July 5, 2021 – Following the approval by stockholders at a special meeting, Houston Wire & Cable Co. reports that its acquisition by OmniCable has been completed.
“We are thrilled to welcome the HWCC team to OmniCable as it brings together two winning traditions to form one world-class company,” said Greg Lampert, OmniCable president & CEO.
The combined company results in a national wire and cable redistribution industry leader that will maximize OmniCable’s and HWCC’s complementary businesses, products and national footprint to better meet the needs of both companies’ customers, says OmniCable.
The combined company also will continue Vertex, HWCC’s fastener redistribution business, and will retain both brands and its existing locations.
“Offering both brands allows our customers a choice and to work with their preferred partner,” added Lampert.
OmniCable is a redistributor of wire and cable, electrical products, and value- added services.
