Very little would happen in New Zealand without the
products and cable solutions provided by General Cable. From
fuse wire to 33kV power cable, the General Cable range includes
everything from building wires to low and medium voltage XLPE
and paper-insulated lead sheathed distribution cable, and bare
aluminium aerial distribution wire.
General Cable has become a preferred supplier to many of New
Zealand’s energy companies, major industrial users, electrical
wholesaler groups and contractors due to its expertise in
designing and manufacturing for local conditions. The company
has developed a number of efficiencies for energy clients
including improved inventory management, a cut-length service
and 24-hour emergency support.
This has allowed General Cable clients in the main centres to
reduce cable holding costs for both high volume and strategic
cable requirements, and to provide the fastest possible response
for maintenance and fault work. General Cable continues to
provide full technical support, direct supply-to-site and
improved supply chain management.
The cabling requirements for some of New Zealand’s most
important developments, including the massive Clyde Dam power
station, Marsden Point oil refinery and the Methanex
gas-to-methanol plant in Taranaki, have been supplied by General
Cable New Zealand. The company’s cables can be found under
residential subdivisions, in timber mills, offices, coal mines
and at ski fields, and even beneath the sea floor.
General Cable offers a complete and comprehensive range of
products and accessories, and is well known for its willingness
to offer on-site design expertise as part of a total cable
