Nexans also announced the appointment of its new business development manager in Jordan, who will help oversee the operations.
Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Tarek Helmy, Regional Director Gulf & Middle East, Nexans Cabling Solutions, said, “Over the past six months, we have expanded our presence in the region through strategic tie-ups and partnerships.

The new partnership will hold the key to providing better solutions and service to our customers in various market sectors.”
The new appointment comes close on the heels of some remarkable growth that Nexans has seen over the past few quarters and the vendor has been quick to respond with its expansion plans. It has already appointed partners in some of the GCC markets including Saudi Arabia to consolidate its growth and to deploy its best-in-class solutions.
“We have been bringing some innovative solutions to market consistently. With the recent announcements of new channel partners, we have also made it clear that we are committed to the Middle East market and are here to stay and support our customers through our carefully chosen partners.

Nexans recently introduced some revolutionary cabling products such as LANmark 6A (Augmented Cat6) and LANmark 7A (Augmented Cat7) solutions that have been recently defined by Cabling Standards Organizations.
