CHH Appoints Comtec As Their Distribution Partner For The FTTx Telecom Market.

CHH’s Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Division has selected Comtec as their distribution partner for Integrated Outdoor Active Cabinets, Passive Cabinets, Power Pillar Solutions & Equipment Racks which are designed and manufactured in the UK to meet industry standards and provide a higher level of performance.

This Strategic Partnership will combine the strengths of both companies to expand their joint offering to the rapidly expanding UK AltNet /FTTx/ Telecom market, and allows customers to benefit from competitive lead times for integrated cabinets, civils and supply chain solutions.

Speaking about how the concept came about, Dan Conway MD from Comtec, part of ETC Group explained “Comtec provides a One-Stop-Shop Product Portfolio and Supply Chain Management Solutions to the Alt Net and Telecom Market and fully integrated active cabinets is an extension of this offering. As our customers increase the scale and speed of deploying fibre networks they often don’t have the time or desire to integrate their street side cabinets themselves. Our partnership with CHH provides continuity of supply, reduced lead-times, technical expertise and innovation to allow customers to achieve their network build milestones”.

John Greene – Head of Sales & Business Development of Comtec’s AltNet Sales Division commented “we have worked with CHH for many years and have witnessed their engineering capabilities and ability to deliver creative solutions to complex cabinet designs, on time and to exceed customers’ expectations”.

This distribution agreement brings CHH’s 32 years of experience in design, engineering & manufacturing within the telecoms market and couples it with the strength that Comtec offers in product distribution and supply chain solutions.

Paul Turner, CEO of CHH added that “we are already very successful in this market space and have made great progress in design, engineering and manufacturing cabinet’s for some of the larger AltNet’s & Telco customers, but we wanted to be able to reach many more companies at a faster pace and combine the added value that Comtec, a supply chain solutions company, can offer”.

Nick Turley – Head of Sales for CHH manufacturing Division said “our experienced engineering team works directly with end users to quickly assess their needs and we have already proved this concept works. We have seen significant gains for Comtecs’ customers by combining the best of what both companies have to offer. We have worked together on a number of projects, and we believe that this collaboration will see both companies continue to expand their supply chain expertise to actively lower lead times and increase the stock holding of the key components needed to facilitate faster delivery times for the AltNet & Telco market”.

This strategic partnership has already secured significant multi-million £ contracts for the supply of CHH Conex manufactured integrated active cabinets and this announcement comes ahead of many more opportunities in the sales funnel.
