Heraeus Comvance is a new leading fiber supplier from Europe. We are proud to support broadband initiatives of the EU and in other EMEA countries to connect people everywhere and enable equal access to information. We are leveraging our strong history in quartz manufacturing in Germany, and are now offering also high-quality and sustainable telecom fibers from our new factory in Denmark.
——Dr. Jan Vydra, President of Heraeus Comvance
Europe, the origin of Heraeus and base of most units today, has globally the strongest regulation on companies' environmental, social and governance standards: Heraeus Comvance, based in Germany, will fulfill all customer needs for supply chain responsibility, transparency, and sustainability. We set challenging goals and strive to exceed regulatory requirements, ensuring standards that go beyond compliance.
Since the 1970's, Heraeus has helped shape the telecommunication industry. We supplied our quartz tubes to AT&T for development of the MCVD process to initiate application of optical fibers for telecommunication. We later built a factory in the US to supply the growing demand of these tubes. In parallel we developed a large batch synthetic quartz process and combined it with our invention of the online RIC® system, enabling easy and efficient fiber draw from large preforms.
