Manufacturing Capabilities

Connectix has grown organically since formation in 1993 and now has one of the largest UK manufacturing, production and distribution facilities to the structured cabling market in the UK. Clients are openly invited to our head office and site factory in Essex which provides an insight into mechanical and electrical design and development, cable production and manufacturing, testing and QA and our customisation printing plant.

As a respected and reputable manufacturer, Connectix is in control of its design and development to enable new products to be developed quickly on plastic modelling print machinery or metal fabrication equipment.  Prototypes can then be tested for performance mechanically and electrically before mass production begins.

Our copper cabling is manufactured in partnership with BT Cables and are held at their 28-acre site facility in Manchester.  Our partnership with BT Cables gives our Approved Installers and end clients complete transparency and confidence of our commitment to quality manufactured copper cables. As part of Connectix copper cabling system testing we subject our components to individual RJ45 port testing (on every outlet and every patch panel), IDC socket insertion testing, patch cord continuity test and cable NEXT and Return Loss network analyser inspection.  Connectix copper cabling systems product feature add-ons include;
