Allied Wire and Cable Company History

Our Humble Beginnings...

Allied Wire & Cable came from very humble beginnings in a family basement in Wayne, PA, where the owners did everything from ordering materials and making sales calls, to spooling the wire themselves. Since the company’s start in 1988, Allied has grown into one of the largest independent distributors of wire and cable in the country, providing our customers with outstanding quality, service, and pricing.

From the family basement, the company moved to a warehouse and office facility in Bridgeport, PA, followed soon after with a move to a state-of-the-art facility in Phoenixville, PA. In just five years, the company outgrew that location, and moved yet again to our current home in Collegeville, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. In 2012, an addition on the 80,000 square foot facility brought our headquarters to over 101,000 total square feet; 73,500 square feet of which is warehouse space.

Today, Allied has sales offices in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Tennessee, and Nevada, and warehouses across the US, allowing for the quickest delivery times in the industry. We are proud to serve customers around the world, and were recognized as one of Pennsylvania’s “Faces of Trade” by the US Chamber of Commerce for our international trade efforts.

Allied Wire & Cable has also been recognized by the Inc. 5000 and Philadelphia 100 “Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies” lists, and consistently ranks on Electrical Wholesaling’s “Top 200 Distributors” list.

With a $50 million inventory, Allied Wire and Cable serves all major markets with common wire, cable, tubing, and accessories, as well as hard-to-find parts. If the product you need is not in stock, we will find it for you. We are an authorized distributor for many manufacturers, and can provide brand name cable or cost-effective equals to meet your needs. Allied also offers value-added and custom cable design and manufacturing services, so meeting your requirements is never a problem.

Over the years, the Allied family has expanded to include a team much larger than the owners alone. Thanks to the dedication and industry knowledge of Allied employees, the company has been able to enjoy unprecedented growth, with the very same owners at the helm. We are thankful for the growth we have seen, and never forget that Allied is here because of you, our customers. So thank you, and here’s to many more years of working together!
