STL is serving the optical and network build needs of its customers with design innovation and shorter lead times through its optical cable and connectivity manufacturing setups in Italy.

Another multi-million dollar partnership is with a leading European service provider to connect 15 Mn homes with STL’s specially adapted and co-developed optical connectivity solutions. Recently, the company also won its first Optical Connectivity solutions order for Data centres in France. Behind this achievement is STL’s R&D and application engineering expertise which enables STL to design solutions suited for the region. Here are some examples:

  • Armored Reinforced Plastic (ARP) Drop Light Cables - with crush resistance upto 5000 Newton.
  • All-Dielectric Self Supporting (ADSS) cables - high strength and heat-resistant cables
  • Microcables - Small diameter with upto 4X density
  • Indoor microcables - compliant with EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR)
  • IP68-rated Opto-CRS - Ruggedised fibre optic joint enclosures and Drop Cable Port and Connector Systems

Speaking on STL’s progress in the region, Paul Atkinson, CEO - Optical Networking Business,  STL, said: "Our journey to become a preferred partner in enabling advanced optical fibre infrastructure across UK and Europe has been a fulfilling one. We deeply engage with telecom companies to co-create future-ready and sustainable solutions. Our solutions are specifically engineered for the European context and will help fiberise Europe at speed and scale.”

At an overall company level, STL reported record revenues of  GBP 716 Mn, growing 27% over the previous year along with an impressive 29% and 51% growth in EBITDA and PAT respectively.* Last year, STL had shared its strategic intent to drive focused growth ,which it followed through this year, with solid execution of the outlined priorities, resulting in a financially robust business. This is reflected in the company’s full year and sequential quarter-on-quarter performance.
