Prysmian Group has just signed a deal for its Draka branded UC Connect System Approved Installer Programme with Redstone – the UK’s leading provider of network based end to end managed solutions.

The UC Connect concept was launched by Draka in 2012 to provide network cabling installers with access not only to Draka’s market-leading products but also to a full training and support programme and the reassurance of a 25-year systems warranty:  a combination that provides a compelling competitive advantage.

Redstone is regularly entrusted with data centre fit out projects from some of the world’s leading financial organisations and is pleased to enter into partnership with a high-status brand.

“We have used Draka products before” says Matt Salter, Redstone Project Delivery Director, “and were delighted to find the full range of data cabling products being actively promoted in the UK.  We were looking for a partner with impeccable technical back-up, strength of product range and on-going support.  Draka fufills this requirement.” 

Since the deal was signed in October, Draka has provided on-site training for the Redstone design staff as well as the installation team.  The training is part of the UC Connect Programme.  It is designed to ensure that all parties are familiar not only with the market leading products manufactured by Draka, but any new and developing standards that may reduce the potential for costly design and installation errors.

Lee Stokes, Business Development Manager for UC Connect is delighted with the partnership. “The UC Connect Approved Installer Programme is proving very attractive to installers.   To have signed such a significant partner so soon after its introduction into the UK is a major coup and we are delighted to be working with Redstone.”

Adrian Austin, UK Sales Manager for Draka Comteq comments: “Prysmian Group continues to develop and invest heavily in Systems Solutions.  This, combined with our diversity of product range and our global position as the world’s largest cable producer will ensure that Redstone has access to our latest technologies and class leading service levels.”
