CommScope has announced plans to expand its manufacturing facilities in North Carolina. The network connectivity company will invest $60.3 million into the project to increase production capacity over the next four years, creating 250 new jobs in the process. Currently, CommScope can produce 2 billion feet of cable per year, and these expansions will allow the company to help provide connectivity for underserved American as a part of the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program.
In a recent quote, Chuck Treadway, president and CEO of CommScope, said, “Broadband for everyone is no longer a luxury, but rather a critical necessity to participate in today’s society and economic market. We have long been committed to supplying our partners with the solutions necessary to bring broadband to everyone. Furthering our long-standing relationship with the State of North Carolina is a great next step to bring ‘Internet For All’, and we are thrilled to work with the State on this endeavor. This partnership not only contributes to the economic prosperity of Catawba County but also furthers our commitment to meet the objectives of the BEAD program. This exciting expansion continues to shine a spotlight on Catawba County and North Carolina as the hub that supplies the nation with fiber cable.”
