ELECTRICITY MADE SIMPLE 5: CABLES 1


CHOICE OF CABLES 4: NIGERIAN CABLE UNVEILED

 

PROLOGUE

I hereby extend my unreserved apologies to all readers of my series on electricity over the long silence. I thank those who were concerned enough to call, text and send messages. I feel honored that in a country where people are said not to read, we still have people following my thoughts. Thank you once again.

 

The break in dispatching my thoughts on ELECTRICITY MADE SIMPLE was caused in part, by my series of travels within and without the country to attend trainings and conferences in the last 3 months. However, the more disturbing factor was caused by my attempts since February this year to get a confirmation of the authentic list of cable manufacturers with NIS certification, from Standard Organization of Nigeria, for the concluding part of this series. I communicated with them severally and as at this time I am publishing this article, I have not received any reply.

 

So, let us roll.

 

LIST OF NIGERIAN CABLE MANUFACTURERS

Basically, Engineers/Electricians would specify the different types of cables and quantities to buy for your project and as we have stated earlier; if you use unsuitable cables, you may be courting improper functioning of devices/appliances, fire and/or electrocution. So, to help the readers, I have compiled the Names and addresses of all 13 cable manufacturers in Nigeria as stated below. 11 have actually been listed because Talind produced in Bauchi and Bracon in Lagos were not picking calls and they have no valid website to ascertain their continued existence and performance.

 

I recommend that if you intend to buy fairly large quantity of cables, or you just want to be sure, you should contact the manufacturers directly to give you information about their distributors so that you can buy authentic Nigerian cables from the accredited dealers. This is important because our people are now importing from China, fake/copied Nigerian Cables with logo and names of Nigerian cable manufacturers, as demonstrated earlier.

 

 

I affirm once again that cables manufactured in Nigeria are world class and I recommend them without any doubt, provided the original cables are used.

I have arranged the list in alphabetic order and I can confirm that they all manufacture very good cables with Nigeria Industrial Standard (NIS) certification and they all comply with relevant ISO manufacturing standards:
