Southwire Co. has purchased New York-based Tappan Wire & Cable Inc., which supplies the electronics, signal/control and industrial markets with cables for security and access control, coax video, fire alarm, plenums, category, home automation, etc. (Tappan also makes a variety of specialty and custom electronics cables.)

“This acquisition further strengthens our ability to provide world-class
service to our customers,” said Stuart Thorn, president and CEO of
Southwire. “Southwire can now leverage Tappan’s ability to respond to
requests for custom products, pricing and availability in the cord,
telecom and electronics product category.”

Southwire says this acquisition is a natural progression; the addition
of telecom and electronic cables “solidifies Southwire’s position as an
industry-leading manufacturer of portable cord products, while also
adding to Southwire’s ability to offer differentiated, custom products
that provide value-added benefits to end users”.

“Current Tappan customers can expect the same level of service and
product availability they are accustomed to receiving,” said Darren
Krych, president of Tappan Wire and Cable.
