Founded in 1854, Kerite is a subsidiary of Marmon Utility, a Marmon Wire and Cable/Berkshire Hathaway Company. With the recent appointment of Greg Smith as president of the company, as well as the appointment of a number of other key upper managers – among them Peter Ebersold as vice president of marketing and Tanya Lauer as vice president of sales of Kerite High Voltage and KCS – Kerite strengthens its leadership as a global competitor in the field of underground transmission and distribution power cable, and is well prepared for a strong future in the industry.
In addition to presenting its new brand image at POWER-GEN this year, Kerite will be featuring its industry-leading underground and subsea HV cable products. Kerite HV cable comes in voltages ranging from 46kV through 138kV for power transmission applications, and is engineered for the longest service life of any transmission cable. As the most flexible cable in the industry, Kerite HV cable guarantees rapid, trouble-free installation in the field, and is perfect for power lines within substations, substation getaways, subsea cable, and power to refineries and other industrial applications.
