BETHESDA, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) - Transition Networks, the switching and conversion technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc.

The new facility will initially provide support for returns, repairs and other reverse logistics needs. Transition Networks will now be able to quickly provide localized stock, more rapid product delivery and faster repair times to its European customers. The new facility will also allow Transition Networks to provide the same comprehensive level of service and customer support available in North America to its growing distribution channel and their end customers in the European market. Technical support will be available 24/7/365, just as it is in North America, but by support engineers based in the UK.

"As the deployment of our fibre optic products grows, we need to bring our service and support capabilities closer to the customers in Europe," said Director of Sales and Operations for EMEA, Dirk Steinkampf. "Transition Networks is known throughout the world as a leader in performance, quality and support for its products and this is an important step to deliver these capabilities directly to our European distributors and customers."
