Allied Wire & Cable (AWC), a family-owned and operated specialty manufacturer and distributor of electrical wire, cable, tubing, and accessories in the government, military, aerospace, automotive, and telecommunications industries, celebrated the opening of a new warehouse and office in Grapevine, TX. In an effort to accommodate rapid expansion within the industry as a whole and to accelerate growth in the region, AWC acquired The Wire Connection, a distributor of Milspec, aviation and marine wire.
It immediately began plans for this new site, a 35,000-sq-ft warehouse, stocked full of wire & cable and several value-added service machines. The new site complements other AWC warehouses around the U.S. in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida, by supporting growth and best-in-class service to customers.
“The decision to expand our presence into Texas was a strategic step in our business growth strategy,” said Al Pape, CEO, in the press release. “We’re based just outside of Philadelphia, PA, but have many warehouses in other locations placed across the country. By including a warehouse in Grapevine, Texas, we are able to guarantee access to a larger inventory and offer rapid shipping to our customers.”
With the full integration of the two organizations now complete, customers can now expect to see increased availability, faster fulfillment and broader product offerings. “We have the opportunity to further expand staffing and capabilities in our, value-added services and customer support departments, as well as increase our ability to service current and future markets.”
