Custom cables can be stocked for next-day delivery

It makes a lot of sense to buy a cable that fits a project’s needs perfectly rather than run several cables that almost do what is needed, says FS Cables. Some of the cables that customers need are composites using a variety of cables within a single outer jacket, combining coaxial cables with power and signal cables to run up camera masts, for example, or multi-core versions of a single core cable that have very precise electrical characteristics for monitoring. Others need cables combining diff erent elements, for example nylon tubes for pneumatic equipment alongside multiple conductors and specialist grade sheaths to protect against environmental challenges and chemicals. The company invites customers to talk through likely order quantities

and production times, identifying any potential pitfalls and discuss where savings can be made. Up to one year’s requirement can be ordered to be held in stock for next-day delivery. “You specify, we supply” says the company, with quantities, in some cases, as low as 100m. Customers with a regular

requirement for a particular cable may benefit from using the call-off order service. Contracts can be up to 12 months. Cable called off will normally be invoiced when delivered, spreading the cost over the length of the agreement. In most cases, the entire order will be manufactured in one go and held in stock for next working day delivery.

A voice for the UK aerospace industry

Businesses in the aerospace sector and its supply chain are represented by the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium – FAC South East Aerospace and given a voice on the national and international stage. The business-winning trade

association with national and international members is the longest established aerospace and defence trade body in the UK, providing support to 300 companies. Benefits for members include

major networking and exhibition opportunities, regular conferences, awards events and the ability to tap into years of experience and expertise. The consortium can also help with recruitment and members receive

discounts on various services. Last year in the UK, the total civil

aerospace turnover alone was almost £35bn, with a 17% market share. The consortium believes the more

members it has the stronger its voice and the better for the industry and its supply chain. The consortium is led by veteran aerospace champions, CEO, David Barnes, and chairman, Sir Donald Spiers.
