B3 Cable Solutions (B3) and Greenwoods Communications have signed a strategic business partnership establishing Greenwoods Communications as distributor of B3’s approved internal / central office telecommunications cables.

B3 is the only manufacturer and supplier of copper cables to have had its products approved by BT, for use in the BT networks.

Greenwoods Communications is one of the UK’s leading independent providers of customer solutions for network operators and OEMs. With the partnership in place, Greenwoods will hold inventory of B3’s comprehensive range of BT-approved copper cables. This will ensure Greenwoods can reliably supply its customers with the widest range of high quality cabling.

Mark Williams, Sales Director of B3 Cable Solutions, explains the thinking behind the partnership: “B3 will continue to supply and service the major UK telcos directly. Using Greenwoods’ to distribute our copper cables will open up our product set to a significantly wider section of the UK market, and will increase the deployment of BT approved copper cables. This is particularly important with the impending roll-out of the BT 21CN network.”

Both B3 and Greenwoods Communications have built enviable reputations for supplying quality products, and delivering into customer-led solutions. As a result, there is strong synergy between the two companies, and this, combined with the company’s complementary products and service set, will ensure that the partnership will deliver real added value to Greenwoods’ distribution channels, customers and OEMs.

Peter Skinner, Commercial Director at Greenwoods Communications explains how the partnership will benefit customers: “This agreement means that Greenwoods will be able to offer the highest quality cable at competitive prices to carriers, operators and OEMs in the UK and ensure that they can count on the availability of high quality cable products.”
