CLFD Clearfield

Clearfield, Inc. manufactures and distributes passive connectivity products. Their fiber management and enclosure platform consolidates, distributes, and protects fiber through inside plant facilities, to outside plant facilities, to the home, and to the drop-off points in between. Clearfield's products service the wireless, cable, and telephone service providers, municipal-owned utilities, and non-traditional providers. Clearfield was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Clearfield’s history began in the late 1980s with the merging of Americable and Computer System Products. Moving forward under the business name Americable, in 2003 the company was purchased by APA Enterprises. In 2007, APA Enterprises changed course after several consecutive years of profit losses. In June 2007, Cheri Beranek took the new role of CEO. Under the new leadership, APA Enterprises redefined itself with a new vision by rebranding the Company as Clearfield at the start of 2008.
