R&M, an active developer and supplier of high-quality network infrastructures, today announced the opening of its new U.S. East Coast office and production site in Elkridge, Maryland.
The opening of the R&M facility in Elkridge follows R&M’s acquisition of Elkridge-based Optimum Fiberoptics Inc. in 2019. The Optimum Fiberoptics acquisition and the new Elkridge office and production site 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. With the addition of the Elkridge team and production site, R&M now has complete East Coast and West Coast office and production hubs to serve customers throughout the United States.
“R&M’s new office and production site in Elkridge will bring a new level of service to our Eastern, Southern and Midwestern customers, while maintaining 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.”
