Infrastructure solutions manufacturer CommScope has unveiled expanded production capabilities at its Goa, India facility to include high-performance SYSTIMAX cabling.
The company said the expansion comes in response to the growing demand for network infrastructure solutions in the Asia Pacific region. "Manufacturing locally offers a higher service level to the India market and therefore can benefit customers through quicker availability and reduced logistics costs," said David Gilmore, vice president of Global Enterprise Operations, CommScope.
The Goa facility was opened in 1998. The 25,800 sqm facility currently manufactures antenna and transmission cable products for CommScope's wireless business under the Andrew brand. It also includes an integrated warehouse, distribution and customer support centre.
The facility now will produce for the first time CommScope's SYSTIMAX copper cabling, panels and patch cords for its enterprise customers in India, the company said in a recent announcement.
The company also plans to begin manufacturing in Goa its Uniprise cabling.
Another feature included in the expansion is a briefing centre that contains a demonstration area, meeting space and educational vignettes featuring CommScope solutions.
