R&M Opens New U.S. East Coast Office, Cabling Production Facility

R&M, an innovative developer and manufacturer of high-quality network infrastructures, celebrated the opening of its new U.S. East Coast office and production facility in Elkridge, Maryland with a virtual open house on June 4.

R&M presented the open house webcast in place of an in-person event to follow COVID-19 social-distancing rules. R&M is planning an in-person open house for later this year after COVID-19 social-distancing rules are relaxed or no longer in effect.

R&M is a global company with over 10 production facilities in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, China, India, and Brazil. We are excited to continue our growth journey with the addition of the Elkridge production facility to provide a new level of service to our customers in the Eastern, Southern and Midwestern United States. With production facilities on the United States East and West Coasts, R&M now has the necessary resources to serve customers throughout the United States, which is by far the largest market for network connectivity and cabling,” said R&M CEO Michel Riva.

The opening of the R&M office and production facility in Elkridge follows R&M’s acquisition of Elkridge-based Optimum Fiberoptics Inc. in 2019. The Optimum Fiberoptics acquisition and the new Elkridge facility mark an important milestone in R&M’s expansion from Switzerland to the United States, which began in 2016 with the acquisition of REALM Communications Group, Inc. in Milpitas, California.

The 10,000-square-foot office and production facility in Elkridge will serve R&M’s existing Eastern, Southern and Midwestern customer base, the fast-growing data center markets in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia, and all military branches with military-grade assemblies such as TFOCA connectors, MIL-DTL-38999 connectors, and AN/MQJ switch box assemblies.

The Elkridge facility can design for any needs and is fully equipped with R&M’s high-quality fiber and copper cabling products, ample production space and equipment to serve customer connectivity requirements including large orders and quick turnaround. Standardized production processes and integrated quality management guarantee the high quality of R&M’s solutions.

“While R&M’s new office and production facility in Elkridge will serve our Eastern, Southern and Midwestern customers, we’ll maintain one line for customer service and technical sales support for customers throughout the United States,” said R&M USA President Christopher Stratas. “The Elkridge facility will enhance our mixture of global and local products for local area networks, data centers and public networks, and our unique ability to provide tailor-made, customized solutions for our customers.”

R&M’s East Coast open house video is available to view here and includes:
• “R&M company introduction,” by R&M CEO Michel Riva
•”The capabilities of R&M’s Elkridge facility,” with a tour by Jay Megan, founder of Optimum Fiberoptics Inc. and business manager at R&M
• “Market trends outlook with a U.S. focus,” by R&M CMO Andreas Ruesseler
• “Integration strategy for Optimum Fiberoptics and R&M’s position in the U.S. market today,” by R&M USA President Christopher Stratas

R&M later will announce and provide details for its in-person East Coast open house event planned for later this year pending the lifting of COVID-19 social-distancing rules.
