CommScope will produce Systimax and Uniprise cabling at its Goa facility in India.
The inclusion of Systimax cabling products is part of CommScope strategy to strengthen its presence in the Asia Pacific market.
The strategy to manufacture in India will assist CommScope to connect better with Indian clients.
The 25,800-square meter facility currently manufactures antenna and transmission cable products for CommScope’s wireless business under the Andrew brand.
It includes an integrated warehouse, distribution and customer support center. The facility will produce CommScope’s Systimax copper cabling, panels and patch cords for its enterprise customers in India.
The company also plans to begin manufacturing in Goa its Uniprise cabling.
“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.
CommScope’s Goa facility will have a briefing center with demonstration area, meeting space and educational vignettes featuring CommScope solutions.
The company says the briefing center will be an important part of the customer experience during visits to the facility and in understanding how CommScope can address their organization’s network infrastructure needs.
