Our Story

Our Mission

Provide the industry with superior fiber optic products and educational information.

Supported by only the highest trained technicians. Every day we come to work with the idea of using our expertise to help people make more informed decisions. Let’s face it. At times the fiber optic business can be tricky. Our goal is to make information available so that product purchasing is done efficiently, economically and at less expense for our partners.

The Beginning - an Emphasis on Education

Fiber Instrument Sales was founded by Frank Giotto in 1985. In Upstate New York where we still are today. After all this is home. Frank felt there was a need for a company that not only distributed fiber optic product but one that was educated and fully understood the industry. That’s why over 90% of our people have completed our extensive Fiber Optics I and II Training Program. This program has been offered to the public for over 23 years and has trained over 10,000 people during that time. Our customers depend on our fiber optic expertise. That’s why training is always ongoing here at FIS.
