STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NorthLab Photonics and 3SAE Technologies have executed a joint private label agreement to expand their fiber optic preparation, glass processing and fusion splicing product lines for their customers in Europe and North America respectively.

Concurrent with this agreement is the launch of NorthLab’s new Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver and 3SAE’s Large Diameter Bend Proof Tester.

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with 3SAE to now include joint private labelling,” said Per Karlsson, Chief Executive Officer of NorthLab Photonics. NorthLab’s longstanding distributorship of 3SAE’s products will now include private labelling 3SAE’s Thermal Stripper, Ultrasonic Cleaner, End Face Prep Station II, Linear Tensile Tester and 3SAE’s brand new Large Diameter Bend Proof Tester for its European market.

Correspondingly, 3SAE will private label NorthLab’s brand new Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver for its North American market. “With over 20 years’ experience working with the world’s largest photonics companies, we’ve developed a large diameter fiber cleaver that provides superior performance and value for the fiber laser market,” Karlsson said. “We are certain that branding our cleaver under the 3SAE label in North America will complement their already strong lineup of fiber preparation tools,” said Karlsson.

“We’re delighted to be the first to bring NorthLab’s Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver to the North American market,” said Don Grasso, Chief Executive Officer of 3SAE Technologies. “This joint private label agreement will heighten brand recognition for our key products globally. Customers of both 3SAE and NorthLab will benefit from this strategic agreement,” Grasso added.

NorthLab Photonics and 3SAE Technologies will launch the new NorthLab Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver and the new 3SAE Large Diameter Bend Proof Tester at Photonics West 2014 in San Francisco, Feb. 4-6, in booth #4936.
