The Company manufactures and sells a wide variety of wire and cable products primarily in four general categories: telecommunications cable, power transmission cable, electronic cable and enameled wire.The Company's telecommunications and power cables are used in a range of infrastructure projects and in commercial and residential developments.The Company's electronic cables are used in the electronics, computer, building automation, audio and communication industries. The Company's enameled wire is used in the manufacturing of components and sub-components of household appliances and small machinery. In addition, the Company acts as the Singapore distributor of copper rod and wire and cable products manufactured by PEWC. In 1997, the Company also began offering SDI project engineering services of medium and high voltage cable for power transmission projects in Singapore.
Copper rod is the base component for most of the Company’s products. The manufacturing processes for these products require that the rod be “drawn” and insulated. In the “drawing” process, copper rod is drawn through a series of dies to reduce the copper to a specific diameter. For certain applications, the drawn copper conductor is then plated with tin. Copper used in cables is covered with various insulating materials that are applied in an extrusion process. The insulated wires are then combined, or “cabled” to produce the desired electrical properties and transmission capabilities. Then, depending upon the cable, some form of protective cover is placed over the cabled wires.
