W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) announced the addition of a new European distributor for its high speed data cables. A.E. Petsche Company will be a new qualified distributor.

“Partnering with A.E. Petsche means our European customers will have easier access to Gore’s proven solutions through a reputable distributor,” said Ivan Sacchi, channel manager for EMEA with Gore. “AEP is a leading supplier of high performance aircraft wire and cable, and Pansystem—part of AEP—was already one of our authorized distributors, so we’re increasing the level of collaboration available. We’re thrilled to be able to extend our partnership to AEP in Europe.”

Gore’s solutions solve complex aircraft routing challenges and deliver installed performance for life. The selection includes fiber optic cables, Ethernet cables, quad cables, HDMI cables, USB cables, shielded twisted pair cables and more.

Gore’s cable protection systems offer some of the highest levels of protection for packaging copper wires and fiber optics, while Gore’s abrasion resistant cable jacket offers the highest level of abrasion and cut-through resistance available from aerospace component manufacturers.

“Gore is renowned for the high quality of its wires and cables,” said Stefano Vitone, general manager for southern Europe for A.E. Petsche. “Extending our collaboration with Gore across Europe allows us to offer more complete solutions to the modern challenges facing the aerospace and defense industries.”

According to the company website, AEP’s high-quality products, produced by leading manufacturers, are designed for applications where the choice of conductor, insulation, shielding or jacketing is crucial for operational safety and performance.
