Local expertise, global capabilities

Our products

We ensure your success with bespoke solutions from near and afar

Nexans New Zealand has been in operation since 1967 from its purpose-built factory in New Plymouth, Taranaki. Our business has been a significant contributor to the development of the Taranaki region and the country as a whole, not only through the provision of employment, but by being a New Zealand based manufacturer and supplier of electrical cables and products.

Manufacturing and our head office are based in New Plymouth with a sales office in Auckland, and a sales and distribution warehouse in Christchurch. The factory produces a wide range of electrical cables, ranging from low voltage through to medium voltage power cables with ratings up to 33kV, all of which are quality and environmentally certified to ISO9001 and ISO14001.

We can offer specialist services and the latest expertise from around the world from within the global Nexans Group.

Nexans acquired Olex Cables in Australia and New Zealand in 2006, and now our respective customers can benefit from the same local expertise as well as a range of proven solutions from our partnership network around the globe.
