Optical Cable Corporation (Nasdaq: OCCF) announced a record order input of $10.2 million for March, surpassing record highs achieved in late 2000. March 2001 order input increased by 70 percent from March 2000.

March's strong order flow brings Optical Cable's trailing 12-month order input to $87.4 million, exceeding the Company's fiscal 2001 target of $86 million in orders. Historically, 100 percent of order input is realized in sales.

Included in the March totals was a $3.1 million blanket order from China.
