10th September 2013 | Metsec Cable Management produces cable ladder, tray and trunking solutions for the electrical contracting sector. Jon Hillier, Metsec Cable Management’s Sales Director, explains the recent changes within this division of the UK’s leading cold roll formed steel products manufacturer. Here he looks at what the change means for customers.
Metstrut has recently changed its name to Metsec Cable Management. The shift formalises a move that lends all the positive connotations of the Metsec name to its cable management business. As a trusted brand within the specification sector, Metsec stands for quality, integrity and above all a customer-centric service ethos.
A focus on the superior quality and service, in addition to the company’s enviable corporate responsibility policy and environmental sustainability accreditations, support its position as a reliable and trusted supplier to the market.
Service is a cornerstone of Metsec and as such Cable Management customers will benefit from well-established distribution channels. Thanks to the large stockholding at its Midlands manufacturing site, Metsec Cable Management is able to respond swiftly to large orders, ensuring products are in the right place, at the right time. This means the company is able to support its distributors, helping them to keep their promises to end customers, such as electrical and mechanical contractors.
Such strength of heritage is set to challenge fresher companies looking to enter the cable management market, particularly at the current time when we are seeing little movement in terms of new investment. Meanwhile it also lends scale to the business – supported by the greater financial security of the wider parent company. Metsec is in turn a part of voestalpine, a global steel and metal engineering business. This further enhances the financial reliability, environmental excellence and customer support behind the brand.
Now that Metsec Cable Management has established itself in the market, its future focus lies in product development. Mechanical and electrical and contractors will see innovation in manufacturing, through Metsec’s investment in this division. This in turn will deliver products to the market that respond to identified challenges and requirements within this sector. By evolving its offering, Metsec Cable Management is aiming to inject movement into this market.
