Leviton today announced the acquisition of Brand-Rex Ltd., a developer of cabling systems for network infrastructure and high-performance industrial applications. Brand-Rex will provide cabling to complement Leviton’s connectivity solutions in Europe, the Middle East, Mexico, Latin America and Asia. Over time, Leviton said it will “use this new expanded geographic presence and logistics infrastructure to offer a range of Leviton products in these markets.”
Brand-Rex will join the Leviton Network Solutions division and will continue to be managed by Martin Hanchard, reporting directly to Ross Goldman, who heads up the division. Leviton and Brand-Rex will maintain their separate sales and distribution channels, as well as existing manufacturing operations.
