AWC Relocates Wisconsin Office

Wisconsin Office

Allied is proud to announce that on Friday, October 3, 2008, our Midwestern division moved from Elkhorn, WI to a 20,000 square-foot facility in Pewaukee, WI. The building gives us space for new employees and machinery while leaving room for future growth.

"We are proud that we are moving to a larger facility. We will be adding additional equipment and stock to help better service our valued customers. It is very exciting that in less than 2 years, we have outgrown the Elkhorn plant," said Hans Nelson, Sales Manager for the Wisconsin division.

The new building is our response to our customers' biggest need: faster lead times. Thanks to unprecedented growth in all locations, AWC has been able to expand and meet these needs. We expect shipping to our customers in the Midwest and Western states to be even faster and more convenient.

Wisconsin is expanding its value-added capacities, particularly striping and re-spooling, with more space and new or upgraded machinery. Our WI branch is equipped for:

  • Striping: We can add up to three stripes to your wire and even stripe large gauge wire, from 6 - 4/0 AWG
  • Re-spooling: We can re-spool your wire or cable onto any type or size spool you need
  • Printing: We can print text in black or white and we can even order custom-print wheels for printing logos or graphics on your cable in as many colors as needed

All of Allied's customization services, from braiding and dyeing to labeling and drum-packing, help improve turn-around times so you get your customized order quicker than ever!

AWC has been growing rapidly over the past couple of years. This move follows the relocation of our headquarters in PA just last winter. We know that we owe our success to our loyal customers, and we truly thank you for sticking with Allied.

The new facility is located at:

W233 N2870 Roundy Circle West
Pewaukee, WI 53072

Halloween Treat or Treat

Halloween should be spooky, but it can be a scary time for parents. Allied wants to help make sure this Halloween is a safe one for every child. Here are some simple suggestions to make sure your night is scary in all the right ways:

  • Make sure costumes fit well and are weather-appropriate
  • Have every person (even the little ones!) carry a light
  • Plan your path ahead of time and arrange rest stop locations
  • Always inspect the candy and throw out any unwrapped or suspicious pieces
  • Only visit well-lit homes, and keep yours lit for trick-or-treaters, too!
  • Buy costumes made of flame-retardant fabric
  • Set a curfew - and stick to it!
