Fujikura Receives Customer Value Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan


Spartanburg, SC – Fujikura Ltd., AFL’s parent company, announces it has received the Global Fusion Splicers Customer Value Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan, Inc. The award recognizes the high quality and reliability of Fujikura’s optical fiber fusion splicers as well as its price competitiveness and exceptional after-sales service provided by Fujikura’s worldwide distribution network.
Since 1978 when the first fusion splicer was introduced, Fujikura’s splicers have been a global benchmark in the industry. Fujikura has continuously developed new and improved features that enhance the performance including splice time, environmental resistance, smaller size and lighter weight.
Fujikura’s latest models include the Fujikura 70S and Fujikura 21S. The 70S fusion splicer is a fully ruggedized, core alignment fusion splicer that provides consistent low loss splice performance. The splicer’s exceptional features also include an automatic wind protector and heater cover function not found on other fusion splicer models. The Fujikura 21S is a mid-range active cladding alignment fusion splicer. Moveable v-grooves eliminate splicer errors caused by dust and other contaminants. Its rugged and compact size makes it highly reliable.
AFL is the exclusive distributor of Fujikura fusion splicers in North America. For more information on AFL, its products and services, visit
