Shanghai, China. – Milliken Infrastructure Solutions, LLC, a subsidiary of Milliken & Company, today announced that it has renamed its existing line of innerduct product line from MaxCell®* to OptiCellTM. The name change to OptiCell will be exclusive to the Asia-Pacific market.

All existing products under the previous MaxCell name will retain the exact same specifications under the newly named OptiCell line, including reel lengths and sizes.

“The move to rename our product line in Asia-Pacific to OptiCell gives us significantly more flexibility to introduce new, innovative products throughout the Asia-Pacific market,” said Dale Willis, vice president for Milliken Infrastructure Solutions, LLC. “The name change will have no impact on our commitment to providing the superior level of products and service our customers expect from Milliken.”

Embodied in products like OptiCell™—a patented flexible textile innerduct system that triples usable space in conduit—Milliken Infrastructure brings to market solutions that change the face of the industry. The unique textile construction allows OptiCell to conform to the shape of cables placed within, greatly reducing the wasted space associated with rigid innerduct.

Installed by the largest telecommunications companies, cable MSOs, and Fortune 500 companies, OptiCell is the standard for allowing companies to maximize their conduit space while reducing total system cost in a variety of applications, including:

  • Telecom

  • Cable TV

  • Power Utilities

  • Municipalities

  • University, Corporate and Hospital campuses

  • Military and Government Installations
