Warehouse Expansion

We are proud to announce that the warehouse expansion we began last year has finished and we've begun moving new stock into the new space. The addition has given us 33% more space for added stock and new stocking options so we can provide faster turnaround times for all of our customers.

Allied's Headquarters location is now 101,000 total square feet, with the warehouse consisting of 73,500 square feet alone. In addition to increasing overall stock, we plan on offering more stock product options so we can provide you with the best customer service possible. Products that could take days to ship out from other wire and cable companies can be shipped out same day with the new space, added stock, and our "In By 1, Consider it Done" guarantee.

For more information on the new stock options we have, please contact your Allied Sales Rep to see what new requirements they can get for you, or send us an RFQ online now.



Product Spotlight Video Series

Allied Wire & Cable Presents 'Spotlight On' Video Series

Started last month, our newest educational video series "Product Spotlight" details the attributes of some of our most popular products. Each video is around one minute long and includes information on the construction, ratings, and usage of each wire.

We currently have 3 series completed and up on our YouTube channel:

  • PVC Hook Up Wire - This series contains 3 videos, with each containing information on a different UL Style: UL 1007, UL 1015, and UL 1061
  • Coax– Containing 4 videos on popular coaxial cable, learn all about RG142, RG174, RG174B/U, and RG179
  • Portable Cord – The newest of the series begins with a basic Overview of Portable Cord, and then goes into more detail with SJOOW and SOOW.

You can find all of our videos on the AWC YouTube Channel or on our Facebook Page.



Great Deals Waiting in the Bargain Bin

Bargain Bin

With all of the added space in our warehouse, we'll continue having more items to add to our Bargain Bin. If you haven't checked it out before, our Bargain Bin is the place where we offer up odd lengths of wire and cable at discounted prices.

We currently have various UL Hook Up Wire, Mil-Spec Hook Up, Building Wire and Automotive Wire products for sale in the Bargain Bin. And don't worry about settling on color; we have both solid colors and stripes for sale. If you're looking for just a small section of wire for an emergency, or a one-off project, or if you're trying to save some money and don't need continuous lengths, make sure you check out the Bargain Bin. If the item you need is in the Bargain Bin but you don't want to purchase online, you can also make a deal with your sales rep.

Make a bookmark for the Bargain Bin section of our website, at https://www.awcwire.com//bargain-bin or watch for the "Bargain Bin" symbol on our parts page to see what lengths we have available.

*Not all products will have bargain bin items. Any items in the bin won't last for long, and are subject to prior sale.

Joke of the Month!


Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office. "Boss," he says, "we're doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."

"We're short-handed, Smith" the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."

"Thanks, boss," says Smith "I knew I could count on you!"
