Connecting the Americas of tomorrow

An industry leader in telecom power cables, NKT is helping to unite the continent with 5G. We are pioneers on a constant journey of innovation. We’re your trusted connectivity partner.

A trailblazer in the telecom power cable industry, NKT is looking to use its 5G roll-out to connect America like never before.
Our 5G power cables will open up a new technological landscape for millions of people. And this connectivity will be underpinned by a set of ambitious sustainability targets that look to reduce our impact on the environment.
As the first major power cable manufacturer to sign up for Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), we are committed to achieve net-zero emissions no later than 2050, we believe it is our company’s purpose to power the possibilities of a more sustainable tomorrow through innovation. The almost unimaginable can be achieved if we are truly connected.
In our 130 year history we have never stopped being cutting-edge. This constant progress is the key to making us better; more environmentally-friendly products, more reliable cables, and more sustainable ways of working that also support and empower you in your choices.
This makes us your all-round trusted partners on the journey towards more sustainable global connectivity. 

On the road to a better, more sustainable future

Constant innovation and a culture of sustainability have made us leaders in our field. ESG (Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) ratings put us in the top 1% of sustainable companies in our industry. That means the responsibility lies with us to keep pushing for more.
As well as signing up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to become a net-zero emissions company by 2050, we are also working towards approved near-term targets. We will reduce Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 90% by 2030, putting our decarbonization roadmap in line with the Paris agreement's 1.5C global warming limit. 
Our sustainability roadmap will see us work towards several SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). When it comes to decarbonization, we are sourcing 100% renewable electricity at all of our NKT sites and further decarbonizing the processes in our production. On top, we are proactively engaging with our key suppliers to align responsible business practices and work towards decarbonization along the value chain as well.
To achieve these ambitious targets, we will harness our prominent role within the telecoms industry to improve the environmental impact of our processes and products,  empowering consumers to make more sustainable choices.
We believe we can become the number one preferred sustainable business in the industry, while maintaining our role as a reliable and superior cable manufacturer.
This is how we’re powering the connectivity revolution; through sustainability, reliability, and the pursuit of excellence. 

Meeting needs, exceeding expectations

We are tirelessly working towards fully optimizing our cables across environmental impact, cost, performance and ease of use. This means we can meet your needs and exceed your expectations across these four key indicators:
  • Sustainability - We put environmental and social sustainability at the heart of what we do. We strive to have the most sustainable products in the industry, actively pursuing net-zero emissions, increased circularity through recycling used materials, and a transparency that holds us accountable to our customers. We use 100% renewable electricity at all our production sites. We want to use our expertise and passions to solve real-world sustainability problems.
  • Availability – We’re fast and reliable. We deliver rapidly from our two North American warehouses, making us your ideal partner for time-critical projects thanks to a large, flexible production capacity and deep experience in cable manufacture.
  • Responsiveness – We’re open and communicative. Our US team has built lasting partnerships with customers because we anticipate their needs and deliver what we promise. We're dedicated to intimately understanding and proactively addressing your needs with superior sustainable options, setting us apart as industry leaders. Whenever you need us, our expertise and support are only a phone call away.
  • Quality – We know customers rely on you, so we make cables you can rely on. In the six years we’ve operated in America, we’ve had zero rejects for our cables. Designed specifically for telecoms, they’re halogen-free and adhere to top fire safety requirements. This means they’re not only safe, but also more sustainable. We continue to work towards reducing our negative environmental impact without ever compromising on quality or performance.

Our product portfolio

Our ambition to be at the forefront of the world is showcased in our diverse, industry-leading portfolio of products.
Each and every product blends efficiency, sustainability, and superior performance, proving that we always strive for excellence in all that we do.
Working in close cooperation with our customers and the telecom industry we have developed technology to suit its changing needs. As the industry transformed – from traditional cabinet base stations to distributed radio units and small cell radio systems – our energy cables have changed too, responding to the growing demands of our world.
But not only can our products be better for the world, they’re also better for you. Our range of indoor and outdoor designs allows us to offer cost-effective cables for almost any site solution, and our flexible designs are preferred by professional installers across the industry.
A flexible production set-up and US warehousing mean you can count on us to deliver with short lead times. NKT cables are always manufactured to quality and safety standards in accordance with UL.

From America to the world

NKT is on the ground in North America with a subsidiary and warehouse in Dallas, Texas. Beyond these shores we are a truly global industry player, manufacturing energy cables from production plants throughout Europe.

Legacy you can trust

Our telecom journey began with fixed line energy cables before moving on to NMT and then GSM. Since then we’ve grown with the technology – from 3G to 4G to 5G, and beyond. We’re excited to see where the future can take us.
Thanks to our history of innovation and constant drive for excellence, we are the preferred global supplier for multiple OEMs and carriers. We will continue to strive for more, hoping to become the leading sustainable business in the industry. We believe it is our company’s purpose to better connect a more sustainable world. 
Just as we can prove our sustainability credentials with data and evidence, our customers - ranging from global telecom vendors to highly specialized niche players - prove our credibility. Large or small, they trust us because we put their needs first, developing specific products on request and exceeding expectations in terms of sustainability, reliability, excellence and communication.

Our cables in use

The diagrams below show two energy cable set-ups for a typical telecom tower. In both set-ups, the power cables run from a power distribution unit on the ground to radios mounted on the tower, close to the antennae. Grounding cables connect any equipment (such as radios or cabinets) to an earth terminal, while battery cables connect power distribution to backup batteries.
