History of Sicame Australia


The Beginning of Sicame Australia

Australia Pty Ltd was originally established as a private business in the mid 1980s as Rooney North Johnson and established itself as a supplier of line equipment to the Australian utility industry. By the late 1980s it was partially acquired by Sicame Group and started local manufacturing and assembly as RNJ Sicame.

By the 1990s the ‘Sicame Group had fully acquired the company as Sicame Australia Pty Ltd. With the drive, enthusiasm and dedication of a small team focused on growing a long-term business, the organization expanded and dominated the new emerging market of LVABC connector equipment in Australia.

The Product Beginning

With a strong reputation as the leading manufacturer and supplier of Low Voltage Aerial Bundled Cable (LVABC) Insulation Piercing Connectors and associated equipment. The Company has invested heavily in engineering and research and development in the field of insulation piercing and waterproof technology and is considered a world leader in this field for LV system connectors.

Sicame Australia has expanded its product range utilizing it’s advanced technology to develop an innovative and cutting edge range of connectors that are fully insulated and waterproof without the need to strip the outer insulation within the underground market. These products are made for the local Australian market and a special range of fitting was developed for the USA market. In April 2006 the company started exporting to the USA and has not only maintained this to the present date but also have added additional product to the USA export range. Other new markets and products have been developed for underground systems and exported to the UK, Europe and now India.

Emerging Markets

With the ever increasing competitive nature of the electrical utility market in Australia and a shrinking customer base by the amalgamation of customers, it is important that Sicame Australia continually expands it’s range and is focused on a broader market. Sicame has acquired Argenton Engineering who is the distributor for CATU Safety equipment (a subsidiary of Sicame Group) and manufactured Earthing systems. This acquisition has resulted in an expansion into the electrical safety market and has assisted Sicame to extend its range of products. Sicame now supply Earthing and safety equipment to nearly every utility in Australia with exports to New Zealand. In line with this market expansion Sicame Australia entered the Commercial and Industrial market supplying the range of Mecatraction, Catu and specialist Sicame products and this market will be a focus in the year’s ahead.
