NEWARK, NJ — US Wire & Cable Corporation has announced its strategic acquisition of Voltec Power & Lighting Corporation and its affiliates. Voltec will carry on its daily operations without any changes, and Tom Miller, who founded the company in 2001, will continue to serve as President. Both are family-owned companies with decades of experience and their new partnership strengthens their industry leadership.
With combined U.S. and overseas manufacturing capabilities, the company now has numerous advantages over the competition. Voltec’s international capability, along with its expansive power and lighting product portfolio, delivers product innovation and value. US Wire & Cable’s two domestic manufacturing facilities ensure that customers will always have the products they need, even during natural disasters and disruptive seasonal events.
“Voltec adds enormous breadth to our offering with its workplace lighting, power distribution products and high quality extension cord products,” said David Rauch, US Wire & Cable President. “Because we manufacture in the United States, we offer their customers product consistency and reliability. This is a classic case of one plus one equals more than two.”
Both companies were represented at booth #’s 1074-1080 at the 2017 STAFDA show, November 13-14 in Austin, TX. In addition to showcasing the breadth of their product lineup, they featured the latest innovations for LED workplace lighting products. LEDs’ power consumption is significantly less than traditional lighting products which provide short, as well as long-term, cost savings on the jobsite. They also spotlighted their EXTREME brand of flexible, tangle-free extension cords. These durable cords are contractor-grade, can withstand freezing cold conditions and weigh one-third less than competitive products.
According to Voltec President, Tom Miller, “US Wire & Cable’s domestic manufacturing capability means that our customers will never be without core products they require. Combined with our offshore manufacturing expertise, and our six regional stocking warehouses across the U.S., we can compete against any major manufacturer for customers who require fast delivery and high quality products. This coming together of two industry trailblazers gives our customers, both large and small, much to gain.”
