product range designed to meet all network construction requirements for FTTX, say the companies. The companies say their combined technical expertise, geographical presence and manufacturing capacity will deliver unparalleled service to the market, providing a platform for further international growth.

Emtelle is among the main telecommunication duct suppliers in the UK, with its Fibreflow-branded blown fiber technology and passive infrastructure solution. The company says it produces a very small (starting at 3-mm in size) and lightweight yet robust passive infrastructure system based on micro ducts, into which proprietary "fibre units" consisting of 2 - 12 fibers are blown.

Dantex is a supplier of HDPE multi-duct systems in Scandinavia. The company says it has grown in recent years, having introduced several new products and service concepts. The company specializes in the manufacture of larger diameter, loose multi-duct systems.

Both companies offer a range of training programs and services.

George Brown and Mads A. Høgfeldt, the current chief executives of Emtelle and Dantex respectively, are appointed joint CEOs of the merged entity, which will be based in Hawick, Scotland. Nigel Melville has been appointed chairman of the merged companies. Paul Naastepad and Kenn Byllemos have been appointed executive directors.

"The result of the merger is a new company offering yet more competitive solutions and services," comments Høgfeldt. "These solutions and services deliver the optimal return on investment in fibre network technology for our partners and customers during the entire network lifetime."

"Market demand has shifted to end-to-end fiber access network solutions," adds Brown. "Both Emtelle and Dantex have invested heavily in developing integrated solutions for their customers that go beyond the basic ducts and integrate innovative network technologies."
