OCC acquired SMP Data Communications on May 30, 2008. The acquisition enabled OCC to offer integrated fiber-optic and copper data communications cabling and connectivity products to its customers.

OCC says the merger is consistent with its one-brand strategy, as well as OCC's continued integration of the functional teams of the two companies.

"OCC, now under a single brand, is a one-stop provider of fiber-optic and copper cabling and connectivity products to the enterprise market, offering an integrated suite of high-quality cabling and connectivity solutions to our customers," said Michael Newman, vice president of international sales and global marketing.

The merger of SMP Data Communications into Optical Cable Corporation was effective on October 31, 2009, by filings in the State of Delaware and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
