Cablel® Hellenic Cables Group
The introduction of new technologies into the production process to develop innovative, better quality environmentally friendly products and provide services of high added value, is an integral element of Cablel® Hellenic Cables Group’s business.
At Cablel® Hellenic Cables Group, we firmly believe that R&D processes, and the introduction of new technologies in the production process, support the creation and maintenance of a competitive advantage. For this reason, we implement significant Group-wide investments directly connected to R&D on an annual basis.
In order to better address R&D demands, the Group invests primarily in its people, recognizing that the quality and expertise of human resources is what essentially contributes to the success of any research effort. As such, the Group’s R&D department is staffed by highly educated specialized scientific personnel. The staff’s participation in educational and lifelong learning programmes is also an integral part of the department’s operation.
Collaboration on a national and international level with internationally acclaimed educational institutions, distinguished research centres and certified laboratories with international prestige are also an integral part of daily R&D activity.
Cablel® Hellenic Cables Group ensures that it is able to leverage any opportunity for participation in expertise transfer groups. A notable example is the Group’s participation in the two-year Tanocomp European Programme. This is an EU funded project within the Life Long Learning Programme implemented through a Joint Venture of the following Partners:
- Steinbeis – Europa – Zentrum
- Aitiip Centro Tecnologico
- Marketmentoro LTD
- Glonatech Global Nanotechnologies
Participation in the project’s activities have led to improved knowledge among the Group’s executives of nanotechnology issues and the preparation of nano synthetic materials for various applications, as well as recognition of the benefits of this particular technology.
The Group’s focus on R&D has led to the creation of a state-of-the-art, advanced polymer laboratory at the Inofyta plant. The Laboratory, among other things, conducts specialized chemical tests related to quality control and insulation analysis (XLPE) for high and extra-high voltage cables (raw materials, production process and evaluation of produced materials) as well as other polymers.
