Atlanta-based OFS Fitel is a leading manufacturer and innovator in the fiber optic cable industry. In recent years, the company has worked closely with movie and TV productions to provide fiber optic cable solutions—and has earned rave reviews for its work in this sector.

In recent years, Womble Carlyle attorneys Joe Foltz and Mark Burr in Atlanta have developed license agreements for OFS under which major motion picture and television production companies have used the OFS campus for filming- with the added bonus of using the state of the art fiber optic products manufactured by OFS on the site.

Congratulations to the OFS Fitel team!
