CABCON TECHNOLOGIES PTY (LTD)

Cabcon Technologies (Pty) Ltd started in 2003 as a small distributer of basic cables in Benoni, but quickly grew into a significant manufacturing company with hundreds of local and specialized cables, connectors and accessories that are manufactured and distributed across the world.
 
Cabcon Technologies (Pty) Ltd offers uncompromising adherence to quality and customer specification standards, yet is able to offer flexible and competitive pricing across its product range. In other words, Cabcon does not cut corners to cut costs at the customers’ expense. If we say a cable is made a certain way, albeit standard specification or customer request, then that is how the cable is made.

Cabcons Managing Director, Stephen Bowles, has been in the cable manufacturing industry for more than twenty years and through his passion and experience, has guided Cabcon to where it is today. He has designed a number of speciality cables for customers who had a specific cable requirement but did not know how to achieve it. Through his design and ingenuity Cabcon is able to manufacture some of the most unique application cables in the industry.

Cabcon is ISO certified and cable manufactured under our CAB-TECH™ trademark offers the kind of quality that gives peace of mind to our customers, knowing the cable installed will function as it was intended and will offer the kind of safety and reliability that is expected.
