Light Brigade’s portfolio of instructor led, fiber optic skills training and fiber optic tooling and product distribution, is being expanded with the addition of Air Blown Fiber (ABF) training, equipment, and field support services for the FTTx market.
Light Brigade and JETTING AB have entered into an OEM Distribution Agreement where Light Brigade will be stocking distributor for JETTING’s unique range of fiber blowing machines and provide in-field services for training and support throughout the USA.
Light Brigade headquartered in Kent, WA will be offering national coverage with its additional distribution hubs in Dallas, TX and Clinton, SC. Further centers are expected in the future.
In August 2020, Light Brigade was acquired by HEXATRONIC Group AB, a global leader in blown fiber system solutions, fiber optic products and training services. Hexatronic Canada has been distributing and supporting the Canadian region with JETTING ABF equipment since 2019.
Quote from Martin Lee, President Light Brigade:
“Skills training for fiber optics is our core competancy, and it was only natural we bring together the demand from blown fiber installation growth with our expertise at training the industry workforce. With our expanding presence with the addition of regional training centers, we are positioned to provide the onsite field support services required by the network operators.”
About Light Brigade:
Since 1987, Light Brigade has trained 75,000+ students in courses ranging from basic fiber optic theory and practices to comprehensive design and installation courses. We are not just theory based. Our hands-on labs reflect real world work scenarios, providing the practical training needed to improve operational efficiencies by reducing costly errors. Our diverse team of trainers allows us to ensure the right instructor is leading the right course where their industry knowledge and experience can be leveraged. We work with our industry veteran instructors to tailor programs for technicians, installers, engineers, designers, and other support staff from a variety of industries. We offer several routes for training and can tailor any program to suit your needs.
About JETTING AB:
Jetting arose in response to the market lacking reliable and easy-to-use fibre blowing machines. Håkan, who runs Jetting, took the matter into his own hands and developed machines that corresponded to their own requirements for fibre blowing. Today, Jetting has its own production of reliable machines that are marketed and sold under the JETTING brand.
We believe it is good to be different from others. To be unique. With our experience as a basis and with innovation as the driving force, we design and manufacture fiber blowers of the highest quality. We do this in our own facility in Tidaholm in the west of Sweden. Our products are created by professionals, to be used by professionals. For us, it is about so much more than just developing a product. We want to use our expert knowledge to make your working day as a fiber blower easier and more efficient. And your experience in the cable trenches a little bit different but significantly better.
The cooperation with Light Brigade brings the best you can get together! Skills training and unique machines for fiber optic installation. This combination to get your fiber broadband SUPER BLOWN!
