An Update on COVID-19

We recognize that this is an unprecedented time for everyone – a time that, for many, is filled with uncertainty.  At this time, we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our employees, customers and partners is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the changing situation by following our public health agencies and doing our part in helping keep our communities safe.

United Wire & Cable continues to operate, and we have had no major interruptions to delivery schedules at this time. Our products are manufactured in Canada and the USA and all required raw materials and components are in stock enabling us to meet demand. We do not expect any closing of the border between Canada and the USA to impact on our commercial deliveries. We are in regular contact with our manufacturing facilities and supply network to ensure deadlines continue to be met and are proactive in communicating any scheduling changes to our customers.  We are committed to keeping our customers and partners apprised of any anticipated or existing delays in a timely manner. We will do this proactively as often as possible but encourage you to check with your United Wire & Cable representative regularly for updates.

We have implemented a series of preventative measures to do our part to encourage social distancing:

  • Implementing remote work for employees were possible and social distancing for times when in person collaboration is required.
  • Restricting all non-essential work travel.
  • Encouraging employees to stay home and seek medical attention if they are sick.
  • Requiring all employees not to attend work-related trade shows, workshops or similar events.
  • Refining our business continuity plans to ensure we mitigate any potential impact to our business.

We realize this may not be the first letter of this nature that you have received, and we find it comforting to know that every business is doing their best to help contain this outbreak.  As the situation evolves, we are committed to keeping you updated on our actions and steps we are taking to keep our employees, customers and business partners safe.

Thank you for your business and continued support.

United Wire & Cable Inc. and Trenwa, Inc. announce partnership to supply MAXIAMP Underground Cable Bus Systems to customers across the US and Canada

MAXIAMP Underground Cable Bus

MAXIAMP Underground Cablebus is United Wire & Cable’s proprietary, award winning underground power feeder system that maintains a free air ampacity rating below grade. Achieving a free air rating enables the power feeder system to be designed using fewer and/or smaller power cables, resulting in less material, labor and dramatically less space required vs. traditional subterranean power feeder systems such as a duct bank (wire in conduit) system.

Trenwa, Inc. will be the supplier of precast trench as the underground containment for the MAXIAMP cable bus system.  This strategic partnership provides United Wire & Cable with a precast trench supplier that has distributed manufacturing across North America with sufficient capacity to supply their rapid growth in the market.

“We are excited to partner with Trenwa as the trench supplier for our underground cable bus systems.  Their best in class trench systems, excellent track record and their distributed manufacturing locations enable us to deliver the best quality, while ensuring we meet the short lead times demanded by our customers”, said Bill Baldasti, General Manager of United Wire & Cable.

“MAXIAMP Underground is the perfect solution for our customers that want to get away from old fashioned duct bank and achieve free air cable ampacity rating in our trench systems.  United Wire & Cable’s unique design integrates perfectly with our product line”, according to George Schurr, President of Trenwa.
