ST. FLORIAN, Austria—Helukabel GmbH has opened a sales office in St. Florian, which is about nine miles south of Linz, Austria, to support the European wire and cable industry.
The firm said Helukabel Austria GmbH is its 24th international affiliate and will be under the direction of Manfred Breurather.
Helukabel said a permanent sales and distribution facility within the Austria location is expected in a few years as customer demand increases. Until then, the sales office will receive product distribution and logistics support from the firm's warehouse at its global headquarters in Hemmingen, Germany.
Helukabel operates affiliates in China, India, Malaysia, South Korea and Thailand, which serve the Asia-Pacific region. It serves the North American region through its headquarters in Elgin, Ill., just outside of Chicago and operates a Canadian sales and distribution subsidiary in Toronto.
Earlier this year, Helukabel opened international affiliates in the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Indonesia.
