To meet the growing demand for network infrastructure solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, CommScope unveiled expanded production capabilities at Goa to include high-performance SYSTIMAX cabling.
Opened in 1998, the 25,800-square meter 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. The facility now will produce for the first time 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.
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,” says David Gilmore, Vice President of Global Enterprise Operations, CommScope. “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 expansion is a briefing center that contains a demonstration area, meeting space and educational vignettes featuring CommScope solutions. This 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.
“We have a history of manufacturing leadership with RF solutions in India and are excited to add enterprise cabling production to these capabilities,” says Gilmore. “The Goa expansion is testament to our commitment to provide customers with the highest quality products and services.”
