CommScope adds Systimax cabling production at Goa, India plant

Aug. 21, 2013
Goa is a prominent location in CommScope’s global manufacturing and distribution network.

To meet growing demand for network infrastructure solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, CommScope has unveiled expanded production capabilities at its Goa, India facility to include the company's high-performance Systimax cabling.

Goa is a prominent location in CommScope’s global manufacturing and distribution network, and its strong manufacturing team and operational excellence are expected to provide benefits for business enterprise customers in India and throughout the region. “Manufacturing locally offers a higher service level to the India market and therefore can benefit customers through quicker availability and reduced logistics costs,” explains David Gilmore, vice president of Global Enterprise Operations, CommScope.

Opened in 1998, the 25,800-square meter Goa 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 center. For the first time, the facility will now produce CommScope’s Systimax copper cabling, panels and patch cords for its enterprise customers in India. The company also plans to begin manufacturing its Uniprise cabling at the Goa facility.

Gilmore adds, “As an industry leader in both wireless RF solutions and enterprise intelligent building and data center solutions, we are proud to expand our capabilities in India and provide a local source to address the growing demand for innovative network infrastructure.”

Another feature included in the Goa facility expansion is a customer briefing center comprised of a demonstration area, meeting space and educational vignettes featuring CommScope's network infrastructure solutions. “We have a history of manufacturing leadership with RF solutions in India, and are excited to add enterprise cabling production to these capabilities,” concludes Gilmore. “The Goa expansion is testament to our commitment to provide customers with the highest quality products and services.”
