“The company will make a significant investment into machinery for its new manufacturing plant. By the end of this year there could be approximately 200 people working in the new facility,” commented Tomas Hruda, CEO of CzechInvest.

“Thanks to this project we will lower our overall costs of operation while increasing our production capabilities in Europe to better serve our EMEA-based customers,” said Ross Ferguson, Executive Director of ADC KRONE Manufacturing in Europe. “The Czech Republic is logistically suitable for us in terms of serving our customer base located in key European markets.”

ADC KRONE is a leading manufacturer of network infrastructure equipment such as copper and fiber distribution frames, digital signal cross connects and distribution panels. Ferguson believes that the new plant in Brno could help ADC KRONE increase its share of the European communications market, which in this rapidly developing field is very important.
