CableLAN Nuclear was formed in 2015 as a sister company to CableLAN Products. But our roots extend back to the 1970’s!
With a strong engineering and manufacturing background in electrical and fiber optic cables for nuclear plants, , we first produced fiber cables for the nuclear industry in 1979. In 1984, recognizing the outstanding potential for fiber optic communications, Jan Pirrong started Chromatic Technologies, which quickly grew to be a top 3 producer of fiber optic cables in the USA. Through a series of corporate mergers and acquisitions, the original business became a part of Prysmian.
In 1994, Mr. Pirrong founded CableLAN Products in Massachusetts, with a mission to provide outstanding service and value to data and telephone contractors in the Boston area. These precepts have allowed us to be the largest regional distributor of data com products in New England.
We maintain our leading presence in the nuclear market, as fiber became a factor in nuclear power plant control and communications. In 2000, we were chosen to supply the world’s first safety related fiber optic cable, for a plant in Taiwan.
Recognizing the industry’s unique requirements and its importance to our business, in 2015 CableLAN Nuclear was started to exclusively serve the nuclear power plant industry. We are the exclusive distributor of Prysmian’s cable to the nuclear industry, and work with other manufacturers for communication cables and other products for this industry.
In 2016, CableLAN Nuclear implemented its own quality assurance program the meets the requirements of 10CFR50, Appendix B and ASME NQA-1. Using this program and our experience, we are ideally positioned to meet your fiber optic and electrical cable needs, for both safety related and non-safety related applications.
Our nuclear power plant commitment includes continuing work on IEEE committees and working groups that are producing the technical standards for electrical and fiber optic cables for nuclear power plants. With a decades of experience in nuclear power plants, first as an engineer in a public utility, as a manufacturer of fiber and electrical cables for nuclear plants, as an active participant in worldwide nuclear standards and now as a distributor to the industry, CableLAN Nuclear is uniquely positioned to help find the right solution for your cable needs in nuclear power plants.
