Sviaz-Expocomm exhibition team congratulates all employees of the cable industry, who celebrated their professional holiday on October 25!

28 / 10 / 2014

The word ‘cable’ is derived from the Dutch ‘kabel’ and denotes one or more insulated electric conductors enclosed in a jacket with protective covers over it.

On October 25, 1879 engineer from the Siemens & Halske electric company Carl Siemens was issued a certificate authorizing the execution of the works on the company’s factory for insulated wire and telegraph cable manufacturing in the Russian city of St. Petersburg. This day is now regarded as the day of creation of the cable industry in Russia.

Nowadays cable is used for transmission of electrical energy or signals, such as high voltage power lines, power supply of industrial enterprises, transport and public utilities; trunk line, city telephone network, radio communications and television; supply of electricity to moving machines; electrical equipment of ships, aircraft.

Currently more than 350 enterprises work in the Russian cable industry. To everyone who is involved, we wish health, good luck and prosperity in business.
