Excel leads in UK copper structured cabling market

New BSRIA report cites Excel as one of only a few manufacturers to increase its market share.

The copper and optical cabling infrastructure provider Excel Networking Solutions announced that it is now ranked as the second largest supplier of copper cabling systems to the UK, according to BSRIA's recent 2013 Structured Cabling Report for the UK. The BSRIA report cited Excel as one of only a few manufacturers to increase its market share, from 15% to 17%, while at the same time moving from 3rd to 2nd position in the top companies' rankings.

Commenting on the report, Andrew Percival, managing director for Excel, said, "We are absolutely delighted with the results; 2012 was a significant year for Excel and saw some great projects come to fruition -- including Coca Cola, Burberry, London Olympics, Lexmark and Nokia, to name but a few."

Excel was also reported as the number one supplier of copper cable for a second year running, with a total market share of 24%, again rising by 2% on the previous year.

Andrew continued, "We’ve continued to develop the range and provide our customer base with more choice -- and we’ve spent a lot of time producing collateral, such as the second edition of the Excel Encyclopaedia that really helps end users, consultants and installers get a better understanding of structured cabling and is the complete oracle when it comes to the Excel solution."

BSRIA reported that the company also increased its market share by 1% for the supply of multimode fiber and is ranked within the top four manufacturers of fiber cable in the UK.

Excel's Andrew concluded, "2013 is already well underway and looks like another positive year for Excel. Our aim is to delight our customers with both the product quality and the service that they receive and in turn continue to grow the market share for Excel. I would like to thank the entire Excel team and most importantly,our customers, for their ongoing support, which has made this announcement possible."
