Mosdorfer CCL

History

Mosdorfer (UK) Ltd was established in 1988 and quickly became a major supplier to the National Grid Company and the Major Contractors working on the Transmission Network. In subsequent years it diversified into specialist products for the distribution segment of the market and latterly into the substation segment. Prior to 1999 there was limited manufacturing at the Market Overton site with the emphasis on the sales of Knill Gruppe product into the UK.

In October 1999 Mosdorfer (UK) acquired the electrical interests of CCL Systems from the Newmond group. The CCL business can be traced back to 1935 where as Cable Covers Ltd produced interlocking bricks to lay over electric power cable laid in trenches, the factory being alongside the Leeds United Football ground at Elland Road. The group grew into a business that was loosely based around the manufacture of connectors for the electrical, wire rope and construction markets.

In 1997, the CCL group was acquired by Newmond group, mainly for its construction interest and moved to a new business unit at Stourton on the outskirts of Leeds. The CCL Electrical business was a mix of low volume manufacturing and internationally sourced products for the distribution segment both in the UK and international markets.

The acquisition of CCL resulted in Mosdorfer CCL Systems Ltd being formed, which was a company, which could sell products from 240V up to 800kV. In December 1999 the manufacturing was transferred from Leeds to Market Overton.

In November 2000 Mosdorfer CCL Systems was appointed the UK distributor for Hubbell of America. This allows the company to stock and sell the brand names of Chance, Ohio Brass, Anderson, and Fargo into the UK market.

Mosdorfer CCL Systems is an authorised distributor for Klein safety and stringing products.

In 2002 acquires Pavilion Engineering from BB Price and is also appointed as distributor for S+C products.

2003 Mosdorfer CCL acquires the Substation Connector business of Cruickshanks.
