Prysmian Cables & Systems reps to speak at upcoming conference

Nov. 8, 2005 - Representatives from former Pirelli Cables & Systems will speak at IWCS.

Prysmian Cables & Systems, the former cable business Pirelli Cables & Systems, will play a major role at next week's International Wire and Cable Symposium.

The symposium, IWCS, will take place at Providence, RI from Nov. 13-16.

Following its acquisition by Goldman Sachs Capital Partners on July 28, the former Pirelli Cables & Systems has now been renamed as Prysmian Cables & Systems. The company, whose US headquarters is in Lexington, SC, where it has been producing optical cables for the country's telecommunications market for more than 20 years, will present four technical papers covering a wide range of topics. The topics include new designs and applications of optical fiber, advanced manufacturing methods for optical cable and new construction concepts for Optical Ground Wire.

Prysmian's participation at this event emphasizes the company's determination to demonstrate that it is still very much business as usual following the launch of its new name.

"The message we want to give at IWCS is very clear," says Lexington-based Brian DiLascia, vice president and general manager of Prysmian Communications Cables and Systems USA, LLC. "Our name may have changed but our approach to the technical challenges of the business remains the same - success in our market is only achieved through a continuous effort to improve and innovate across our full product range, at all times focusing on the needs of our customers who require the highest quality, cost-effective solutions."

The technical papers have all been prepared locally at the respective production facilities in USA, Brazil, Italy and Spain and representatives from each location will be present. Global research and development activities within Prysmian are managed and coordinated from company headquarters in Milan, Italy.

Prysmian will also be present in the exhibition hall section of the symposium (stand 228/230). Visitors will be able to meet senior representatives of the company and learn about additional new products and developments within Prysmian.
