Bring your wire and cable products to markets across the world

Did You Know?

  • High demand for electrification of homes, increased investment in power distribution, and growth in the household sector in developing countries have all driven huge growth for the power cable segment.
  • Wind turbines and solar systems require significant amounts of wire and cable that must perform under challenging weather conditions and extreme temperatures.
