We are Nexans, we electrify the future.
Electrification is in our DNA
For over 120 years, Nexans has played a crucial role in the electrification of the planet and has been committed to electrifying the future. Today, Nexans renews its ties with its DNA and goes beyond cables to offer more value to its customers with a complete service that leverages digital technology to maximize the performance and efficiency of their critical assets. Nexans is a key driver for the world’s transition to a more connected and sustainable energy future.

The electrification market represents 65% of the world cable market and is expected to grow by +4.3% per annum over the next 10 years driven by key growth trends: changing lifestyles and growing energy consumption, demand for sustainable energies, grid modernization and protection. The world is becoming more electric and carbon neutral. Likewise, our scope of customer needs are changing from cables to systems and interconnected solutions.
Convinced that remaining a generalist will be more a weakness than a strength, Nexans intends to become a pure electrification player.
E3 is a performance model developed by Nexans that builds profitability without growth by ending the silos between Economy, Environment, and Engagement.
It is the new basis on which to evaluate projects and make decisions on CAPEX and OPEX that now have to be E3 compatible to be launched.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a guiding principle of Nexans’ business activities and internal practices. In 2013 Nexans was the first cable provider to create a Foundation supporting sustainable initiatives bringing access to energy to disadvantaged communities worldwide.
The Group’s commitment to developing ethical, sustainable and high-quality cables also drives its active involvement within leading industry associations, including Europacable, the NEMA, ICF and CIGRE.
The living history of Nexans
Nexans is proud of its long-lasting history of over 120 years of innovation, flagship projects and international growth. A destiny that we owe to two remarkable personalities: François Borel, genius inventor, and Edouard Berthoud, brilliant industrialist.
With over a century of experience, major achievements, pioneering inventions, and 3 industrial revolutions, the Group has never stopped building the future of electricity and will continue for the years to come.
