Framlingham: M2FX lands �3m investment to boost growth

A FIRM which makes flexible protection for fibre-optic cable is celebrating after securing a further �3million to help boost its growth.

Framlingham-based M2FX, which makes Miniflex, now has a total of �7million in investment to help it expand. The company moved into a 2,500 sq m manufacturing plant at Parham earlier this year.

It has enjoyed remarkable growth, and its blue-chip customers now include communications giants BT and AT&T and car makers Audi.

The new investment was led by Linnaeus Capital Partner BV.

“This represents a great vote of confidence in the long-term potential of our company,” said M2FX chief financial officer Joe Byrne.

“We are the fastest growing organisation in our market category and we will now be able to invest even more heavily in our world class manufacturing capability and add extra speed to our growth.”

Chief executive Tom Carpenter said the investment the firm had just secured was an “affirmation” of the technology underlying its fibre optic solutions and recognition of the significant opportunities available to the business.
