Berk-Tek enters alliance with Leviton
Berk-Tek, a Nexans company, and Leviton announced that the two companies have entered a long-term strategic agreement, creating the Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies (BLT) alliance, which they noted will be a far-reaching initiative.
A press release said that the alliance of the two U.S.-based companies will combine the "strength of Leviton's extensive connectivity portfolio with the leading performance of Berk-Tek's cables" to create a premier copper and fiber solution that provides customers with a best-of-breed option for reliable and high-performance networks. The alliance, it said, "extends beyond marketing to include product development and manufacturing as well as joint sales and support. Both companies are leaders in copper and fiber networks for data centers, healthcare, financial, government and enterprise applications." It noted that BLT projects are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and supported through an integrated contractor program.
The combined Berk-Tek and Leviton expertise "will deliver the highest performance, pre-terminated copper and optical fiber solutions for data centers, capitalizing on both firms' well-known capabilities," the release said. The scope of the alliance will include the U.S. and Canada as well as global customers that demand consistent network performance across all their networks, it said.
"We are pleased to align with Leviton, whose enterprise and data center solutions combined with their expanded global reach allow us to provide exceptional value to our customers and channel partners," stated Paul Trunk, president of Berk-Tek and vice president and general manager of the Nexans LAN Division North America.
"This agreement truly offers customers the highest level of service and return on investment in the industry," said Ross Goldman, vice president and general manager of Leviton Network Solutions.
