Leviton has opened a new Data Centre Factory at its Brand-Rex facility in Glenrothes to help managers save time and money.
The new addition will provide data centre managers with bespoke network infrastructure products, including pre-terminated cabling and cassette solutions, with rapid delivery.
Ian Wilkie, Managing Director of Brand-Rex, a Leviton company, said: “Field terminations can be the most time consuming, labour intensive process of cable installation in a data centre network. As data centre systems grow more complex, using pre-terminated infrastructure reduces downtime, labour costs, jobsite waste, and maintenance.
“When data centre managers can specify the exact length, cable type, breakout length, and fibre count for their network, they can cut installation time by as much as 80%.”

Bruno Filio, Vice President of Business Development, said: “This investment extends our ability to support data centre customers across EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
“Also, it combines our best US-made connectivity with Brand-Rex European-specific cables for a complete solution, delivered rapidly.”
The Data Centre Factory represents significant investment in staff, equipment, and IT systems as part of Leviton’s broader efforts to meet the demanding requirements of data centre managers throughout the EMEA.
It incorporates the latest equipment and processes modelled on Leviton’s successful US-based factories and is said to run on world-class IT systems which allow for rapid delivery of make-to-order (MTO) products.
The product set includes HDX, e2XHD, and HI-DEX cassettes, as well as fibre array cords, and fibre trunks with CPR-rated cables.
