Nexans North America is investing $15 Million into the expansion of its low voltage facility in Fergus, Ontario.
The expanded area will be 13,000m² (140,000 ft²) with several upgrades to the logistical technology and manufacturing processes. As part of this expansion; Nexans divested of its Milton, Ontario, distribution facility and are expanding Fergus to allow the company to streamline its logistics, thereby enhancing capabilities. In addition, the company is making significant investments into new equipment to increase the capacity in the manufacturing of low voltage residential, commercial, and industrial cables.
“This investment helps us to provide the level of service all customers expect, and deserve,” says Dave Hawker, vice president and general manager, Energy Division, North America. “We are focused on improving our turnaround time, order fill rate as well as the other value-added services we offer such as parallel reels, pulling eyes and custom cutting lengths. In addition, we are fortunate to have strong relationships with distributors in the North American market and as the demand for our products continues to grow, we need to invest in new equipment to have the capacity to respond to this demand.”
