Mineral Insulated cable dates as far back as 1896 with the first patented design by the Swiss Inventor Arnold Francois Borel. By the early 1930s mass production of Mineral Insulated cable had commenced by the French company Societe Alascienne de Construction Mecanique. By 1937 Pyrotenax purchased the patent to commence production in the UK. Pyrotenax merged with BICC to become the world’s largest manufacturer of Mineral Insulated cable.
In 2001 MICC was formed from the ashes of BICC. MICC is now the world’s largest manufacturer of Mineral Insulated cable, not only for electrical wiring, but also for temperature measurement and trace heating solutions. Still based in the North East of the United Kingdom, the MICC Group manufacturers, designs and installs the full range of MI to a global market.
In 2016 the MICC group welcomed its next expansion, into the United States of America launching MICC Manufacturing Corporation (MMC). This is the next stage for the MICC Group’s growth plans.
MMC currently will distribute the large range of products and services that is manufactured in MICC headquarters in the North East of the UK. Providing the world’s largest range of temperature measurement mineral insulated cable.
Plans are already being made to further our expansion in the United States by way of our own manufacturing facility, this will provide our customers with even more competitive prices, reduced lead times and the very best locally based customer service.
