Cabling specialist expands telecommunications portfolio in Apodaca near Monterrey starting this year and increases number of employees
Augsburg, March 07, 2023 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), an expert in fiber optic connections, cabling solutions and infrastructure services, announces that it will continue its expansion strategy in Mexico in 2023: In addition to an expanded production area at the Apodaca plant, also additional telecommunications products for fiber-to-the-antenna are now being manufactured. In line with the production expansion, the number of employees will also be significantly increased. In parallel, a more efficient supply chain is planned for the benefit of customers, as well as further optimization in materials management.
At the end of 2019, Rosenberger OSI lastly reported on the planned expansion in Mexico. The plant in Apodaca is located close to Monterrey Airport and forms a crucial axis between the USA and Mexico City. The focus of the North American site is on the production of rugged cabling solutions in the telecommunications segment.
New production area for more rugged cabling systems for telecommunications
The site, which covers a total area of 15,000 m2, has until now comprised two sections, in which Rosenberger manufactured the corresponding fiber optic products on 4,000 m2 (area A) on the one hand, and produced solutions for the automotive industry on 7,000 m2 (area C) on the other. Now, the smaller area is to be expanded by an additional 4,000 m2 (area B) in order to be able to go into production at the end of the first quarter. In the new section, mainly hybrid cables in any design or size (number of fibers / number of power contacts / cross-section sizes) will be produced. This includes trunks and jumpers in which both fiber optic and copper conductors are combined.
