About Ofns


Optical Fibre Network Services was set up in November 2005 by Celestino (Charlie) Marenghi, who has put his 25 years plus of knowledge and experience in the Communications and Electrical Industry to build a specialised implementation company with the nationwide resources to offer full, impartial and comprehensive technical support. The Company ethos is to provide expertise wherever and whenever it is required and to ensure quality at all times and it now provides a broad range of installation services that adapt to meet the needs of any project. By delivering a complete service, OFNS’s proactive friendly approach to business and specialised knowledge helps us to exceed our customer’s expectations.


Over the last six years, OFNS has established itself as one of the UK’s leading expert installation service providers commissioning hundreds of ANPR and CCTV cameras, and also implementing the communications infrastructures, including the fibre and wireless networks, necessary to support the projects. We have provided full turn-key solutions to many of the UK Police Forces, along with Central Government Agencies, Local Authorities and private sector organisations alike.

Our expertise in ANPR and CCTV as well as Electrical and Civil Engineering is reinforced by our commitment to building stable, long lasting relationships with skilled supply chain partners, ensuring that we can always provide the flexibility, expertise, reliability and quality that you demand. We supply the project management, labour, plant and materials on all our projects, enabling us to provide our clients with an economical approach to each and every installation.
