R&M integrates Czech acquisition

R&M, a Switzerland-headquartered producer of products and systems for communication and data networks, is integrating Czech company Transportkabel DIXI a.s into its business.

The group is currently transferring the DIXI portfolio (acquired in May 2018) into its global sales and production network. R&M uses the cables from the Czech plant in particular to extend and optimise its own products. They can, for example, be used for manufacturing assemblies and pre-terminated cables.

With the DIXI acquisition, R&M has acquired expertise in fibre-optic technology. The Czech plant develops innovative cable constructions. It can excellently address individual customer needs and requirements and, in particular, excels in manufacturing short to medium-length cables. "We can now provide our customers with cables by the metre and fibre-optic assemblies even more flexibly than before. Apart from that we can focus more on developing project- or customer-specific cable constructions together with our customers and partners," said Andreas Rüsseler, Chief Marketing Officer at R&M.

The plant in Děčín, Czech Republic, mainly produces loose tube cables with singlemode and multimode fibres. The portfolio of standard cable constructions offers cables with up to 216 fibres. The range includes cables for the application areas LAN and data centre cabling as well as fibre to the home and access networks.

Special cables which fulfil the requirements of the highest fire classes are one of the specialties of the new R&M subsidiary as are cables featuring increased protection against mechanical damage when laid directly in the ground.
