CityFibre CEO Greg Mesch in interview about the strategic partnership with Hexatronic
29 Apr 2019
Greg Mesch explains why Hexatronic is a strategic supplier for CityFibre in their rollout of full fibre network in the UK.
In this interview made at the FTTH Conference in Amsterdam, Greg Mesch refers to a 40 MGBP supply agreement signed by CityFibre and Hexatronic earlier this year. Hexatronic was chosen by CityFibre as the main supplier of passive fiberoptic equipment.
Hexatronic develops high quality products, which also are very efficient to install. Since the installation costs (approx. 80%) are significantly higher compared to material costs (approx. 20%) in FTTH projects, effective installation is the key to saving time and money. Hexatronic also provides training, which is seen by CityFibre as an important advantage according to Greg Mesch.

As the agreement was signed, John Franklin, Director of Operations at CityFibre, described Hexatronic as the perfect partner:
“The quality of their solutions, coupled with their willingness to work closely with us on design refinement, identified them as a perfect partner. We look forward to a long and successful partnership and are confident of their full support as we build Britain’s full fibre future”
