Cinch FIBRECO connectors now available from Lane Electronics
We are very pleased to announce that we have signed a new Franchise Agreement with Cinch Connectivity for the distribution of the FIBRECO range of expanded beam fibre-optic connectors across the UK and Europe.
FIBRECO expanded beam connectors and cable assemblies offer high performance, flexible, cost-effective solutions to critical harsh environment communication applications such as defence, aerospace, security, offshore, mining, outside broadcast and other industrial applications.
We will be servicing existing UK FIBRECO customers and be developing new business using our in-house stock of connectors, UK-made value-added cable assemblies and back-to-back supply from the FIBRECO facility where required.
Nick Wheeler, Sales Director of Lane Electronics, comments “This new addition to our product portfolio will enhance our fibre-optic and harsh environment connector offering, adding value to a broad range of our existing and new customers with access to another prestige and globally recognised manufacturer.”
Keeley Jefferies, European Distribution Manager of Cinch Connectivity Solutions, says “Cinch are the market leading manufacturer of fibre optic expanded beam connectivity, and partnering with Lane Electronics with our Fibreco product range gives our customers a wide availability of our product portfolio with short turnaround times, and the ability to service small to large volume requirements.”

Projects undertaken include super heavy-duty connectors for Oil and Gas drilling applications, wet-mate expanded beam inserts for sub-sea connectors, hermetically sealed expanded beam connectors for Mil-Aero applications and hybrid electrical/optical connectors for Naval ballistics applications.
