Rochester-based Fibertech is looking westward again for its latest expansion project. Today they announced plans to build an extensive fiber network over in Michigan.
The initial network buildout will cover some 750 route miles, extending deep into the suburbs to hook up Trenton, Canton, Dearborn, Southfield, Warren, Troy and Chesterfield amongst others. Despite the shrinkage in recent years of Detroit itself, metro Detroit's 3.7M people will be one of the largest population centers Fibertech has taken.
For many years Fibertech's Midwestern footprint consisted of just Columbus and Indianapolis metro fiber. But last year's Ohio expansion into five new markets signaled a renewed interest in the region and has given them a growing regional presence. The company has been aggressively pursuing organic growth and largely ignoring all the M&A activity in recent years.
