Research & Development

Planning & Logistics

  Our Research and Development (R&D) department and laboratories are closely involved in corporate strategies and targets. The work carried out by the department is divided into two main areas:

Development of new products and ensuring that they are ready for mass production at the right time while also complying with and taking heed of current and future market requirements. In depth knowledge of the market and the early recognition of newly emerging trends are both vital prerequisites for ensuring that developments are brought in at the right time. The R & D department has a regular exchange of information with all the company's staff, who through their close contact with customers and awareness of market trends, are able to lend their valuable support.

Applying knowledge of raw materials to other fields. For example, the company's business was enhanced and expanded thanks to the development and production of foams and plastic pipes in the 50s. In this way new and divergent areas of business outside the cable sector have been added to the company's activities. To take a more recent example, the deep understanding of the raw materials used in high frequency absorbers has enabled us to develop means of processing these for use in cables, transmission lines, electro compatible absorbers, measuring facilities (TEM test cells) and last but not least microwave absorbers (including microwave dishes).

A dynamic and well managed company has to tackle both of the above areas on a daily basis in order to meet the increasingly complex demands of global markets.

Know-how

In using the term know-how we refer to our ability to process vast quantities of different raw materials in such a way as to produce a high quality product which complies with even the most stringent of standards.

More than 4,000 types of raw material, some 20,000 varieties of cable construction and the daily processing of more than 100 tonnes of copper are testimony to the complexity of manufacturing products of a consistently high quality. Know-how implies mastery of this complex undertaking, and this is by no means easy.

We consider it important that our know-how is preserved, promoted and improved in order to enable us to apply our wide knowledge of physics, chemistry and electrical engineering to new products. With this in mind the customers can always be sure that they have found the right partner to help solve all types of complex problems.
