It is with the deepest regret that we announce the passing of Ali Shehab, President of Cimteq, on Wednesday, 1st September 2021, following a battle with cancer.

Ali was a well-known and much-respected individual within the wire and cable industry, and we are certain that his friends and colleagues from across the industry will join the Cimteq family in mourning his loss and extending heartfelt sympathies to Ali’s wife Amanda and his wider family.

Ali founded Cimteq in 1998 and helped some of the world’s largest wire and cable manufacturers through his dedication, expert knowledge and desire to make a difference in the industry.

Ali’s fascination with electricity and his passion for innovation was evident throughout his career. Alongside Amanda, Ali drove Cimteq forward, developing a business that has become one of the industry’s leading suppliers.

Ali will be sorely missed.

Those wishing to pay their respects are invited to email their thoughts to:

All messages will be warmly received and will be forwarded to Amanda.

The family would prefer not to receive flowers but would rather a donation be made to RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) A JustGiving page has been set up in memory of Ali.
