VDC Trading, one of the UK’s main distributors of Van Damme cabling, has announced that the Van Damme Tourlight Range of fibre cables has been approved by Neutrik for use in its opticalCON assemblies.
In addition to the product certification, VDC Trading has seen its Neutrik opticalCON Service Centre certification upgraded to the highest level of Class A COCA (Certified opticalCON Assembly), following continued investment in clean room facilities and training. VDC will now be able to offer Van Damme Tourlight II OM3 50/125 and OS1 9/125 Superior Fibre Solutions terminated with Neutrik connectors at optimal turnaround times, delivering a high speed, fibre optic solution to clients globally.
Paul Marchesi, VDC Trading general manager and Neutrik approved Class A Coca Assembler, comments, “We’re delighted to have achieved the Neutrik COCA accreditation for the successful Van Damme Tourlight Range which further strengthens our offering to clients.
“We have been providing fast turnaround, high quality copper cabling solutions for many years and are now able to ensure clients have access to a high quality, robust fibre cable solution with an equally fast turnaround to meet growing demand.”
London-based Autograph, one of Europe’s leading theatre installation and rental companies, is one of VDC’s first clients to take advantage of the new Neutrik certification. Technical Sales Manager Chris Austin said, “We’ve used Van Damme’s Tourlight fibre, terminated with Neutrik opticalCON connectors for us by VDC, for a number of recent projects including the York Theatre Royal and The Barbican Centre. The very quick turnaround that VDC delivered was a real benefit to us and helped us hit project deadlines, while still meeting the quality standards our clients expect.”
