August 3, 2009 -- General Cable Corp. has acquired the combined companies of Gepco International, Inc. and Isotec, Inc. Gepco, a manufacturer and provider of high-end cabling products for the professional broadcast and entertainment markets, reported 2008 revenues of approximately $46 million.

"With the acquisition of Gepco International and Isotec's specialty electronic cable business, General Cable expects to significantly expand its share of this important U.S. market as well as leverage General Cable's global sales infrastructure with this technically superior brand of multimedia cables in markets all over the world," comments Jay Lahman, vice president and general manager for the Carol, Gepco, and Isotec brand products. We expect the market for these products to grow at roughly two times GDP in the U.S. and somewhat higher internationally due to ongoing global analog-to-digital conversions."

Greg Lampert, executive vice president, president, and CEO of General Cable North America adds, "I am pleased that Gary Geppert, [Gepco's] founder and a recognized innovator in the industry, has agreed to stay with the company. He has built Gepco into a technology leader in the professional broadcast industry, nearly doubling revenues of broadcast products over the last five years, and will continue to lead our efforts to develop new and innovative products."

The Gepco brand products encompass a complete line of professional broadcast, entertainment and audio/visual cable; cable assemblies in both standard and custom configurations; interconnect and cable-related accessories; and a range of optical fiber solutions.
