Mayflex is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The company was founded on 17th March 1917 as Mayall & Co as a distributor of Swan Kettles by John William Mayall and stayed in the family for three generations. The Mayflex brand name was introduced in 1985 and became the name of the company shortly afterwards. Around this time the company entered the communication cables market launching a range of coax, voice and RS232 cables. This new venture gathered momentum and led to the ongoing development of network cabling in the form of copper twisted pair and fibre optic cables as they grew in popularity. In January 1997, Mayflex introduced the Excel brand.
Andrew Percival, Managing Director at Mayflex comments, “This important and exciting anniversary marks the longevity of our business and demonstrates our adaptability as market conditions and technology have evolved. Mayflex now employs 300 plus associates, from staff that have been in the business for 15, 20 even 30 years, along with newer recruits, bringing a great dynamic to the business. We are active across EMEA and will extend our reach further in the coming months. A huge thank you goes out to the teams across the business that strive day in day out to provide the best service possible to our customers.”
There will be both staff and customer events taking place at intervals throughout 2017 celebrating Mayflex’s 100 years.
