RADPOL S.A. - the parent company of RADPOL, has operated for 30 years and comes from Przedsiębiorstwo Doświadczalne Przemysłu Kablowego i Sprzętu Elektrotechnicznego KABLOSPRZĘT company established in 1970 in Ożarów Mazowiecki and is seated in Człuchów.
Originally, the subject of activity of present RADPOL was experimental production of machines and equipment for the cable industry.
In 1976 the Company was taken over by Fabryka Przewodów Elektrycznych „EMA – ZAŁOM” in Szczecin. The cooperation commenced a long process of extending the production range. The decreasing sales of layered connectors was replaced with new products such as electrical installation equipment made of aluminium and copper and cable bands and clips. The product range of power cables was also enriched and the thus far production of heat-shrinkable products was extended.
Presently, thanks to a consequently realised strategy of organic development through takeovers RADPOL operates in several perspective operating segments, among which numerous product and market synergies occur.
