HellermannTyton has been awarded a strategic supply framework agreement with digital infrastructure firm CityFibre for the provision of passive network components for use in CityFibre’s £2.5bn investment programme to rollout full fibre to five million homes across the UK.

The agreement, which includes a multi-million pound order, strengthens the existing relationship which has seen HellermannTyton supply network components to CityFibre for many years. As part of the new deal, HellermannTyton has produced a range of solutions specifically designed to meet CityFibre’s requirements, including; street cabinets, underground fibre closures and aerial fibre nodes.

This agreement is a firm endorsement supporting the continued growth of CityFibre in the UK. It’s planned that a significant proportion of component manufacture and all product assembly will be based in the UK, providing employment security and opening opportunities for UK manufacturers in the coming years.

HellermannTyton’s Managing Director, Matthew Hunter comments, “It’s an exciting time in the UK for fibre deployment. For HellermannTyton to be involved in CityFibre’s rollout plans provides benefits to both companies and makes a big statement for UK manufacturing.

“The new supplier agreement cements the long-standing relationship between the two companies and sets the foundations for it to continue long into the future. The agreement represents a commitment to product quality through UK manufacturing, providing a responsive approach to customer needs.”

John Franklin, Director of Operations at CityFibre, said: “As we build momentum in our mission to deploy fibre to at least 20% of the UK market, we are seeking strategic partners with the highest standards of quality, reliability and innovation.  HellermannTyton has long proved to us that they can provide the expertise, solutions and support that we require to build a future proofed full-fibre infrastructure for the 21st century. We look forward to building on our partnership in the coming years.”
