Since the first publication back in 2005 there have been a few changes to our organisation. Our name has changed from Pirelli to Prysmian and, following our recent acquisition of Draka, the Prysmian Group is now the world’s largest producer of power and telecommunication cables with 97 manufacturing plants, 17 Research & Development Centres, and around 22,000 employees.
Having been a preferred supplier of all of Telstra’s cable needs since 1998, the one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to the long term commercial partnership with Australia’s largest telecommunications provider. We have invested more than AU$20M in our Cromer (NSW) production facility since 1998, which has included AU$1.6M to double the capacity of our fibre optic plant to ensure long term local supply of fibre optic cable for Australia’s growing demand.
We are also committed to providing all of the necessary technical, installation, safety and practical information that may be required by designers, installers and users of our products in a comprehensive hand book that can easily be used in the field. Please accept this latest edition of the Telstra Cable Guide with our compliments.
