TPC Wire & Cable was founded in 1979 and was originally a spin-off of Cadillac Electric under Premier Industrial Corporation, based in Detroit Michigan as a distributor of premium, ruggedized wire and cable products. Their focus was on steel, auto, utility and diversified manufacturing end markets.
Growing quickly, TPC relocates to Cleveland, OH in 1982, and by 1986, TPC moved to a larger facility in Mentor, Ohio. Today, TPC’s headquarters are located in Macedonia, OH with all its operations consolidated under one roof in a renovated 120,000-square-foot facility.
Since the start, TPC has continued to grow through a series of acquisitions and expansion into many different wire and cable markets and has grown 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 is committed to supplying customers with quality wire and cable products and solutions.
