    questions you should be asking your industrial supplier

    40 Years in the Making

    Founded in 1979 in Cleveland, Ohio, TPC Wire & Cable was originally a spin-off of Cadillac Electric under Premier Industrial Corporation, with warehouse operations based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Growing quickly in 1986, the TPC warehouse was relocated to a larger facility in Mentor, Ohio.

    Since then, TPC has continued to scale up through a series of acquisitions and expansion into international sales with the establishment of distributors and assembly services in Mexico, Canada and South Korea.

    Through all of this growth and expansion, TPC has stayed firmly rooted in its original values and continues to operate out its company headquarters in Northeast Ohio.
