Mayflex was formed in 1917 in Birmingham, England and over that time the business has evolved dramatically from selling Swan Kettles, Switchgear Cables and associated products to electrical, voice and coaxial cabling. Over the last two decades the focus has been on copper and fibre cabling, racks, Ethernet switches, wireless and IP Security.
