News and Business

The EMEA and APAC team of Precision OT, a US-based optical solutions provider, is moving to a new regional headquarters, in Swindon, UK, extending the size of its footprint to meet surging international demand for optical networking equipment and engineering expertise. The facility will feature an expanded production area and an upgraded test lab to support the company’s team of in-house engineers in developing solutions that will help network operators reduce costs and future-proof their networks. The company is also doubling its EMEA workforce with plans to triple it by the end of the year. Precision OT recently expanded into a new, 43,000 square foot facility in Rochester, New York

“Precision OT has had a presence in the region for quite some time, but the pace of our growth means that we have simply outgrown our original facility and are looking to add more engineering and production talent,” says Rob Harrison, Vice President of EMEA and APAC. “We’ve invested heavily in customising our new headquarters, outfitting it with state-of-the-art technology and systems that will greatly expand our production capability, making it easier and faster for us to meet our customers’ specialised requirements and tight timelines. Swindon is really the heart of technology and distribution outside the London area, with large shipping hubs nearby. This is a great move for our team and our customers.”

Precision OT recently joined the Independent Networks Cooperative Association (INCA), a UK-based institution uniting network operators and other applicable organisations in creating a competitive digital infrastructure market for the country. Around 100 FTTH providers belong to INCA, many of whom are Precision OT’s customers.
