Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, has opened a new plant for the production of optical fibre cable in Slatina, Romania, which has become one of the centres of excellence in Europe for the optical communications cables industry.

The Slatina factory celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, having started its manufacturing activity in 1973 with production of energy cables, while in 2009 it introduced the first module for the production of optical fibre cables. The factory boasts a significant number of Quality Certifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, IMQ, and the new plant will triple its production, from 500,000 kilometers up to 1.5 million kilometres of cables per year, with the potential of reaching 3 million.

"The investment in the new facility in Slatina is part of a major plan to further reinforce the Group's competitiveness in this fast-changing market" said Valerio Battista, CEO Prysmian Group. "Many developments are taking place in the current telecoms market. New players and services are appearing and evolution in broadband, double-play and triple-play services is dynamic. For this reason, as one of the major players in the telecom cable industry, Prysmian Group is continuously investing in this strategic sector in order to offer innovative technological solutions for the development of telecoms networks."

The Slatina plant stretches across almost 100.000m2, with a covered area of around 42,000m2. This will create a total yearly production capacity of 30,000 tons of energy cable (from High Voltage cables up to 110kV and building wires, to Power and Instrumentation & Control cables), almost 1,500,000 km of optical cable and 500,000 km of copper telecom cable (covering almost all possible demand for both optical fibre and copper telecom cables types), employing over 400 people.

Prysmian Group is global market leader in communication cable manufacturing, with 11% market share and 24 production facilities worldwide. Investment in new production facilities and technology for product and service innovation will help the Group support operators in the development of a modern telecoms network, with the aim to share information everywhere through faster, flexible and cost-effective deployments.
