Mergers and takeovers are a way of life in the manufacturing industry. The big players are continually growing, and in the main, this is essential in order to remain competitive. One company for whom this strategy has proved particularly successful is the cable manufacturer TELE-FONIKA Kable SA. The TFKable Group was established in 1992 and is still growing, both through acquisitions of cable plants and the establishment of subsidiaries in Europe and the US. TELE-FONIKA Kable Central Europe GmbH is the German-based sales representative company for the Central European region.
