The presence of La Triveneta Cavi is strengthened in Germany thanks to the construction of a huge new Logistics Centre entirely dedicated to electrical cables which is the result of an important investment of our partner FEGA & Schmitt in Heilsbronn, near Nuremberg; the company is part of the giant Würth Group.
We are happy and proud to have been invited to the important event of June 7th, 2019 which was attended by our salesmen Giulio Pistoni and Piero Thiella. At the opening event the new Logistics Centre was unveiled in all its grandeur. Here are the numbers of the new construction:
40.000sqm of site area
15.000sqm of covered warehouse
65m long and 17m high shelf rows
250.000m3 of storage volume
10.000 pallet places
6 cable cutting stations
At the official presentation, to underline the importance of the investment, besides the managing directors of FEGA & Schmitt Bernd Eberlein and Frank Leyser, Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth also spoke (Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group). Further speakers were Robert Friedmann (Chairman of the Central Managing Board of the Würth Group), Dr. Jürgen Ludwig (Chairman of the Ansbach District) and Joachim Herrmann (the Bavarian Minister of the Interior). The conference was enlivened by musical performances by members of the Würth Philharmonic.
We congratulate FEGA & Schmitt for the exponential growth in recent years that has led them to be among our TOP 5 customers in terms of sales volume. This great investment in logistics will surely reward their corporate vision. We are ready to collaborate even more closely to meet the needs of the customers of FEGA & Schmitt, thanks to our new automated Logistics Centre presented in 2017 that allows faster, leaner and more accurate management of the shipments.
The LTC brand has been present in Germany for many years and is being further consolidated thanks to our ability to serve and supply important customers such as FEGA & Schmitt. In this market, in addition to the CPR Trisecur NHXMH cable, there are already substantial volumes of NYM, NYY, YSLY, J-Y(St)Y, EIB-BUS, EIB-BUS-HFR cables (also CPR certified) used in all civil installations and increasingly requested and appreciated for their qualities.
The brand La Triveneta Cavi was the protagonist of the recent Winter Olympics in South Korea 2018 which ended about a year ago.
Thanks to our Dubai partner Cleveland Cable, 250 Km of H07RN-F cable, manufactured at our La Triveneta Cavi facilities, were used to supply power to the entire Winter Olympic sports complex in Pyeongchang County, 180 Km from the capital Seoul.
Cleveland Cable recently told us about the success of such a big operation, starting with an auction that required a single cable supplier. The winner was our H07RN-F: it is a cable with excellent flexibility and good resistance to abrasion and tearing; it is resistant to weathering, grease and oil. It can be used both indoors and outdoors for mobile laying and ensures functioning down to -40°C, which is very important as these are winter sports games where snow and ice are the main element.
After the production that took place quickly and smoothly, the containers of material traveled directly from Italy to Dubai, where our partners worked with skill and precision in order to assemble cables and connectors under the instructions of their customers. The customer’s orders were very restrictive not only in the design phase but also as regards timing and shipments. The work table, in fact, required Cleveland Cable to supply the cable in very precise quantities and timescales and in steps. Furthermore, the budget and the estimated costs have always been respected, meeting the satisfaction of the final customer and, above all, the perfect success of all the installations of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
La Triveneta Cavi is very proud to have supplied its own product, designed and manufactured entirely in Italy for the realization of this great work of international scope and that has given us great visibility and prestige in our industry. We congratulate our partner Cleveland Cable and we look forward to the next major projects that await us in the world.
Interview to Mr. Matteo Caldognetto, Sales Export Manager of La Triveneta Cavi.
In which markets are LTC cables present?
The export market represents more than 70% of LTC’s turnover, since we are present in over 40 Countries worldwide. Over the past 5 years we have seen a constant rising on the export sales with a 60% increase from 2013 till 2018. This was possible thanks to the efforts of all our Area Managers, back office operators and all other LTC departments.
What are the emerging areas for LTC market?
Germany remains the main European market but we are also focusing on other markets , like Scandinavia, Eastern countries and Russia. Worldwide, South America is facing a positive trend, last year we signed an important agreement with Mexico and we keep developing new business with other important dealers in those countries, as well as Africa and South East Asia.
How is the Made in Italy product perceived?
It is very positively perceived. We receive many inquiries from countries which are installing high quality Italian machinery and they also need Italian cables to have all the characteristics and certifications that our market guarantees.
What are your goals for the immediate future?
To confirm our very good sales in Europe and develop all other non- EU countries where we are not present yet but that require high quality products and a flawless service.
What’s this year’s most important news about La Triveneta Cavi?
LTC has invested several millions by realising a new automated Logistics Center that brought many advantages for the customers in terms of fast deliveries and precision. We are able to load and despatch 30 trucks per day and we have improved also the quality of the service through an automated management of the delivery.
