As part of the firm's corporate growth strategy, East African Cables, has completed refurbishment and upgrade works at its Kitui Road Copper Production plant.

The refurbishment and upgrade works, at more than Kshs 1billion, involved the construction of a new factory building and installation of modern cable and conductors manufacturing equipment.

Speaking, when he confirmed the works completion for the factory- scheduled to be officially opened later this September- outgoing East African Cables, Group Managing Director, Mr. George Mwangi, said the commissioning of the plant is a critical development for the firm, as Copper cables and conductors remain the firm's mainstay.

The refurbishment of the EAC Kitui Road plant, Mwangi, disclosed, has almost tripled the firm's Copper cables and conductors' manufacturing capacity.

With a 5.5% growth in the building and construction sector as noted in the 2014 economic survey, East African Cables, Mwangi noted is now well positioned to service the local and regional market demand for electrical cables.Read More...
