L-com can manufacture fiber optic cable assemblies domestic in as little as 2 days (firstname.lastname@example.org)
That's right. Where a lot of other companies outsource their fiber cable assembly production (sometimes to us!), we manufacture our own right here in North Andover, Massachusetts. That means that if you need a cable at a length that we don't stock, we can usually make it pretty quickly for you at no extra charge. Better yet, we don't even require a minimum order quantity for doing it! So long as it uses components we stock here, we can put it together for you.
Cables like MTP ribbon fibers, however, are not done domestically, so the lead time takes a little longer. Usually, in those cases, its about 1 to 2 weeks, and we still try to keep the minimum order quantity as low as possible, usually 1 piece.
The advantage of getting a fiber made to your specific length is that you could save money by planning ahead. If you have a few days to wait, we could build the fiber cable assembly so that you don't have it any longer than you need. That way, you don't pay for extra bulk cable that isn't being used. In addition, you won't have to worry about coiling up and tucking away the slack on a fiber line once it is run.
