The Power of One. General Cable Corporation's signature line emphasized and reinforced the strength of its One Company approach to business. One Company — with all the power of its products, know-how, services, systems and people focused and ready to meet competitive challenges. One Source — providing customers all of the wire and cable products they need-seamlessly and efficiently. One Team — committed to the highest level of customer satisfaction, backed by leading-edge technology, manufacturing, distribution and customer service. Number One - the leader in wire and cable for wholesalers, retailers, telephone companies, OEMs, contractors and "do-it-yourselfers," with a rich, 150-year history.
From supplying the wire used by Samuel Morse for the historic communications link-up between Washington and Baltimore in 1844, to providing the power cable from the Hoover Dam to Los Angeles, to wiring the Statue of Liberty twice — first in 1886 and again for the centennial celebration in 1986, General Cable has had a hand in creating historical, technological moments for over a century.
General Cable Corporation has always been a front-runner in the development, design, manufacture, marketing, and distribution of copper, aluminum, and fiber optic wire and cable products for the communications, energy and electrical markets.
