February 26, 2007 -- ADC announced that it is opening a new manufacturing facility in Lexington, South Carolina.

According to the company, located near Columbia, SC, the leased facility will manufacture cable-intensive fiber connectivity products for service provider customers that deploy FTTX services throughout the Eastern region of the United States.

ADC will move into the current 10,000 square foot facility in March, with plans to expand to 20,000 square feet later this year. By the end of 2007, the company says it could employ up to 65 people at the new facility.

"The Lexington site provides a more central location to better serve our East Coast customers as they deliver voice, video and data services to homes and businesses," comments Pat O'Brien, president of ADC's global connectivity solutions unit. "We expect significant benefits from this location and are pleased to be part of this supportive environment."

"We are excited that ADC made the decision to expand into Lexington County," adds Billy Derrick, chairman of the Lexington County Council. "This commitment from ADC is another positive example of what can happen when we work together. I am proud to welcome them into our corporate family."
