Now Woman-Owned, Still American Made

American Fibertek Proudly Continues 35 Year History of Manufacturing American Products and Mitigating Risks of Foreign Elements

Now Woman-Owned Company, Acquired by Industry Leader Donna Poulos

SOMERSET, N.J., March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — American Fibertek (AFI – https://americanfibertek.com/) recently announced it had been wholly acquired by seasoned industry leader Donna Poulos. AFI is a technology manufacturing firm that produces a wide variety of electronic network security devices, switches, power supplies, converters and other crucial digital network hardware. AFI has been firmly established over the course of three decades, with a solid customer base, and will continue to produce its high-quality products manufactured in America by American citizens.

“We are looking to utilize a new approach within our industry, placing a new emphasis on the importance of American made, domestically controlled products,” said Poulos, AFI President and Owner. “Recent history has shown us that too many variables lie within and around foreign products, creating an unstable environment, even for American companies when they depend too heavily upon foreign elements.”

About American Fibertek

Founded in 1984, AFI has been a solid fixture in the security technologies industry and provides superior fiber solutions for security applications, whether those applications are standalone or integrated into an existing IT network. AFI has the resources needed to help a wide spectrum of companies address bandwidth issues, environmental monitoring, and optimizing all necessary security functions. AFI products are foundational for those integrators and distributors who set product quality and dependability as a top business priority.

AFI transmission systems are designed to be a transparent interface between audio, video and data communications devices like cameras, DVRs, NVRs, monitors, servers, access control equipment and alarm systems. And AFI Ethernet devices provide a varied selection of switches, media converters and reporters that give a specific network advantage. AFI also meets a large client demand for Buy American Act compliant (BAA) products, and proudly controls every aspect of its manufacturing process – eliminating middle-man risks and costs.

“Established American companies are always a safer option for clients, because those companies have proven their reliability, incur no tariffs and are not susceptible to foreign market or currency manipulation,” said Poulos. “People know that instinctively, and that’s why you see so many companies who claim to be ‘Made in the U.S.A’ – but are, in actuality, just American-based assembly facilities using foreign parts. AFI has a solid tradition of American manufacture, without outsourcing labor to foreign plants, or cutting corners with cheaply made foreign hardware. We stress this so much because it’s fundamentally important. And we’ll continue that legacy under my watch.”
