The living history of Nexans

Nexans is proud of its long lasting history of over 120 years. 120 years of innovation, flagship projects and international growth.

120 years of destiny that we owe to two remarkable personalities: François Borel, genius inventor, and Edouard Berthoud, brilliant industrialist.

With over a century of experience, Nexans has never stopped building the future of electricity and will continue for the years to come.

More than 120 years, 3 industrial revolutions... and starting a new chapter

In 2019, Nexans completed the first chapter of an epic industrial story that started in the 19th century. After more than 120 years of conquests, major achievements and pioneering inventions, the Group is now starting the second chapter in its history.
