Collegeville, PA, June, 2013 – Allied Wire & Cable is one of ten companies now QPL approved for many constructions of M27500 cable.

As of May 29, 2013, Allied Wire & Cable meets QPL approval for manufacturing M27500 cable in accordance with WC27500-2012. QPL approved M27500 products include a wide variety of constructions in sizes ranging from 30 to 4/0 AWG.

All QPL approved manufacturers must be compliant with WC27500-2012 Rev A by October 1, 2013, but because the company has met all requirements for the standard, QPL M27500 cables are available now from Allied Wire & Cable.

“This is a great achievement for Allied and we’re really proud of it. Qualifying for approval this early was part of a great effort from our manufacturing team, and we look forward to supplying the QPL wire and cable needs of our customers even more so than before,” said Allied Wire & Cable co-owner, Tim Flynn.

Through a thorough testing and evaluation process, these products have been determined by the US Department of the Navy to meet all necessary specifications for QPL approval. Because M27500 parts from Allied Wire are included on the Qualified Products List (QPL), buyers can procure the wire with confidence in its quality and performance, without having to wait for additional testing or evaluation of the products.

Allied Wire & Cable is one of the first ten companies to get the QPL designation. As a distributor and specialty manufacturer, Allied is able to offer customers the benefits of a “one-stop shop,” supplying custom manufactured QPL M27500 cable in addition to offering one of the largest inventories of standard mil spec wire and cable products in the US.

Because of the company’s emphasis on personal service and customization, Allied also offers a level of flexibility in ordering that sets it apart from many other QPL sources. Allied’s Vice President of Operations, Jim Thivierge, explains, “AWC can run long or short lengths. Our low order minimums eliminate the need to deal with large min buy requirements of other QPL approved manufacturers. Customers get the QPL wire they need with short lead times and without having to buy thousands of feet of extra product. That’s a huge factor with customers’ budgets and inventory control.”

As a value-added manufacturer, Allied also offers customization services such as striping, custom labeling, and more, so customers receive the wire and cable exactly as needed.

Allied Wire & Cable is proud of its QPL approval and looks forward to the affect it will have on making the buying experience even more convenient for its customers.
