As a Corning Connections 'Gold' supplier, CUI's warranted fiber-optic products will be in high demand from our distributors and customers who are very interested in adding fiber-optic products to their enterprise and carrier network customers. Cables Unlimited's connector, cable and wire harness product lines complements, adds geographic diversity and custom OEM accounts to RFI's customer base.

We believe this acquisition will be accretive to RFI's earnings in the current fiscal year ending October 31, 2011," said Howard Hill, president and CEO of RF Industries.
