Following the takeover and rebrand of Dubai-based AfriPipes in December 2021, Emtelle says it is expanding its global footprint in the FTTX industry. It also added an additional 9,000m² of manufacturing space from five manufacturing sites, including the US and the US in April 2022, providing the company with a platform for future growth. As part of its expansion plans, the Emtelle Group has appointed Anubhav Singh as its new sales director Middle East and Asia Pacific.

Singh is an experienced international sales manager with more than 15 years working around the world, including the past seven at AfriPipes, Anubhav will lead Emtelle’s sales team aiming to boost the company’s presence in key markets including the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Iraq, Oman and Saudi Arabia, as well as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

Anubhav aims to have more Emtelle sales presence in individual target markets locally to further boost the company’s profile.

Anubhav said, “Emtelle has a huge range of innovative solutions that both the Middle East and Asia Pacific markets are very enthusiastic about. These solutions will make a huge difference to connectivity in these regions, many of which are densely populated and lacking in fibre infrastructure, especially when it comes to Fibre To The Home and 5G networks.” He added, “Not only that, but the manufacturing space in UAE which Emtelle now has here provides huge capacity for extra growth, significantly shortens supply chains and guarantees its customers security of supply. This will in turn meet the current environment of unprecedented demand for blown fibre and passive network solutions.”

Tony Rodgers, Chief Executive Officer for Emtelle, said, “Emtelle continues to consolidate its position as a market leader in blown fibre and passive network solutions across the globe. We now aim is to use this opportunity to significantly grow our business, and with it our brand, in the coming months and years.”
