SOLIFOS AG acquires Brugg Kabel AG Fibre-Optic Business Unit
The Fibre-Optic Business Unit at Brugg Kabel AG will be handed over to newly founded company SOLIFOS AG in Windisch with effect from 1 April 2018.
Fibre-optic solutions for modern networks, system solutions and services are developing just as rapidly as broadband and telecommunications requirements and the spread of fibre-optic sensors. The Business Unit built up by Brugg Kabel AG is becoming increasingly important as a result. Brugg Kabel AG will be focusing on its core business in the power cable market as part of its future strategic alignment and has therefore decided to break from the Fibre-Optic Business Unit.
As one of the leading innovators in fibre-optic technology, Brugg Kabel AG will be transferring many years of expertise to SOLIFOS AG on 1 April 2018, having been a supplier from the very beginning. With the founding of a new company, the forward-looking Business Unit will gain a new presence on the market.
This situation lays the foundations for the two independent companies to secure an even better position in the relevant competitive environments with their core expertise. The production and sales site in Windisch will remain open and the 40 members of staff will take up new posts with the newly founded company SOLIFOS AG. This will guarantee continuity with our previous business activities. Ongoing orders and business relationships will be taken up by SOLIFOS AG without any disruption to the usual level of quality and reliability.
The Brugg Kabel AG product range has a proven track record all around the world and, together with long-standing customer relationships and an experienced team of staff, will form the basis of new company SOLIFOS AG. With these things in place, we will strive for the best possible solutions in both planning and responding to our customers' needs.
