The UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, recognised Brand-Rex as ‘one of the most successful companies in Britain’ and a ‘world-leader’ during his visit last week to the company’s manufacturing plant and headquarters in Glenrothes, Scotland.

On a private visit, Mr Brown was welcomed to the Brand-Rex Glenrothes plant by Sir David Murray, owner of Murray International Holdings, whose private investment arm Murray Capital recently became the major investor in Brand-Rex. “It is a great day for the company having recently won some major contracts, including that of the super carriers – we’re all delighted to see the Prime Minister here,” said Sir David.

Mr Brown also met with Brand-Rex CEO Paul Lines and a number of employees from across the business. Addressing those assembled, Mr Brown said: “Can I say what a privilege it is to come and visit one of the most successful companies in Britain and to thank David and his son [David D Murray] for taking over a company that has got such great technology, is now owned in Scotland, and is selling products at the highest level of technology to the American as well as the British Navy.”

Brand-Rex has won a number of prestigious deals this year, including the £5 million contract to supply fibre-optic cables for two new aircraft carriers being built at nearby Rosyth. Employing 390 people in Scotland, England and within its global sales operation, the company supplies high performance cabling systems to support IT networks for many key sectors including finance, government and education. Many of Brand-Rex’s products are exported throughout Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia.

“You are at the front end of technology [and] you are changing the world by what you do… your product is one that can sell to any part of the world and as you see the global economy develop, it’s those countries that have the technology and that have the quality that are going to succeed. And I’m really proud that here in Fife is a company that is leading the world and will continue to lead the world,” Mr Brown added.



Brand-Rex Ltd is a global operation, designing, developing and manufacturing the most sophisticated, high performance copper and fibre cabling systems for communications and extreme environment applications. Headquartered in Scotland, the company is committed to being a trusted market leading provider of best-in-class communication infrastructure solutions that are truly ‘future proof’.
