RFS makes a 7-figure investment in North American operations

Broadcast and telecommunications infrastructure specialist supports US growth with huge investment in cable production


Meriden, CT USA, March 11, 2021 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of wireless and broadcast infrastructure, announces a 7-figure investment at its manufacturing facility in Connecticut to support growing demand for its HYBRIFLEX riser and jumper cables, that combine DC power and optical fiber in a single cable to reduce installation time, costs and complexity

RFS has recently invested in the latest state-of-the-art cable manufacturing equipment, which has been custom made to ensure maximum efficiency and productivity at the manufacturing facility. Prompted by a need to significantly increase production capability, flexibility, and capacity to meet customer demand, the investment has enabled RFS to react even more swiftly to requests for new designs and prototypes.

Customers in the region have shown an increasing demand for RFS’s HYBRIFLEX fiber and power solutions for 4G, 5G and beyond. By expanding US operations, RFS is set to serve the US market throughout the evolution to 5G.
