Velox LLC has opened a new fiber splicing division in Huntsville. With the need for fiber infrastructure rapidly growing across the Southeast, Velox decided to expand. As more networks develop, fiber splicing teams will help build and maintain those networks.
“With the rapid growth of the telecommunication industry, we’re aligning with that growth to better serve our customers safely and efficiently,” said Tom Counts, CEO of Velox. “This investment, along with hiring a career builder for recruitment, will allow us to continue serving our clients with the support, efficiency and attention to detail they have come to expect from Velox.”
Velox has named Robert Queen as splicing division manager. Queen has 16 years of experience in the telecom industry. His understanding of splicing techniques and expertise will allow Velox to offer more telecom solutions to customers, including fiber splicing for network builds and standalone services, the company said.
In addition, the company has named Charles McElroy Sr. as safety director. With more than 30 years of experience, McElroy has served in a variety of positions, including lineman, crew foreman, general foreman and director of safety.
