Prysmian Group History

A journey that began two centuries ago


With over 140 years of cumulative experience, the Group has a long history and has always been at the forefront of striving to meet evolving customer needs.
The history of our business charts the history of the cable industry itself, marked by many major milestones along the way, which cement our reputation as an early adopter and industry pioneer.

2019 - Expanding Our Reach

Our union with General Cable secures our leadership position in the cable industry.

As a result, we have an even broader set of skills in the business, a greatly enhanced portfolio of ground-breaking products and a stronger presence in the valuable North American market. It’s a partnership that not only sees us out in front together, but affirms our commitment to being a true technology enabler.
