January 12, 2018 — Nexans has acquired a controlling interest in BE CableCon, a Denmark-based manufacturer and supplier of cable kits for wind turbine companies.
BE CableCon’s kitting range covers low voltage and medium voltage applications including connectors, pre-connected and pre-assembled cable kits, and customized packing for complete ready-to-install kits.
Nexans says the acquisition is an illustration of its “Paced for Growth” strategy, aimed at developing the company’s business beyond manufacturing cables to provide customers with fully-integrated cable services.
“Joining the Nexans Group with its expertise in cable production and global footprint will provide the ideal platform to take our business to the next level. We look forward to expanding beyond Northern Europe to work with global OEMs as well as addressing new markets in the North American and Asia-Pacific regions,” said Klaus Moller, CEO, BE CableCon.
