Helukabel recently announced two acquisitions to further grow its core competency in the field of industrial automation. The two latest companies to join the Helukabel Group are ekd gelenkrohr GmbH, a drag chain manufacturer, and Sangel Systemtechnik, an industrial cable assembly manufacturer.
For the group, the acquisitions are important steps toward becoming an electrical system and solution provider. As of now, Helukabel is the only company in the world that manufactures both cables and wires as well as energy drag chains. "Our goal is to supply customers not only with individual components, but with complete, pre-assembled and ready-to-use system assemblies," says Helukabel CEO Marc Luksch. "This means that the end-users have less work to do and can turn to one contact partner for all their questions related to connection technology."
These new additions, combined with Helukabel’s existing strengths in cable manufacturing and robotic protection systems engineering via its Robotec Systems subsidiary, enable it to broaden its international activities in automation cable system technology.
