An Australian defence electrical systems and C4I provider has expanded its operations and opened a new office in eastern Europe.

Cablex, manufacturer of custom cables and complex wiring harnesses, has announced the opening of its new office in Warsaw, Poland. The company said the decision to expand was largely due to the growing market opportunities since Poland embarked upon an ambitious armed forces modernisation program, with the government planning to spend $45 billion over the next decade.

The company said Poland's large aerospace sector was attractive, with many major global players already established in Aviation Valley located in southern Poland, including Sikorsky/Lockheed Martin, Leonardo, Airbus, Safran and Pratt & Whitney.

Michael Zimmer, Cablex chief executive, said, “The office will focus on providing mechanical and electrical systems solutions for the aerospace and defence industrial sectors while also servicing local and international customers.

“We see enormous benefits for our international customers with the new site being in close proximity to their supply chains in Europe."

Established in 1985, Cablex has experience in developing and manufacturing electrical systems for harsh environments and developing solutions where electrical noise is a critical factor. The company deals in engineering support and C4I systems engineering and integration capabilities.

In June 2017, Cablex received Airbus Helicopters’ Best Global Supplier Award for industrial performance, further demonstrating its standing in the international community.
