The idea for the Company was conceived in 1981, when Dr. (Engr.) Ajulu Uzodike decided to leave Raychem Corporation, a major international manufacturer of aircraft & military wires and accessories, to set up an indigenous firm to manufacture electrical cables and switchgear assemblies. Adtec Ltd, a venture capital and management firm, which was incorporated in 1978, started the two projects as separate divisions in 1982. CUTIX PLC was incorporated on November 4, 1982 as a Private Limited Company, manufacturing electric cables and wires.
Cutix Plc started manufacturing at Nnewi in a 1,000m2 facility she rented from Adtec Limited. By 2009, we moved all our machinery to our own factory premises and head office at 17 Osita Onyejianya Street, Umuanuka, Otolo, Nnewi. Production now goes on at the new site, which has about 6,000m2 covered area while the head office complex stands adjacent to the production plant.
The new plant under construction covers an area of 5500m2. The company’s water borehole and 1,500KVA generators are in place to serve the company. The company has delivery trucks to serve the distributors spread across Nigeria. There are also sales offices of the company at Nnewi, Aba, Abuja, Kaduna, Lagos and Uyo.
