The collaboration will see Wibe cable ladders and Mita Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) containment products distributed to the UK through ‘Milton’, a new division of the Hudson Group.
The Mita brand is a leader in corrosion-resistant GRP containment products, which are ideal for extreme applications across sectors including nuclear, oil and gas, marine, pharmaceutical, and transport infrastructure.
Recognised for optimal strength and durability, Wibe cable ladders offer a highly efficient and flexible solution for the most demanding projects.
Hudson’s CEO Simon Hudson-Smith says, “Wibe has a track record that spans 100 years and is universally renowned for the quality of its cable support products. We are looking forward to building on this foundation and exploring new opportunities, including the potential to collaborate with RMS and Armorduct to bolster our offer to clients across the UK.”
Patrick Arcidiacono, Chief Executive Officer, Wibe Group adds, “This partnership will result in synergies that will benefit customers across a vast range of industries. Through Milton, we can quickly and effectively target the UK market with specialist products that will generate efficiencies and improve the quality of cable management solutions.
“An important part of the Wibe Group strategy is to join key players in cable management around the globe and by joining forces with Milton and the wider Hudson group including RMS and Armorduct, we are fulfilling our objective.
Milton will be headed by project director Paul Nolan who has worked in the electrical industry for more than three decades. With extensive experience in the cable management sector, Paul has particular knowledge of extreme environment challenges.
Paul adds, “Our key aim is to provide contractors and consultants with ‘fit and forget’ cable management systems. Our specialist product ranges enable solutions that deliver maintenance-free peak performance for harsh and hazardous projects throughout the lifecycle of the installation.
“The Mita products will bolster our specialist portfolio with GRP ladders, trays, channels, troughing and support systems that can be tailored for the most severe environments.”
Milton will be based at the Hudson Group’s head office in Andover, Hampshire.
