Preformed Line Products, a designer, manufacturer and supplier of high-quality cable anchoring and control hardware and systems, is set to acquire MICOS TELCOM s.r.o., as the company positions itself to support emerging industry technologies like 5G, network densification and metro fiber rings.

MICOS, a manufacturer of passive components for high-speed telecommunications networks, currently concentrates on fiber-to-the-home, optical distribution and datacenter products. This will complement Preformed Line Products' existing portfolio of fiber-optic connectivity devices, including the COYOTE® brand of fiber-optic closures and accessories. 

Preformed's CEO and President Rob Ruhlman stated, "As the demand for fiber network infrastructure accelerates to support next generation services like 5G, the combination of MICOS TELCOM and PLP will provide our global communications customers with an enhanced array of innovative products and technologies. The highly talented people at MICOS TELCOM's operations in Prostějov, Czech Republic, provide a great foundation on which to build our global communications business in the EMEA region and throughout all of our global operations."
