About Metz Connect

We first discovered METZ CONNECT at a Blustream training course last September and were thrilled when we were invited to be their UK Salesteam.  Structured cabling is becoming an increasingly critical part of any install.  With so many questions around CAT5e, 6, 6A and 7, and with a now current (not future) requirement for bandwidth for streaming services, UHD etc then you need the support of an expert manufacturer. With a $1.5 billion turnover METZ's pedigree is unsurpassed.

Structured cabling is now at the heart of all installs; the homeowner simply wants to watch the source of their choice on the screen of their choice.  The correctly specified cable is integral to that.  METZ CONNECT provides the knowhow and quality that you can rely on and your customer can enjoy.

METZ CONNECT is a family-run German company with technology, innovation and reliability at its heart.  All divisions of the company are managed in a sustainable manner and on the basis of certified quality standards.  Around the world, their products guarantee secure and reliable connections for a smooth flow of information – from the printed circuit board to the infrastructure environment and they have exceptional development and production expertise.
