In general, it was an above average year for Cable Solutions, and we owe some of our 2017 success to streamlining the company and setting new targets in Q4 of the previous year.
Cable Solutions made significant developments in its range of in-stock products, holding a larger and more extensive range of electrical, optical and hybrid cables for same day local delivery or fast-track global delivery. Cable is cut to individual customer lengths and spooled to a cable drum for immediate despatch from our warehouse. Cable Solutions provide European, Far-East and US specified and manufactured wire and cable products from stock for the oil & gas, subsea, ship building and renewable energy industry. We also supply electronic, power, instrument and control wire and cable from the leading manufacturers within the cable industry.
Developing the companies brand, web presence and piloting an e-marketing strategy helped Cable Solutions engage with a wider audience, building its profile and reputation in new markets and key countries.
Extension to Distributor Agreement: In January 2017, Cable Solutions signed an extension to an existing distributor agreement with USA based company Nexans Amercable, covering the UK, Europe and Scandinavia.
Record QTR Top Drive Service Loops: In March 2017, Cable Solutions recorded their best ever figures for QTR 1 - 2017 on Top Drive Service Loops and Connectorised Assemblies.

AmerLink™ Product Launch: In August 2017, Nexans AmerCable - Cable Solutions launched its new category in Top Drive Services Loops, the AmerLink™. The next-gen top drive service loops provide a technological innovation that drilling has needed for long time. AmerLink™ “jacketed” loops have a mould-cured outer jacket and are lighter, more flexible, smaller and have a significantly longer service life over the traditional hose-encased design.
New HQ Offices and Warehouse: In December 2017, Cable Solutions purchased a new building in Inverurie, and contracted Tinto Architecture Ltd to space plan the interior with purpose built offices, warehouse, storage and reception. Q2 in 2018 is projected for moving to the new facility.
