We Deliver Power... Responsibly

With thousands of employees across the country, Southwire Company, LLC is North America's leading producer of building wire and utility cable and is a technology leader in the wire and cable industry.

Headquartered in Carrollton, Georgia, the company holds more than 240 patents in 40 countries and is a leading researcher in the development of high-temperature superconducting power cables.

Backed by a network of manufacturing facilities and distribution centers stretching from coast to coast, Southwire operates with the proven philosophy of providing the top quality products in the industry, backed by the best service available.

To reach those goals, Southwire's corporate structure centers around four distinct manufacturing segments - Energy, Electrical, OEM Rod and SCR Technologies. Each focuses on a specific group of customers, ensuring their needs are met quickly and efficiently.

A technology leader, Southwire developed the Southwire Continuous Rod® or SCR, method for casting copper and aluminum rod. Today, half of the world's copper rod is made using theSCR method. More than 70 systems operate in such countries as India, Japan, Russia, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

To ensure its divisions remain competitive, Southwire conducts advanced research at the D.B. Cofer Technology Center. One of the world’s leading centers for wire and cable technology, the Cofer center is home to Southwire’s superconducting power cable program.

Part power line and part vacuum bottle, Southwire’s superconducting cables are nearly immune to resistance, losing only about a half-percent of power during transmission. That compares with 5 to 8 percent lost by traditional power cables. Superconducting cables also deliver more power, about three to five times more power than cables in use today. By powering three of its manufacturing plants with a superconducting power delivery system, Southwire became the first to put superconducting cables to use in an industrial setting.

Southwire's effort to make things easier, both for its customers and those they serve, is a tradition dating back to that very first order Southwire produced more than a half century ago. It’s also the company’s cornerstone for the next 50 years and beyond. At Southwire, we are committed to offering the best products and service in the wire and cable industry. That's not a sales pitch. It's our promise to you.
