Roblon strengthens business through acquisition of Vamafil
As of January 3 2022, Roblon, market leading supplier of strength members for the Composite and Fiber Optic Cable industry, acquired Vamafil spol. S.r.o in the Czech Republic.
Vamafil is a recognised leading provider within high-performance fiber converting services. Vamafil has a modern, approximately 15,000 sqm. factory centrally located in the Czech Republic between Prague and Brno and around 110 employees.
Roblon intends to continue the development of Vamafil’s existing converting business. In addition, the acquisition of Vamafil will facilitate Roblon’s growth in its core business within the fibre optic cable industry and strengthen competitiveness and profitability by relocating selected parts of its production facilities from Denmark to the Czech Republic.
With the relocation, Roblon will move geographically closer to the majority of the manufacturers in the European fibre optic cable industry and shorten lead time and increase flexibility towards customers. The relocation is expected to proceed in mid-spring 2022 and be completed by the end of 2022. By the completion of the relocation of the FOC production, Roblon’s position in Europe will be comparable to that achieved by Roblon in the USA with the location in North Carolina.
