Rosenberger OSI expands to North America and opens production site in Mexico


Cabling specialist founds new location in Apodaca and consistently continues course for growth

Augsburg, February 19, 2019 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative fiber optic cabling infrastructures in Europe, announces that a third production site has been established in the Monterrey region of Mexico. In addition to the existing locations in Germany and Hungary - Augsburg and Taksony - the company's high-quality cabling solutions will also be manufactured in Apodaca. Thanks to its proximity to the North American sales market, the cabling specialist hopes to shorten the distance to the end customer and increase availability while simultaneously reducing logistics costs. The development of Rosenberger OSI's products and solutions will remain at the company's headquarters in Augsburg.

"With the development of the new location in Mexico, we are continuing our course for growth and our sustained support for revenue growth," says Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of Rosenberger OSI. In the new 4,000 m2 plant in Apodaca, several production lines are gradually being set up which are designed for a total capacity of three million assemblies.


Proximity to the customer and optimized project support

In line with the slogan "Flexible and fast", Rosenberger OSI can now supply its North American customers even faster. "The opening of the site in Mexico will bring us closer to our customers, which will enable us to highlight our cabling know-how locally even better," says Schmidt.

Focus on telecommunications - data center solutions to follow

The focus of the new location is on the production of robust cabling solutions in the telecommunications segment. Datacenter solutions are also to be continually established on the North American market. Rosenberger OSI is relying on a broad portfolio of fiber optic and copper cabling systems.

Doubling production output as a declared goal

Rosenberger OSI is investing three million euros in the establishment and development of the new production site, which will employ up to 350 people. With regard to the future and the economic development in the region, the managing director is optimistic: "Our long-term goal is to double the production capacity to serve the North American data center and building cabling market," says the managing director.
