Cerro Wire Slipwire® Thhn Cable Chosen To Speed Tractor Plant Construction

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Cerro Wire LLC, a leading manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, announces that its SLiPWire® THHN cable was chosen for the construction of the new Kubota Industrial Equipment (KIE) plant in Jefferson, Georgia. Cerrowire’s value-added features, including SLiPWire®’s self-lubricating polymer and True Sequential Footage, made the installation process smoother and quicker, while maintaining low cost.

The cable was selected as part of a joint decision by Kubota Industrial Equipment, their contractor Cedartown Electric, the electrical distributor Gexpro, and distributor Electrical Products, Inc. (EPI). “The job went very smoothly,” said James Moates, Cedartown Electric’s project manager, “Cerrowire was always responsive to my needs, interested in helping me rather than simply selling products. The wire features made a huge difference on our job.”

SLiPWire® is a thermoplastic high heat-resistant nylon-coated (THHN) cable, jacketed with a self-lubricating polymer that provides an improved, low co-efficient of friction. SLiPWire® reduces the time, labor and cost for installation, eliminates the materials and labor needed for lubricating the wire, and avoids messy clean-up activities. Using pre-lubricated wire also significantly reduces the possibility of injury from slipping on spilled lubricant that would otherwise have to be transported in buckets throughout the facility.

True Sequential Footage prevents the need to carry excess cable inventory, providing precision length, accurate footage, and cost control. True Sequential Footage uses a footage mark to document remaining wire, beginning with zero at the bottom of the reel and ending with the finished length at the top. The accurate footage mark allows for quick identification of the re-order point, guaranteeing the full purchased wire length and reducing random lengths. This allows for much better control of end-of-reel scrap.

In addition, Cerrowire’s commitment to customer service and fast turn-around times impressed KIE. Cerrowire is dedicated to honoring wire footage guarantees and providing error-free shipping, and they offer emergency shipping to meet last-minute customer needs.
