Our heritage spans almost eight decades. We trace our history back to 1930, when the Essex Wire Corporation was founded in Detroit, Michigan. That company later relocated to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Superior Cable was founded in 1954, in Hickory, North Carolina. In 1998, Superior TeleCom (formerly Superior Cable) acquired Essex International (formerly Essex Wire) and formed Superior Essex, which is now based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Essex Wire Corporation was founded in 1930 as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for some of the first Fords to roll off the assembly line. By 1965, it had grown to a company with $355 million in sales and 44 plants in North America.
At Superior Essex, we employ over 4,100 people around the globe. Through teamwork and a commitment to quality and unparalleled customer service our employees have helped make us one of the largest manufactures of wire and cable products in the world.
Teamwork defines our success at Superior Essex and we recognize the special talents each member brings to our team. That’s why at Superior Essex we reward our employees with competitive pay and benefits, state-of-the-art technology and opportunities for development and advancement.
