Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications
networks, received a Special Public Service Award from CableFAX
Magazine for the company’s efforts in assisting customers that were
impacted by tornados that struck several areas of the United States this
CableFAX announced the award in the July
issue which also listed the rest of the 2011 Top Ops Award winners.
“On behalf of every employee at CommScope, I’d like to thank CableFAX
for this honor,” said Eddie Edwards, president and chief executive
officer, CommScope. “We believe that corporate responsibility means
taking actions that have a positive impact on our people, our community
and our business. We are extremely humbled that the magazine would
bestow this accolade upon us as we strive for strong corporate
governance and good citizenship.”
CableFAX honored CommScope for its quick response in shipping fiber
optic and co-axial cable, as well as humanitarian aid, to Cable One in
Joplin, MO following a major tornado that devastated the entire town in
May. CommScope was able to deliver supplies and aid within 48 hours
using CommScope’s Cable Transport team—a fleet of trucks run by
CommScope—so Cable One could begin restoring communications.
As part of CommScope’s deliveries, any available space remaining on the
trucks was filled with humanitarian aid such as coolers to keep water
supplies ice cold as well as provisions, generators and blankets for
those in the hardest-hit areas.
In addition to assisting Cable One in Joplin, the Cable Transport teams
were also dispatched to assist Charter Communications after tornados
damaged areas of Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee in April.
“Having our own fleet of trucks provides us with unmatched flexibility
to respond to our customers at a moments notice,” said Ric Johnsen,
senior vice president, Broadband, CommScope. “Assisting our customers
during natural disasters is all part of the unique service model we
offer our customers.”
