Southwire Company become Official Partner of Envision Racing

Southwire to join Envision Racing in the Race Against Climate Change. North America’s leading wire and cable company is playing a starring role in electrifying the planet and has joined up with one of Formula E’s leading teams to continue powering that transformation.

Envision Racing is thrilled to announce a multi-year alliance with North America’s leading wire and cable company, Southwire.

Southwire’s vision – We Deliver Power… Responsibly® – is rooted in their sustainability credentials and makes them a perfect fit for Envision Racing as the greenest team on the greenest grid. 

As the Wire & Cable Provider to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Southwire has been actively supporting grid modernisation throughout North America, helping navigate the complexities that exist with building a sustainable EV charging infrastructure in North America.

Collaborating with a team in the all-electric championship gives Southwire scope to go further, working with US-based OEMs and associated suppliers to develop innovative systems and solutions directly for its domestic market, as the need for sustainable mobility solutions becomes ever more important in our daily lives. 

A family business to this day, Southwire wire and cable can be found in almost 50% of houses built in the United States, and they produce half of the cable used to transmit and distribute electricity throughout the nation. Southwire’s products play a key role in the manufacturing of other products across the automotive sector too, offering exceptional quality, and innovative solutions.

Franz Jung, President AESC Europe and UK; VP of Envision Energy; and Chairman of the Board, Envision Racing said: “I am delighted to welcome Southwire as an Official Partner to our team. We look forward to working with them as they revolutionise and build the infrastructure required for the future of electric vehicle adoption.”

Sylvain Filippi, Managing Director and CTO, added: “We look forward to supporting them as they develop solutions and products that can accelerate the transition to clean, secure and affordable renewable energy and speed up the mass adoption of e-mobility.” 

“As Southwire continues to pursue our commitment to remain generationally-sustainable for the next 100 years and beyond, we are inspired by Envision Racing and the broader Envision Group’s passion and dedication to create a world of beautiful energy,” said Burt Fealing, Southwire’s Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Sustainability Officer.

“Southwire and Envision Racing are working toward a common goal – to reduce our carbon footprints and create solutions that allow us to better connect in a more electrified world. We are thrilled to announce this alliance and look forward to driving positive change together.”
