There’s a saying that ‘things get better with age’ and we like to think exactly that about our business here in Manchester. There’s been a cable making plant on our site since 1895, when the Connolly Brothers of Blackley first established their business. Even in those early days the quest to produce innovative, high quality cables was evident. In fact, historical records show industry plaudits for their ‘special leads for ship lighting’ only 5 years after the first liner crossed the Atlantic!
Of course, few people today would remember that, but most would recall one of the most prolific brands in our industry, BICC Cables. Our business became BICC Cables in 1959 and in many ways that energised the growth of the business to become one of the largest specialist cable manufacturers in the UK. Fast forward to 2019 and here we are as the British Cables Company, now part of the highly respected Wilms Group, the biggest cable group in Europe. Whist our name is still relatively new, many people will recognise our factory in Blackley as one of the most respected cable manufacturing locations in Europe. Our longevity brings invaluable experience and capability, resulting in the operation evolving into a world-class facility.
We are proud of the fact that our cables are utilised in just about every industry sector and type of application. You will find our products being specified for Telecommunications, Railway Infrastructure, Data Networks, Building Management Systems and critical performance areas like Security Systems. Take a look at our website www.britishcablescompany.com and you’ll quickly see that we have an impressive product line up and regular updates on our stock lists.
