Webro becomes Fujikura’s telecoms cable distributor in the UK

Fujikura Europe has appointed Webro Cables & Connectors as a UK distribution partner for Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC) with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®).

The partnership will see Webro act as the sole cable distributor for Fujikura cable, serving the telecoms market with a supply of air blown 144, 288 and 432-fibre cables.

The distribution agreement is an ideal fit for both companies. Thanks to significant distribution capabilities, a large warehouse operation, and 350 years of combined industry experience, Webro’s team of dedicated experts are superbly positioned to increase the availability of air blown WTC with SWR® to the telecoms market, with the agility and responsiveness for which it is known. Ahead of the official market launch, the Webro team underwent extensive training with Fujikura to ensure outstanding customer support and service.

With higher fibre density and a reduction in splicing and preparation times by up to 72%, Fujikura Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC) with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®) is faster to splice with the simultaneous connection of 12 fibres per splice. This removes errors, reduces installation time, lowers labour cost, and minimises emergency repair time. Ultimately, it delivers a lower total cost of ownership for telcos.

Tom Bambury, Managing Director of Fujikura Europe, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to enhance the awareness of Fujikura’s product offering and value propositions to customers in the UK market. The partnership brings together our world-leading technology and Webro’s best in class service.”

Webro Sales Director, Chris Bacon said: “We’re thrilled to enter this exciting distribution partnership with Fujikura. We have an ambitious growth plan, and this alliance is pivotal to our future success as we look to provide our existing customers and new prospects with this innovative solution that offers high-density ribbon cable with fast deployment, improved duct utilisation, and at lower cost in terms of total ownership.”

Fujikura WTC with SWR® is fully stocked by Webro, and available on a next day delivery service.
