GENERAL CABLE CORPORATION ISO 9000 REGISTRATION

 HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- General Cable Corporation (NASDAQ: GENC), Highland Heights, Ky., announced today that its Carol Cable unit in the United Kingdom has been recognized for achieving compliance with leading international quality management standards of the International Organization for Standardization ("ISO") under ISO Standard 9002. General Cable also announced that it is seeking to register a number of its other facilities under these international standards. ISO standards are widely established in Western Europe and an ISO Series 9000 standards registration is becoming increasingly important to U.S. manufacturers in domestic and global markets as an indication of a firm's commitment to quality in manufacturing.
 ISO, the standards organization, is based in Geneva and has a membership of some 90 nations, which act through committees whose work is published as international standards. The ISO Series 9000 standards were developed in 1987 to improve and control the quality of products with the objective of satisfying customer needs and expectations. Registration under these standards requires an accredited independent third party to conduct an on-site audit of company operations against the requirements of the standard. General Cable's scope of registration to ISO Standard 9002 in the United Kingdom includes the manufacture of ignition lead assemblies for the automotive industry, which General Cable produces in Wollaston, United Kingdom.
 General Cable manufactures and markets electrical, electronic and telecommunications wire and cable under the Carol Cable(A), Capital Wire & Cable, Romex(A), Saturday's Helper(A), Philadelphia Insulated Wire and General Cable brand names for the construction, consumer, automotive, original equipment manufacturer, and telecommunications markets.
