R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is quickly integrating the Transportkabel DIXI a.s., acquired in May 2018, into the corporate group. The fiber optic cable manufacturer was renamed on August 1st and is now called Reichle & De-Massari Czech Republic a.s.

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

With the DIXI acquisition, R&M has acquired great expertise in fiber-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 meter and fiber 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», says Andreas Rüsseler, Chief Marketing Officer at R&M.

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

Special cables which fulfill 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. www.rdm-czech.com
