Hellenic Cables
Hellenic Cables represents the cable production and marketing sector of Viohalco and is one of the largest cable producers in Europe. The Company started its activities in 1950 as a Viohalco plant and in 1973 it was incorporated as an independent subsidiary under the name Hellenic Cables, expanding its production and trade operations. Today, Hellenic Cables consists of Hellenic Cables S.A. which operates three plants in Viotia, Greece that produce cables, enamelled wires, plastic and elastomer compounds; the Fulgor S.A. plant in Corinth, Greece, which manufactures power cables, submarine cables and copper wires; and Icme Ecab S.A., a power and telecommunication cable manufacturer in Bucharest, Romania. 
With a strong export orientation and focus on development of value added products, such as high and extra-high voltage cables and submarine cables, the Group makes significant investments towards enriching its product portfolio and enhancing its sustainability profile. In 2012, the Company completed a EUR 50 million investment plan for the manufacture of high-voltage submarine cables in Fulgor's plant.
The Company's wide product range, which is sold internationally, extends to PVC, EPR and XLPE insulated power cables (rated up to 500kV), marine and low smoke halogen free cables, fire resistant cables, telecommunication, signal and data cables with copper conductors or optical fibres, as well as fire retardant halogen free plastic and elastomer compounds and enamelled wires. Wires and cables are supplied to a variety of international standards, such as VDE, CEI, NF, SEN, BS, UL, NEMA, JIS, ASTM, DIN and ELOT. Many of the Company's products are certified by ELOT, BASEC, VDE, IMQ, NF-USE, NETWORK RAIL, KEMA, DNV and UL.
All enamelled wires are manufactured and tested to the IEC 60317-0-1 standard; customers may also request any other recognised international standard.
Technical know-how from world leaders such as the VISCAS Corporation is combined with continued investment in state-of-the-art machinery to ensure levels of efficiency and quality which meet the strictest standards. The Company's Quality Management System is certified to ISO 9001:2008, its Environmental Management System to ISO 14001:2004 and its Occupational Health and Safety to OHSAS 18001:2007.
