Fortune 500-company General Cable, which is headquartered in Kentucky, in the US, reports that it is well-positioned as a provider of comprehensive solutions to the growing offshore wind and solar power markets.

“With the ever-increasing desire for energy independence and security, mandates for alternative energy sources and concerns about the environment, renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power, along with nuclear energy, will see increasing investment,” the company states.

General Cable adds that the world and its markets are changing, prompting the company to focus on research and development and investment in developing wire and cable solutions that meet the challenges facing its customers.

“In working together and using all the ingenuity and creativity we have, we will reach the goal of being the preeminent supplier of wire and cabling solutions in the industry, both with green constructions, as well as designs for the ever-growing renewable energy market,” it states.

General Cable develops, designs, manufactures, markets and distributes copper, aluminium and fibre-optic wire and cable products for the energy, industrial, specialty and communications markets around the world.

The company has a marketing and sales arm in Johannesburg.

Using the Zamefa plant, in Zambia, the Phoenix plant, in Durban, and the company’s other 45 manufacturing plants, it services client requirements within the sub-Saharan Africa region.
