Cable Winding

Need fibre cable?

From manufacturing lengths to shorter manageable drums, we've got your fibre cable needs covered. We supply a wide range of cable up to 432 fibres (enough for a town) down to internal single or 2 fibre cable. Not only do we have it in stock in volume, you don't have to buy a whole drum - just what you need. Simply tell us your requirements and we'll provide the exact size and length you need to help ease your installation project.

Cutting and coiling

We have a range of winding machines to cater for any requirement. From fibre cable diameters of 2 to 28mm with various cross sections (such as figure of eight or flat), we can cut and coil to any required length and re-wind cable from 100m to 4km in length. For additional peace of mind, we offer quality check optical testing of dispatched cable using OTDR and/or cut back measurement methods.

Storage and delivery

Our logistics department has a common goal for every customer: to have the right item in the right quantity at the right time at the right place for the right price and in the right condition. That's why we store all our incoming cable master drums in our huge warehouse - secure, fully insured, with 24-hour alarm monitoring and police response.

We use our own transport to quickly deliver products within a 250-mile radius of Ipswich. For longer distances across the UK, we offer a tailored, prompt, and reliable service from key distribution companies that is fully tracked with proof of delivery.
