Alvern Cables was established in 1967 by AE Hendey, V Higham and PG Wiggin. Struggling to get the cables they required for signalling purposes in the railway industry, they decided to manufacture the required cable themselves. Owing to the downturn in the railway sector, the then parent company SA Signals was superseded by Alvern Cables.

From these humble beginnings in 1967, Alvern Cables has grown into a cable manufacturer that employs nearly 300 people. It has a manufacturing plant based in Knights, Gauteng, where the best virgin grade materials are used to manufacture a wide range of high end, low voltage electrical copper cables. The products are then distributed to branches in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, or to its export division.

Aligning with its goal to constantly grow and improve its product offering, Alvern Cables has marked its 50th birthday with a range of new products which includes:

• AL-VK (RV-K) trailing cable – the only locally manufactured trailing cable with polyethylene cores.
• Split neutral and earth concentric cables.
• Concentric neutral with and without pilot cores for power supply to low cost developments.
• Blasting wire.

Alvern Cables is adept at manufacturing cables but also has a successful distribution division that buys and stocks premium quality cables and brands it does not manufacture. With renewables being the buzz word in the industry, it stocks the new H1Z2Z2-K solar specification at a competitive cost. Other products include Cat cables, RG cables, Aluminium cables, and Braided and Rubber cables. This area of the business has recently been expanded under the instrumentation, control and specialised (ICS) umbrella to include instrumentation and control.

From power to electronic/automation, Alvern Cables has a wide range of readily available products and solutions, making it a one stop cable shop.

50 years of excellent service, quality and competitive pricing make Alvern Cables a valued cable solutions provider.
