24 January 2018, Glenrothes, UK — Leviton announced today that its Brand-Rex subsidiary will change its name to Leviton. A manufacturer of network cable infrastructure for Europe, the Middle East and Asia, Brand-Rex has been a part of the Leviton Network Solutions division since it was acquired in 2015. With the full integration of the organisation, products, and strategic direction, this change provides customers with a more seamless message and experience.
"Both Leviton and Brand-Rex are recognised leaders in fibre and copper network infrastructure, and now we are one business and one brand with global capabilities," said Ross Goldman, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Leviton Network Solutions. "This integration allows us to provide a more consistent customer experience. As an example, Leviton's popular eXtreme®, Atlas-X1™, QuickPort®, HDX and e2XHD products are now in stock and available throughout Europe."
Leviton also manufactures high performance specialty wire for military, rail, automotive, and aerospace applications at its Leigh, England factory, and these solutions will retain the Brand-Rex name as a product family identifier.
"Over the past two years under Leviton, Brand-Rex accelerated its pace of innovation and made significant investments, and now as Leviton we manufacture a complete range of end-to-end systems." said Ian Wilkie, Managing Director of the Leviton Network Solutions European headquarters. "The website, product documentation and packaging will change as we continue to progress as part of Leviton."
As an example of the investments mentioned above, in late 2017, Leviton opened a new Data Centre Factory at its Network Solutions European headquarters in Glenrothes, Scotland that makes custom configurable pre-terminated cables and cassettes. These solutions combine US-made connectivity with UK-made cables, giving data centre managers throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia customised cabling solutions with rapid delivery service.
The new 2018 Leviton Network Solutions European catalogue contains a fully integrated product offering. The English language version is available electronically at catalogs.leviton.com, and the catalogue will be available in multiple languages in early 2018.
