Prysmian Group in North America
Prysmian Group operates 10 plants in North America serving the telecom and energy markets. The Group consists of Prysmian and Draka, two of the strongest and most respected commercial brands in the industry, whose highly complementary products and services meet the needs for two distinct sectors: Telecom Cables & Systems produces optical fibers, optical cables and connectivity for video, data and voice transmission. Prysmian Group has two fiber optic manufacturing facilities in the United States covering 1.5 million square feet, including the only co-located fiber and cable facility in North America.
In our energy business, we design and produce cables and systems for the transmission and distribution of low, medium, high and extra high voltage systems. In 2009, Prysmian built the only Vertical Continuous Vulcanization line in North America in the Abbeville, SC plant. This facility is used to produce insulated high voltage cables. In addition, the group has a manufacturing facility in Prescott, Ontario to meet Canada’s power cabling needs.
