Cable specialists form ties with new manager


Cable protection company Flexicon has appointed a new specification manager.

Martin Francis is undertaking the newly created role for the UK and Ireland region. The position has been designed to assist customers with more complex cable protection requirements — helping to specify the correct flexible conduit to meet a range of legislative, safety and performance requirements.

Martin has a range of electrical engineering experience after working throughout his career with numerous cable manufacturers and suppliers. His most recent position was with the Prysmian Group, where he worked with contractors, design engineers and electrical specifiers in product selection for more than 12 years.

Another notable role he undertook was as account manager for cable system manufacturer Huber & Suhner. He has also held specialist technical specification roles with AEI cables.

Martin said: “Having worked in the electrical industry my entire career, I am looking forward to sharing my experience, and advice, with customers to ensure that their cable protection is not only fit for purpose, but can help improve quality, performance and uptime.”
