Leviton opens new data centre factory
The new data centre factory incorporates the latest equipment and processes modelled on the company's successful US-based factories.

Leviton has opened a new data centre factory at its Glenrothes facility in Scotland to support businesses in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

According to the company, the data centre factory provides data centre managers with bespoke network infrastructure products, including pre-terminated cabling and cassette solutions, with rapid delivery.

"Field terminations can be the most time consuming, labour intensive process of cable installation in a data centre network,"said Ian Wilkie, managing director of Brand-Rex, a Leviton company. "As data centre systems grow more complex, using pre-terminated infrastructure reduces downtime, labour costs, jobsite waste, and maintenance. When data centre managers can specify the exact length, cable type, breakout length, and fibre count for their network, they can cut installation time by as much as 80%."

Bruno Filio, vice president of Business Development at Leviton, said: "This investment extends our ability to support data centre customers across Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Also, it combines our best US-made connectivity with Brand-Rex European-specific cables for a complete solution, delivered rapidly."

As part of Leviton's broader efforts to meet the demanding requirements of data centre managers throughout the EMEA and Asia, the new factory incorporates the latest equipment and processes modelled on the company's successful US-based factories.
