Since 2014, Cable Services has been sole distributor for the UK contractor market. The Cable Services Group was founded in 1971 and is the UK’s leading Specialist Electrical Distributor. They stock and supply both cables and accessories and service Utility, Industrial/Commercial, Power Generation & Transmission, Rail and Oil, Gas & Petrochemical markets.
The experience in dealing with Lovink Enertech both from product and personnel aspects has been very good. Technical support is available from Bob Hutchings, Lovink Enertech’s representative for UK, or directly from the experts in Terborg. Nick Firth: “In addition to our commitment to hold stock of the Lovink Enertech products in the UK, our experienced staff have undergone product training from Lovink Enertech.” The combination of offering internal technical support and large stock holding allows Cable Services to identify customers’ requirements and offer next day or even same day delivery to support their needs.
Module system serves all customers
Nick Firth is very positive about the LoviSil® module system: “From a specialist distributor’s point of view, we find Lovink Enertech’s splicing module system of real great benefit. It offers real flexibility in the splice kits we can supply and enables us to support customers working on utility networks and in other market sectors from the same basic kits, despite the cables often being considerably different in design.”
Necessity of good training
Cable Services always offers product familiarisation training for installers through ‘Cable Training Services’, their in-house training facility located at Wrexham. “As a responsible distributor we want to ensure installers are familiar with installing the unique Lovink Enertech splicing system before opening the splice kits on site.” This training is delivered by Lovink Enertech authorised training instructors.
Cable Services see a positive future for their relationship with Lovink Enertech and look forward to cooperating on some interesting projects. Nick Firth explains: “In addition to the normal day to day requirements, we are currently working on a number of large projects that have Lovink Enertech products specified to overcome the splicing configuration and the site conditions that have been presented.” We will keep you informed in the coming issues.
