Firecomms appoints CEO

Firecomms Ltd of Cork, Ireland, a manufacturer of transceivers (including its OptoLock technology, licensed worldwide) for consumer plastic optical fiber (POF), says that Hsin Chia has joined it as CEO. The firm says that Chia has experience that should help to drive strategic expansion in its focus markets.

Prior to joining Firecomms, Chia led the cross-functional team at GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc that developed that firm’s strategic direction and operational initiatives. He also developed the Industrial Fiber Product division at Avago Technologies Inc., and drove the product development and manufacturing of photonic products in the Optical Networking division of Agilent Inc.

“Since its foundation, Firecomms has opened new markets and developed highly innovative new products for plastic optical fiber,” comments Chia.

Chia’s immediate focus will be on China, where Firecomms has recently expanded its business (via a facility in Tongxiang), and in accelerating the release of innovative new products currently in the pipeline. These products will include the firm’s recently announced new Gigabit transceiver (which is claimed to be a first for the POF industry) for coupling into POF and large-core silica fibers.
