In 1937, Roy Richards simply wanted to erect poles and string wire so his grandmother could read under electric light, so he started a company to do just that. On March 23, 1950, he expanded on that dream and founded Southwire Company, LLC. In that same spirit we’ve grown into one of the leading suppliers of wire & cable in North America.
We manufacture 1/2 of the cable used in the transmission & distribution of electricity across America, 1/3 of homes contains our electrical wiring, and more than 1/2 of the copper rod made around the world is produced with Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR®) technology.
