CommScope, 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 year.

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.”
