Cube Optics and NSG sign distribution agreement for Japan

3 March 2003 -- Cube Optics, Mainz, Germany, has signed a distribution agreement with Nippon Sheet Glass (NSG), to provide a channel for Cube's products in Japan.

3 March 2003 -- Cube Optics, Mainz, Germany, the developer of miniaturised fibre-optic components for telecommunications and data communications today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Nippon Sheet Glass (NSG).

NSG is a Japanese manufacturer and supplier of advanced glass chemistry products for optical communications, electronics, automotive, and building industries. It will handle distribution in Japan.

The Micro Optics Company (MOC), NSG's fibre-optical branch, will sell and technically support CUBO's extremely small and highly flexible Wavelengths Division Multiplexers (WDM), couplers and switches.

NSG, inventor of the SELFOC GRIN lenses and part of the Sumitomo Group, with subsidiaries in Asia, Europe, and North America, has chosen to co-operate with Cube Optics because of CUBO's revolutionary packaging technology for fiber-optical components.

The distribution agreement was signed after a previous test-marketing period where NSG achieved an outstanding interest for CUBO's miniaturized components in the Japanese market. The partners expect this alliance to bring good synergy effects and to expand their fibre-optic business.
