Legrand Seico … ideal choice

Legrand Seico gains ground in the Gulf

As a leading player in the cable management industry, it is now setting the pace in product innovation, quality control and timely delivery of cable management solutions

Driven by its ethos of innovation and acquisitions, Legrand continues to gain ground in the Gulf, with its acquisition of Seico (Saudi Electric Industries Company) having reinforced its standing as a leader in the regional cable management industry.

The move in February 2013 has helped the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures strengthen its foothold and presence in Saudi Arabia, where Seico – a market leader for industrial metal cable trays – enjoys strong ties with key players in the oil and gas vertical market. The acquisition has also raised the quality bar at Seico through the implementation of all-encompassing international standards – from Day One – in its production processes, says Hisham Darwish, marketing and communications manager. It has also brought global exposure to the Saudi company with Legrand’s network which includes facilities in more than 80 countries and a market share in close to 180 countries.

Legrand Seico is now setting the pace in product innovation, quality control and timely delivery of cable management solutions in the Middle East and has positioned itself as an approved vendor to many of the leading companies in the oil and gas sector, including Saudi Aramco, Sabic Services Ltd, Qatar Petroleum, Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), Takreer, Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations (Adco), Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (Adgas), Qatargas, and Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (Gasco).

In fact, it has proven to be the ideal choice for any type of project in the GCC’s power, oil and gas, industrial and commercial sectors.

The company’s three manufacturing facilities in Saudi Arabia offer a comprehensive range of solutions including cable management systems (cable ladders, trays, trunking and support systems), cable glands, earthing and lighting products for use in the industrial and commercial markets.

Legrand Seico has been providing effective, efficient and reliable solutions in cable trays, cable ladders and cable support made of pre-galvanised, aluminium and hot-dip galvanised steel, says Darwish. The company closely monitors the manufacturing process and applies strict procedures to ensure the highest possible quality in every product. The mechanical performance of all products and accessories is tested to the stringent requirements of the international standard IEC 61537 and NEMA depending on the case, says Darwish.

Legrand Seico’s role as a leader in the cable management industry is proven by multiple technical certifications and independent evaluations such as NEMA, IEC, BS-EN 61537 and ISO 9002.

The highly reliable earthing and lightning protection systems of the ISO-certified company are made from highly conductive materials and provide high resistance to corrosion to achieve a sustainable 'connection' to earth, he adds.

The company is also a leader in the cable glands industry, as proven by the EExe and EExd certifications.

Legrand Seico’s products conform to international standards EN50014, EN50018, EN50019 and EN60079-14 and are certified and marked as such.

As a pioneer and leader, Legrand considers that it has a responsibility to drive the electrical sector forward and also places special emphasis on ensuring a customer focus and customer satisfaction.

'Legrand places the user and his needs at the centre of its attention and its concerns. Every day, the Group counts on innovation, to be able to offer sustainable solutions to everyone and drive progress in the electrical sector. Because by making the user and the sector move forward, Legrand can also move forward,' Darwish concludes.
