Fiber Optic Cabinets, Cables, Pedestals and Terminals


I’m wearing my proud CEO hat today. Clearfield has been named a Eureka! Award winner by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal in it’s first-ever awards program recognizing outstanding innovation. We are being toasted for “innovations in the field of fiber optic deployment and for a creative approach to designing products that uniquely fill the needs of the customer and the industry as a whole.” Most notably, our engineering team will be recognized for their innovative work on the FieldShield Optical Fiber Delivery and Protection System.

According to Business Journal, the Eureka! Awards were established to recognize companies of all sizes that have invented new products or new ways of doing things that have altered and re-energized or disrupted their own operations and their industry, as well as delighted their customers.

We’re so thrilled that the Business Journal noticed.

Early on, we recognized that the high cost of labor for a typical network build was driving the demand for simple fiber deployment solutions that would reduce labor costs. So, Clearfield has built not only FieldShield, but our entire fiber management platform with products that scale to the environment and are simple to deploy – taking away the need for costly, skilled labor. Whether it’s fiber to the home, business class or cell backhaul, we look to answer the needs of the customer and the industry as a whole – and this commitment is the driving force behind every project Clearfield and its engineering team design.

On June 12th, I will be hoisting my glass to toast our amazing engineering team at the Eureka! Awards Reception in Minneapolis. But I’ll be singing their praises every other day too!
