Allied Wire & Cable is proud to announce the acquisition of Progressive Wire & Cable, finalized on April 12, 2012. With the acquisition, Allied expands into Florida, Georgia, and Texas.
The Tampa, FL facility, Progressive’s former headquarters, is Allied’s first southern stocking location. The new warehouse allows for shorter lead times and more stock availability for Allied’s customers in the southeastern US, who had been served primarily by the PA warehouse.
Tim Flynn, CEO of Allied Wire & Cable, says “Our customers kept asking us when we were going to open a branch in the Southeast. We have answered their call. We are very excited about the expansion, which will mean even better, faster service for our customers down South.”
Allied also gains office locations in Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA. Additional sales staff in these, and the Florida facility, bring personalized service closer to home for many of Allied’s customers. The new members of the Allied team will be able to maintain the personal relationships Allied prides itself in, without sacrificing response time.
Progressive has been distributing wire and cable since 2005. With a focus on the industrial, commercial, utility, and government markets, the Progressive reps specialize in building cable, tray cable, and cordage. Allied is happy to add such great experience and product knowledge to its team of wire and cable experts, while providing Progressive’s existing customers with access to a much larger, more diverse inventory.
The acquisition is only Allied’s most recent sign of growth, finalized just a year and a half after the opening of its West Coast branch in Las Vegas, Nevada. Allied is proud of its continued growth and looks forward to serving the southern US better and faster than ever.
