The company also has an eye on a more commercial niche market: computer networking.
Strathconas’ chief executive officer, Brian Schreiber, said the company is also investing in other areas of innovation and that it’s focused on “innovation that’s going to accelerate the business and the economy.”
“The growth opportunities are huge,” Schreib said in an interview.
“I don’t think there’s ever been a better time to be a small business in Canada.”
Strathcom employs more than 5,000 people, including many of its own staff.
Schrebb said the majority of the company’s work comes from remote locations.
The company has been growing steadily since the beginning of the year, while its market value has risen by more than half, reaching $6.5 billion last month, according to data from market research firm KPMG.
The rise in Strathcom’s market value is a testament to the company and its strong business fundamentals, said David Molnar, chief executive of the Canadian Intellectual Property Alliance, a non-profit advocacy group.
The Canadian Intellectual Trade Alliance said in its report last month that Strathcommens has become the world leader in intellectual-property-intensive products.
The value of its portfolio has more than doubled from the beginning, and the company also continues to invest in research and development, with an eye toward commercialization.
Its current products, which range from high speed internet connections to wireless communication, are among the most lucrative for companies like Netflix, according a recent report from the accounting firm Ernst & Young.
Netflix is one of the largest internet streaming services in the world.
Its growth is also helped by a strong reputation for quality.
The business has achieved a “very high level of customer satisfaction,” said Schreber.
Strathecom, founded in 1967, is one the world-renowned names in optical fibre optic technology.
It sells its fiber optics and optical networking technology to a number of companies including Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Toshiba and Alcatel-Lucent.
The world’s leading optical fibre technology company has more patents than any other company in the U.S.
According to the report, Strath com’s portfolio includes more than 1,400 patents and patents related to optical fibre networking technologies, more than a dozen patents for digital signal processing, and more than 40 patents for wireless communication.
A spokesman for StrathCom said the Canadian firm does not comment on the size of its patent portfolio.
Schreiber said Strath commens was founded with the goal of making optical fibre technologies more accessible to people, but the company has also made investments in research, development and commercialization of the technology.
The growing number of products made using Strath’s technology, along with its ability to leverage technology from other companies, has given Strath a huge competitive advantage, he said.
“It’s the fastest-growing industry in Canada,” he said, adding that the company continues to be growing its sales, as well as expanding its distribution network.
“Our strategy is to invest to get to the next level.”
Schreib also said the Strath company is focused on expanding its global footprint, particularly in Asia and Africa, and that its focus is on building and investing in technologies that will be used in future consumer products.
Schriib said the success of Strath is also driven by its ability as a company to manage its growth in different parts of the world, including Canada.
“Strath com is a very good example of a Canadian company that’s able to grow at a very high rate, both globally and domestically,” he added.
“There are very few companies that can grow that fast, and it’s really a case study for what a Canadian business can do.”
Schriebt said that in the future, Strathecom will look to build more manufacturing facilities in the United States, where it is now based.
Schreybets investment in the manufacturing of Strathe’s optical fibre equipment, he added, will allow it to make investments in other sectors.
“We want to get our technology to people that are willing to invest and help grow the industry,” Schreybet said.
Schrieber said Strathe has a plan to invest about $200 million in Canada in 2018, and a plan for the following year to double its investments in the country.
“If we can double our investment in Canada and make it a big player in the global marketplace, that’s huge,” he continued.
“And I think it’s important for our industry to have a global presence.
We’ve had a lot of growth, and
