In the fiscal 2001-02, Finolex Cables posted a turnover of Rs 374.8 crore

from sales of communication cables, with a growth of 18.6 percent. The total

turnover of the company, which also sells electrical cables was to the tune of

Rs 604.6 crore.


Last fiscal, the company completed the acquisition of erstwhile wholly-owned

subsidiary Finolex Technologies (JV with Lucent Technologies). Finolex has also

embarked upon expansion of its optical fiber division at Urse, near Pune. In the

first stage, 1.2 million fiber km capacity per annum would be created. In the

second stage, with addition of equipment, an additional capacity of 1.2 million

fiber km per annum will be created. In the first phase, the total capital outlay

is estimated at Rs 125 crore and trial runs are expected to start by

September/October, 2002.

Finolex Cables also became the first Indian company to manufacture the

trunk-and-distribute CATV range of cables.

Theseables are manufactured at its

facility at Goa. With this, Finolex now has the complete range of Internet-ready

coaxial and CATV cables, jelly-filled telephone cables, and optical fiber

cables, which form the core of telecommunications cables.
