Canterbury, England--Optical fiber components specialist Phoenix Photonics has relocated its operations to larger premises to accommodate growth as it continues to expand. The company is now based at new facilities near Canterbury in Kent. The new headquarters will provide additional space for production, research and development, and sales and marketing. Phoenix is also recruiting in all areas to support the expansion.

The move is a milestone in their plan for growth which began three years ago, notes Phoenix Photonics CEO Ian Giles.

Phoenix Photonics is part of the European Commission’s 7th Framework Collaborative R&D project, MODE-GAP, which is researching and looking to develop the technologies required to manage and operate networks capable of handling up to 100 times greater capacity than is possible with current networks.
