A Year in Review: The Top 8 Accomplishments of 2018

Posted by TPC Wire & Cable Corp. on January 25, 2019


There is no doubt that 2018 was a whirlwind here at TPC Wire & Cable Corp. From a year of great growth to winning our first NorthCoast 99 award to focusing in on some new markets as a company, we came out better for both our employees and our customers. Watch the below video to learn more about TPC and how we serve our customers in North America and beyond.

 

 

  1. We expanded our existing warehouse space by 14,000 square feet and dedicated the extra room to manufacturing custom-molded cable assemblies, power cords, and cord sets for OEMs after a 2017 acquisition positioned our company for a faster path toward continued growth.

  2. Getting the culture right at TPC has been no small undertaking throughout the years, but we knew we got it right when we received our first-ever NorthCoast 99 award – a true testament to the hard work put in by so many at our organization. To win this award, we were evaluated based on how our company compared to other organizations in Northeast Ohio in the areas of challenging and meaningful work, compensation and benefits, work-life balance, and more.

    We even brought home the award for being the top mid-sized organization to work for in Northeast Ohio – yes!!!

  3. As we got deeper into the marine industry, we found that one of the main challenges these customers had was the large amount of moisture their electrical connections faced. Combating extreme environments is what we do, so we were confident that we could address their challenges with a longer-lasting solution. It took many months of communication between the shipyard, various crews, and our in-house engineers and sales associates to create a customized solution, but the customer was so pleased that a $4,000 order followed.

    While it’s a little too early to measure the test of time, check out this case study to see how we saved another shipyard $286,000 in two years by simply swapping out their weld cable:

  4. We pride ourselves on being problem-solving innovators, and that’s just what we did by adding six new and improved products to our portfolio to better serve our customers:

  5. Because we love hearing from our customers, we expanded our social media reach on our LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook pages. As a result, our following has expanded over 100% in 2018 alone!

  6. We like to give back all year long and have
    a team dedicated to finding these opportunities in our community. One of our most rewarding chances to help others came around Christmas when we donated 13 bikes to a local shelter along with $200 in gift donations, $400 in employee donations, and a day of volunteering to help local families shop for the holidays.

  7. Our employees have been a huge contributing factor to our growth and a core piece to TPC’s overall success. When we decided to renovate the lobby to make our entrance more “grand” for everyone passing through, we knew we wanted our mission, vision, and values reflected and we knew we wanted our employees personally involved. Our president suggested that everyone sign and affix a small piece of cable to the reception desk as a thank you and a permanent memory of their hard work. Here are some snapshots of history in the making:

  8. We can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2018 than with another acquisition. In November, we acquired Milrail – a North American specialty supplier of wire, cable, interconnect devices, and grounding systems to the rail, transit and military markets.

    TPC President & CEO Jeff Crane explained, “We continue to execute our strategy of building on what is already one of North America’s leading wire and cable suppliers. TPC and Milrail share an approach of using high-quality, innovative solutions to solve complex customer problems. We are excited and committed to expanding Milrail’s product and service reach, delivering their great tradition of quality to even more customers throughout North America.”

    With such a strong end to 2018, we can’t wait to see what 2019 holds!
