Cirencester firm expands operations in Europe and India to meet increasing demand

Gloucestershire based fibre optic specialist ProLabs has announced the expansion of their European and India operations as a result of significant new business.

ProLabs, which has its UK headquarters in South Cerney, claims to be the world's largest independent supplier of fibre optic transceivers and high-speed cabling.

The business has revealed growth of more than 100 per cent year on year. Due to this success, they have just increased their manufacturing facilities to support growth projections of 200 per cent and have recently taken on additional staff.

To keep pace with demand they are also planning to build on this expansion in 2021.

Jason Moate, operations director at ProLabs said: "During this year we have seen a high demand for our products across all the countries we serve in Europe and also in India.

"Although there is a greater need for our products in the current environment with many people and organisations working remotely, we have also gained market share as customers increase their demand for high quality, short lead times, and lower costs."
