S.I. Tech, an Early Innovator in the Fiber Optics Industry, was formed to develop and market fiber optics systems and has been on the leading edge of this technology since its early years. The founder of S.I. Tech formerly managed Belden Corporation's new venture development in fiber optic systems including fiber optic cables, transmitters, receivers, modems, multiplexers and link developments. The fiber optic systems division of Belden Corporation was acquired by S.I. Tech in 1984. The company started operations as an Illinois Corporation in March of that year.  January 1988 S.I. Tech acquired the fiber optic multiplexer division of Honeywell.

S.I. Tech has developed numerous well-known fiber optic products and application engineering solutions for customers worldwide. These products today are sold and supported on all five continents. They are performing in a wide variety of applications and environments from Alaska to Australia and Hawaii to Japan. "Mission critical" applications everywhere depend on S.I. Tech - from an oil rig in Asia, a factory in Europe or a university in the United States.

OptiPatch, a division of S.I. Tech, was later formed to provide its customer base with quick turn arounds on Fiber Optic Patch Cords, Attenuators, Connectors, Couplers and Adapters. To be close to its global customer base, S.I. Tech and OptiPatch work closely with a select group of distributors, system integrators and other value-added resellers. These extensions of S.I. Tech/OptiPatch are your "local" source for quality products and technical assistance. Our products are marketed worldwide under the Bit-Driver trade name.

S.I. Tech and Optipatch products are proudly manufactured in the USA.
