Tratos has been delivering global cable solutions and unrivalled engineering expertise since 1966.
Deeply ingrained in Tratos’ culture is its commitment to exceptionally high standards. The company’s competitive strength is a result of its focus on innovation, along with skills, expertise, clear objectives, dedicated staff and offices across the globe to maintain direct contact with its customers.
While Tratos is a technology and innovation-led business, its strength lies in its focus on people. Its culture is defined by people. It is committed to the continual development of its people and prefers to work closely with customers. A family-owned business, Tratos is always looking for original thinking and values different and fresh perspectives that enrich the company.
Tratos is just as serious about the environment and its impact on it, the people who contribute to the business and the people outside it in the communities that will benefit from the local economy uplift around the company’s factories. The company is particularly interested in finding factory bases in areas where it will have a positive effect – bringing much needed work. It aims to ensure all its factories and people maintain its mission to support local economies and create jobs delivering high quality products.
Tratos offers reliable and consistent products, often on short lead times, from an efficient, ethical organisation focused on service, advanced technologies and innovation.
The latest generation of Tratos cables, selling across 52 countries, combine tested manufacturing techniques with state-of-the-art technology, resulting in incredible strength and flexibility. Working with customers the company will create bespoke cables for any application.
Tratos can add any number of different components to a customer’s cable, making each uniquely fit for purpose, whilst meeting national and international standards and directives.
Tratos adds value by offering customers advice on the right cable choice for any project or specification – however challenging the requirements – backed with readily-available technical support.
Seeing good practices at work every day encourages people to embrace them.
Leadership by example is a clear invitation for others to strive to be the best they can be. Continuous learning is part of the Tratos culture, and it starts at the top. Our director and members of the staff studied for their MBA at Cass Business School, London, and all board members have now embarked on a chartered directorship with the IOD. Tratos set up the Tratos Academy to inspire innovation and ambition and encourage people within the company to stretch themselves and be part of making a difference.
Pure innovation requires a culture free from blame. Mistakes are an important part of innovation. By teaching us what not to do, we learn what works – and that’s what keeps the world moving. Tratos invests in people with ideas and ability. We give talent the oxygen and the space to burn brightly.
‘Tratos’ inclusion policies go further. The focus is always to share with stakeholders, to increase the value of the company for employees, suppliers, the local community and support initiatives within it.
‘Looking after your most valuable asset is important. My sister Elisabetta Bragagni Capaccini works tirelessly to ensure people are protected and, consequently, know that they are valued.
‘Rewards, feeling valued, being protected with stringent Health & Safety practices, and being a part of something bigger – the production of high quality and environmentally-sympathetic technologies that keep the world moving – resonate with people. Engaged staff who enjoy their work are worth the investment.
‘At Tratos there is a strong policy structure. I am proud to say we are a company with clear shared leadership. Those values and aims that Egidio held fast to and sought to protect as the company grew included honesty and fairness – his legacy is still a goal for our business. To truly innovate something that will make a positive different requires trust and respect. We strive to make ours a sustainable and ethical business. To do that we have to be confident that our actions, and the actions of those within our supply chain are appropriate, fair and compliant.
Tratos’ values are founded on people, principles and participation: look after people, maintain the highest principles and share.
