About Us Who are Doncaster Cables?

  • Doncaster Cables

    Doncaster Cables is the largest British owned general wiring manufacturer in the UK.

    We have been manufacturing cables since 1984 and among our current staff alone we have over 1000 years direct cable manufacturing experience. Throughout this time we have continued to develop in to an internationally recognised brand throughout the cable industry.

    Our company has experienced and dedicated staff, committed to developing and improving customer service. In addition to these points, we also have trained specialist technical staff who provide back up and valuable help to answer many customer questions.

    As well as our third party approvals from BASEC, LPCB, CSA and UL we are also a member of the Approved Cables Initiative (ACI). As a UK cable manufacturer we see ourselves as an integral part of the ACI's mission; which is to be an "industry wide working group with supply chain representatives bodies that has been established to address the issue of unsafe, non-approved and counterfeit cable entering the UK market place".

    This is why we are proud to be the manufacturer of 'Doncaster Cables' - 'The Great British Cable'.

  • We Manufacture!

    Our manufacturing facility is equipped with modern cable making plant and equipment, allowing us to control all aspects of the manufacturing process; from wire drawing and compound manufacture through to the subsequent cable manufacturing processes to achieve the finished product. This allows us to be at the forefront of product development in order to maintain our cables at the highest quality.

    Our extensive manufacturing capabilities and versatility enable us to manufacture an extensive product range. A range which not only covers cables manufactured to meet British, European and International Standards; but also, through research and development with our customers, we can manufacture to customer specific specifications. These research, trial and development projects have resulted in the creation of new products made specifically to their (or in the future your) requirements.

    We operate a Quality Management System (QMS) which is compliant with the stringent requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008. This QMS is regularly audited by our third party approval bodies, including BASEC (British Approvals Service for Cables) and LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board), to ensure that we continually improve as a company. Proof of this continued development can be illustrated by the fact that we have maintained our third party approvals continuously for over 24 years.
