Tratos UK Ltd

Founded in 1966, Tratos  Ltd is a family run business, that has grown from a commodities manufacturer to a global brand defined by innovation, commitment to sustainability and quality. Today it represents the world-renowned superior quality cable manufacturer, selling an extensive range of cables to 52 countries, with manufacturing facilities in Italy and the UK and offices worldwide

Tratos’ mission has been a sole one: to create jobs in the most deprived areas and with it, to continuously support the sustainable development of the local communities by reducing poverty, bringing prosperity and hope for a brighter future for the present and next generations to come. 

With over 55 years of experience in the cable industry, Tratos’ engineering expertise is behind the development of highly specialised products for various sectors. From cabling for transport networks to a fusion for energy project of world significance, Tratos’ technology is at the forefront of the world’s most significant power, growth, environmental and connectivity projects. 

Tratos not only attempts to give a valuable contribution to the world by minimising the environmental impact of its products, but it also attempts to spread its vision of a sustainable model of business among its clients, partners, and followers to embrace a more environmentally friendly approach.

Built differently from other cable manufacturers, Tratos is proud of its culture of innovation.  It won a 2019 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.  It also invests in its people and their continued learning and plays an important part in developing next-generation engineers by opening the Tratos Cable Academy to universities’ engineering faculties.

Cables that have gone from pure copper to a superconductor cable were Tratos’ solution for F4E (Fusion4Energy) and the company is driving forward with some of the greenest cables on the market today. Tratos is a reliable partner of the ICAS  consortium and  ITER project, a 35-country project designed to harness fusion power for limitless carbon-free energy, where it supplied a special HV cable for the development of the beam accelerator. ITER is the world’s biggest-ever magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment, and it is set to replicate the sun’s energy for a renewable green energy source.

Tratos has Developed the Alternative Power Marine system and leads the Approved Cables Initiative and Safer Structures Campaign. Tratos has campaigned for a real super-fast fibre broadband network for the UK, one with the power and speed to rescue the UK economy and put it back on the winner’s podium.  

A business with strong corporate social responsibility, Tratos fully supports the 2030 development agenda and tirelessly contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Its products are fully recycled and made in respect of environmental standards. It is proud of its environmentally friendly cables connecting and powering the world.

Already carbon-neutral, Tratos is investing in technology to capture carbon emissions from the atmosphere and supports the UK government's goals to achieve net-zero targets by 2050.

Tratos firmly believes in innovation, as without it any business cannot survive. The successful exploitation of new ideas is crucial to a business being able to thrive, improve its processes, bring new and improved products and services to market, increase its efficiency and, most importantly, improve its profitability. 

Tratos never stopped providing design advice and engineered solutions to a range of complicated cases to its worldwide customers. That is why Tratos is welcomed everywhere and established operating offices across the planet.
