Leviton | January 06, 2023
Leader in electrical, lighting, and networking systems, Leviton, has made significant headway in its five-year, $80 million worldwide capital investment plan for its Network Solutions vertical.
Leviton's investment in the Network Solutions business unit will solidify its $202 million acquisition of Berk-Tek in 2020, will increase its production capacity worldwide, and establish Leviton as one of the leading end-to-end makers of copper and fiber network infrastructure systems.
The new expansion project of the Leviton fiber optic cabling manufacturing facility in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, makes up a sizeable chunk of the investment strategy. Construction of the project began in December 2022. Once finished in 2024, the facility will be equipped to support single mode cables, made-to-order fiber optic cable assemblies and long-term growth of multimode cables.
In addition to this vast expansion, Leviton has implemented the following key advancements:
Leviton's ATLAS-X1TM and EXTREMETM solutions have grown globally. Indeed, that doubled capacity in 2021 to meet worldwide demand.
Additionally, Leviton added state-of-the-art technology at its Glenrothes (Scotland) manufacturing facility to improve capacity and deliver a uniform global specification for Category 6A cabling.
Installing the optical fiber cable in the second quarter of last year, Leviton armored in sales support of this rapidly growing product line, including pre-terminated data center solutions in its NC factory.
Leviton designs innovative products across multiple industries, including electrical, lighting, and networking, to improve people's lives in several ways. Isidor Leviton immigrated from Russia to the United States in 1906, started a modest tinsmithing business, and founded Leviton, promising to remain committed to thinking and growing, innovative in creating new products, dedicated to giving safer life to communities throughout the world and adhere to UL standards in producing high-quality products.
