Southwire Company, LLC Key Developments

Southwire Company to Expand its Operations in Bremen

Southwire Company announced plans to expand its operations in Bremen, creating up to 105 new jobs by 2016. The company will invest $2.1 million to purchase and equip a new 48,000 square-foot facility in Bremen. The facility, which will be fully staffed bythe end of 2015, will allow the company to relocate manufacturing capacity for its original equipment manufacturer and industrial divisions to Bremen.

Southwire Expands Wire & Cable Capacity

Southwire Company, LLC is expanding building wire and feeder MC cable manufacturing capacity by renovating an existing 650,000-square-foot facility on 111 acres in Carrollton, Ga. This additional facility will enable Southwire to dramatically increase capacity, while streamlining operations to support residential and commercial construction growth to meet future customer demand for building wire and feeder MC cable products. Production has already begun at the new plant and additional equipment will be added over the coming months, making it one of the most efficient and up-to-date wire and cable manufacturing facilities in operation. Once complete, Southwire will produce several key product lines using updated equipment and manufacturing techniques. As contractors search for ways to improve safety, increase productivity and reduce costs on the job site, they will look for more cost effective material options and greater overall value from product solutions that help them add to their bottom line.

Southwire Company, LLC Launches 42 New Voice-Data-Video Tools

Southwire Company, LLC will unveil a new line of over 40 voice-data-video (VDV) tools at CEDIA Expo 2014, a showcase for new audio, video, control, networking and lighting products taking place in Denver from September 10-13. The new VDV tools complement Southwire's full line of Low-Voltage cable products and extend Southwire's innovative Tools & Equipment line, introduced in 2013. One product that exceeds expectations is the T100PK Professional Tone & Probe Kit. Market research demonstrated that installers find the test leads on most tone generators to be frustrating because they hang loose and get tangled easily with other tools in the tool bag. With an innovative tone generator design, Southwire has found a way to easily store the test leads in the tester body, completely eliminating the problem. Southwire's VDV tools include cable cutters, strippers, crimpers and punchdown tools, as well as cable tracers and testers. The Southwire Tools & Equipment product line offers a robust selection of hand tools and a professional array of meters and test equipment, as well as larger contractor equipment serving areas such as cable pulling, hole making, conduit bending and accessories used in both commercial and residential installations.
