Our world is increasingly shaped by large and complex challenges. Climate change and the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy are among the biggest of those challenges. 

At Nexans, our role is to support customers as they embark on the massive task of delivering the energy transition. To do this, we constantly develop new products, services and solutions. These are designed to ease deployment and minimize environmental impact, reduce capital expenses and optimize the total cost of ownership.

In short, innovation is at the core of what we do and who we are – and it has been since the birth of Nexans more than 120 years ago.

“ Research and innovation is at the heart of Nexans’ strategy and is a key factor in the growth and transformation of our business. Nexans’ history has been marked by innovation for over 100 years, fully aligned with the evolving world leading to major changes in society, economics and the environment. ”
