Precision OT Moves to New UK Facility — Doubles Footprint

Precision OT has expanded again, and this time, it’s the EMEA and APAC team who is moving to a new regional headquarters, extending the size of its footprint. The UK-based facility is located in Swindon and will feature an expanded production area and an upgraded test lab to support Precision OT’s team of in-house engineers in developing innovative solutions that can help network operators reduce costs and future-proof their networks.

Why the move and why now?  According to MarketsandMarkets, the global optical networking market will be worth $27.8 billion by 2025 as network operators in Europe, the Middle East and APAC expand their footprints to meet end-user interest for cloud services, IoT solutions, 5G and other bandwidth-intensive services. To stay ahead of surging operator demand, Precision OT’s EMEA and APAC team is not only moving to a new facility but also doubling its EMEA workforce with plans to triple it by the end of the year.

“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 customizing 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’ specialized 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.”

Previous to this expansion, Precision OT also announced its move to a new facility in Rochester, NY, which includes:

  • 43,000 sq. ft. of stand-alone space 
  • Outfitted precisely to meet its specialized needs as a network equipment manufacturer 
  • Expanded and customized lab space
