Leviton Brings QuickPort® Wallplate Manufacturing Back To The United States

BOTHELL, Wash., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today announced it is transferring the manufacturing processes of its popular QuickPort ® datacom wallplates product line to the United States. Beginning now through early-2013, production will transition from Leviton's manufacturing plant in China to Leviton's Network Solutions plant in Bothell, Washington.

The move of QuickPort production back to Bothell comes as part of Leviton's effort to reduce waste from shipping, boost efficiency and bring manufacturing closer to Government and commercial projects in United States, all while improving product availability. The wallplates will be made using state-of-the-art technology including new high-efficiency molding machinery with dramatically lower energy consumption relative to traditional processes. For more than 25 years, the Bothell facility has manufactured copper and fiber optic network connectivity and power distribution units for enterprise, data center and other commercial markets around the globe.

"By bringing the production of QuickPort wallplates back to our Bothell plant, we are able to improve energy efficiency, streamline our supply chain and ensure greater quality and delivery for customers around the world," said Tim Lockard, director of operations for Network Solutions. "This move further demonstrates Leviton's commitment to supporting the resurgence of manufacturing production in the United States."

As part of the Leviton QuickPort system of mix-and-match connectors, wallplates and patch panels, the datacom wallplates accept a wide selection of QuickPort voice, data and audio connectors. The wallplates are available in one- to 12-port options, single-gang and dual-gang sizes, larger midway sizes and a variety of colors. For more information on the QuickPort wallplates and the QuickPort system, go to Leviton.com/QuickPort.
