Milliken Renames MaxCell Innerduct to OptiCell as Part of Growth Strategy in Asia-Pacific Market


SHANGHAI, Apr. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

Milliken Infrastructure Solutions, (http://www.infrastructure.milliken.com )

LLC, a subsidiary of Milliken & Company, today announced that it has renamed

its existing line of innerduct product line from MaxCell(R)* to OptiCell(TM).

The name change to OptiCell will be exclusive to the Asia-Pacific market.

All existing products under the previous MaxCell name will retain the exact

same specifications under the newly named OptiCell line, including reel lengths

and sizes.

"The move to rename our product line in Asia-Pacific to OptiCell gives us

significantly more flexibility to introduce new, innovative products throughout

the Asia-Pacific market," said Dale Willis, vice president for Milliken

Infrastructure Solutions, LLC. "The name change will have no impact on our

commitment to providing the superior level of products and service our

customers expect from Milliken."

Embodied in products like OptiCell(TM) - a patented flexible textile innerduct

system that triples usable space in conduit - Milliken Infrastructure brings to

market solutions that change the face of the industry. The unique textile

construction allows OptiCell to conform to the shape of cables placed within,

greatly reducing the wasted space associated with rigid innerduct.

Installed by the largest telecommunications companies, cable MSOs, and Fortune

500 companies, OptiCell is the standard for allowing companies to maximize

their conduit space while reducing total system cost in a variety of

applications, including:

    -- Telecom

    -- Cable TV

    -- Power/Utilities

    -- Municipalities

    -- University, Corporate and Hospital campuses

    -- Military and Government Installations
