Compared to other such acquisitions, this one happened comparatively fast; a small 4 months from primary discussions to shutting the deal. Strath Goodship, one-time Miranda CEO who will right away go on to lead the Miranda business (and keep the brand name) beneath Belden, mentioned he was jovially astounded to see that a few companies voiced interest. Miranda currently generates about $200 million a year in worldwide sales.

In the nearby term, the both companies will concentration on integrating Telecast Fiber Systems’ manufacturing, that right away functions out of Worcester, Mass., in to Miranda’s Quebec, Canada-based production facilities.
