Mr. Hongbo Cao, Chairman and CEO of BEFUT International Co., Ltd., commented, “With China’s large and increasing demand for cable and wire products, we are rapidly gaining domestic market share as evidenced by a 41 percent increase in year-over-year sales this quarter. In order to accommodate this growing demand, we recently added new production facilities, which significantly expand our capacity. We are currently operating at just 60 percent of total capacity, which should allow us to gain operating leverage and significantly increase our profitability as we continue to grow.

“In addition to our traditional cable, we are focusing on growing our high margin specialty cable products. We have a very strong R&D team and continue to introduce new products to the market based on our customers’ needs. We now have 7 approved patents and 25 pending patents. In particular, our carbon fiber and other specialty cables incorporate unique technology that makes them lighter with better electrical conductivity. We will continue to strengthen our research team and develop new hi-tech cables. We believe this approach will help further differentiate us from competitors and enable us to capture additional market share in China.

“Looking ahead, we have aggressive sales and marketing initiatives underway,” he concluded. “Demand within China is driven by increased construction and infrastructure development. We are adding new sales reps and sales offices across China. We are also expanding into new domestic markets such as submarine and ‘new energy’ cables.”
