Timbercon was founded in January 1997 by Eric Meslow (CEO) and James Davies (COO), and is still privately held and led by Eric and James to this day. Originally named Timberline Connectivity, we first offered copper-related products, then shifted focus to fiber optic solutions in 2000. In 2003, we rebranded and shortened our name to Timbercon.

In 2020, Timbercon was acquired by Radiall, a global company that specializes in interconnect solutions. This step gave Timbercon the opportunity to offer an even more extensive range of products to our customers.

Timbercon’s reputation for custom fiber optic solutions, engineering excellence and award-winning customer service sets us apart from other suppliers.
