Siemon Celebrates 110 Years of Leadership and US Manufacturing

By News Release | July 08, 2013

Siemon, a five-generation family-owned and -operated business, celebrates 110 years of technology leadership and dedication to US-based manufacturing. Founded in 1903 in Connecticut on the strength of founder Carl F. Siemon’s hardened plastic compounds and pioneering telecommunications technologies, Siemon has kept the roots of its manufacturing in the US.

Located in Watertown, Conn., Siemon’s Global Manufacturing Headquarters was among the first manufacturers of its kind to achieve ISO:9001 and ISO:14001 certification, underscoring the company’s commitment to product quality and environmental stewardship. The US facility’s advanced metal stamping, tooling, injection molding, and sheet metal-forming capabilities create the components that feed its highly-automated assembly operation. That, combined with an industry-leading R&D lab and engineering team that utilizes cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing for rapid prototyping, allows the company to take its products from new ideas to finished goods, on site. Siemon manufactures a broad range of fiber and copper network connectivity and cable management products under strict quality standards and process controls, a capability that produces the highest product quality, performance, and consistency.

Siemon has a local presence in 38 countries, including a global network of certified installers, distributors, and logistic centers servicing customers in more than 100 countries, all backed by a worldwide team of technical and sales support experts. In recent years, the company has reinforced its emphasis on supporting channel partners and customers with new capabilities and services such as dedicated inside sales representatives; the Standards Informant website to deliver up-to-date information on industry standards; and the online Contractor Pitstop resource, which provides news and information focused on helping Siemon’s contractor partners grow their businesses.

Additionally, Siemon is now 179% carbon-negative across its operations with zero-landfill status—all made possible through the use of lean solar energy, 99% waste elimination initiatives, employee incentives, and its award-winning sustainable 3,000-acre Branch Hill Tree Farm. As part of that commitment, Siemon continues to develop energy-efficient data center solutions and ConvergeIT Intelligent Building systems for improved efficiency and sustainability across a variety of markets and applications.
