Swiss cabling specialist Reichle & De-Massari AG (R&M) has announced the acquisition of Realm Communications Group, a North American fiber-optic specialist based in Milpitas, California.
Founded in 1987, Realm develops and supplies advanced fiber management products for direct current, wireless antenna systems, enterprise networks and Silicon Valley’s original equipment manufacturers (OEMs.)
“The acquisition of Realm gives R&M access to the world’s most important network cabling market, allowing us to serve customers on each continent with high-end network solutions for the LAN, DC and Public Network markets,” says Michel Riva, CEO of R&M.
He continued: “We are very excited about the new growth opportunities with this geographical expansion. Realm is not only providing us with complementary technology but will also give us access to high end-customers in the strongly growing North American Data Center market.”
Realm produces customized, high-quality cabling. The offerings from Realm and R&M are complimentary and offer an extended product portfolio for their new customers.
John Russell, Founder of Realm, said: “Over the last 28 years, we have built excellent customer relationships through our expertise in fiber-optic technology and our ability to react swiftly to customer needs. We are thrilled to become a part of R&M’s global organization. Together we can accelerate our growth and take the company to the next level.”
