Randy Butler from Superior Essex discusses smart buildings and why they are safer, more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable. Using building automation and intelligent sensors leads to more control and efficiency of big systems. System installation and operation is found to be less expensive upfront and leads to efficient long-term use.


For over 90 years, Superior Essex has forged a path by meeting and exceeding the wire and cable requirements for the automotive, industrial, commercial, residential, energy and communications markets.

We proudly trace our history back to 1930, when the Essex Wire Corporation was founded in Detroit, Michigan. Meanwhile, Superior Cable Corporation was founded in 1954, in Hickory, North Carolina. After many years of growth and change, in 1999, Superior TeleCom (formerly Superior Cable) acquired Essex International (formerly Essex Wire) and together they formed the company we are globally known as today – Superior Essex – now based in Atlanta, Georgia.

We continue to expand our product portfolio globally with new innovations and manufacturing throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Thanks to strategic acquisitions focused on future-forward communications technology development and product sustainability, Superior Essex Communications has positioned itself as the industry leader of communications cable product innovation, design and manufacturing.
