A pure player in electrification and pioneer in the energy transition

Stretching back to the late 19th century, we have always played a key role in electrification.

Our cables are essential for all types of electrical transmission, meeting the needs of big cities as well as contributing to the development of remote villages. So, it is only natural for us to be leading the way towards an all-electric future and contributing to the general effort through our vision and innovations.

Our strategy is to set new standards in safety and sustainability for the future as part of a rational approach. We want to lay the foundations of a world that shows greater concern for both the environment and for people.

Our goal: to become the leading pure player in electrification

Changing course

In 2018, we made a strategic shift in our approach to refocus on what we do best: electrifying the world.

Intervening throughout the chain

We play an essential role in operationalizing the various links in the electrification chain, from power generation to transmission, distribution and usage. Present in over 40 countries, we prefer local sourcing for local markets.

Paving the way

We have always been committed to electrifying the world. Thanks to our unique management model, we are agents of change. We are paving the way for economic performance to be intrinsically linked to the environment and human commitment.

Our strategy Rationalization to drive performance

We have replaced volume and complexity with value creation and simplification.

We have taken a number of steps to streamline our organization and create value:

  • Scaling down from 25 areas of activity to four main business units, and from 17,000 customers to 4,000 strategic customers.
  • Looking beyond cable supplies alone to take up a central market position delivering services and solutions. Through partnerships with our strategic customers, developing new solutions and services tailored to their needs.
  • Continuing to cover the entire electricity value chain, from generation and transmission to distribution and usage. We are a global specialist and market leader at every stage: high voltage, medium voltage and low voltage.

Between now and 2040, demand for electricity is expected to rise by 40%. We have a role to play at the very heart of the electric revolution, supplying renewable and decarbonized energy in an increasingly circular economy.

To this end, we are already supporting major projects, making it possible for wind farms to power megacities such as New York (USA). We are taking all possible steps to promote a new industrial approach, factoring in any potential shortages of raw materials. Today’s copper or aluminum scrap will provide a basis to develop the markets of tomorrow.
