Press Release February 22, 2019

Hexatronic signs a strategic supply agreement with CityFibre Ltd totalling 40 MGBP

Hexatronic UK Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexatronic Group AB, has signed a framework supply agreement with CityFibre Ltd, to supply the fibre optic infrastructure builders with passive fibre optic solutions including fibre optic cables, micro duct, connection boxes and aerial nodes. The equipment will be used by CityFibre as the company rolls out its city-wide, full fibre networks to five million UK homes by 2025.

The agreement has an approximate value of 40 MGBP for the supply of components in the deployment of the first one million homes in CityFibre’s roll-out.  It follows a letter of intent, signed with CityFibre last year, worth approximately 6 MGBP with the first shipments already delivered.

“We selected Hexatronic after a significant market assessment with a wide range of suppliers of passive equipment. The quality of their solutions, coupled with their willingness to work closely with us on design refinement, identified them as a perfect partner. We look forward to a long and successful partnership and are confident of their full support as we build Britain’s full fibre future” says John Franklin, Director of Operations at CityFibre.

“We are delighted to have become a strategic supplier to such a dynamic business at such an exciting time. We have been working closely with CityFibre on the development of passive infrastructure solutions that can help drive efficiency in their build programme. Our market-leading FTTH products are characterised by being quick and easy to install, and we support our customers with local field support and training facilities. This partnership with CityFibre is a key milestone for Hexatronic and serves to significantly strengthen our position within the rapidly expanding UK market” says Henrik Larsson Lyon, Hexatronic´s Chief Executive Officer.
