Founded in 2003 by Ricky Gill and Colin Fraser, Cable Solutions Worldwide has steadily built a reputation as a leading player in the global cable sales market. From the beginning, Cable Solutions Worldwide forged a pivotal partnership with AmerCable and achieved exclusive distributorship status in 2012.

The addition of David Gill in 2005 to head the subsea division marked a significant strategic move, followed by the appointment of John Rickman in 2015 to further strengthen the company’s senior leadership team.

In 2019, the company took another leap forward by moving to a purpose-built facility in Inverurie, a transformation that bolstered cable stock and operational capabilities.

Navigating the challenges of 2020, Cable Solutions demonstrated adaptability by aligning operations with customer needs and embracing a strategic shift towards sustainable energy solutions in 2021.

The year 2022 ushered in a transformative change as Dron & Dickson acquired Cable Solutions, heralding a new chapter for the company.
