According to BSRIAs annual independent Structured Cabling report, Excel’s market share for copper cabling systems increased from 11% in 2010 to 15% in 2011, placing it in 3rd place for a second year running. The gap between 2nd and 3rd place in the market share report shrunk dramatically from 7% the previous year to just 3% in 2011, further emphasizing increasing market acceptance of the Excel brand.
For the second year running Excel retained the number one position, for sales of copper cable which grew from 17.90% to 22.2%. The report also confirmed a strong performance in the optical fibre market with Excel now supplying 8% of market demand, placing it in 4th position in terms of share.
Mark Simmons, Sales Director, says, “Once again we are delighted with the results and it’s great to see our market share growing at the time when the market isn’t. 2011 has been a phenomenal year for Excel, we’ve given the brand a total refresh and re-launched our partner programme to provide much more emphasis on continual learning, to ensure that our end user customers get the very best service and support from our accredited partners.’
Simmons continues ‘Excel won the Network Computing ‘Cabling Supplier of the Year’ for a second year running and we were also recently voted as the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ by Comms Expo which is further acknowledgement of the quality and acceptance of the Excel brand in the market, which is now sold in 62 countries worldwide.’
Concluding Simmons said ‘We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customer base as without them, these accolades really wouldn’t be possible.
