levitons-80m-investment
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.
