Our founder, Thomas P. Andrews Sr. had great vision. Mr. Andrews was a Korean war veteran, CCNY graduate as well as a member of the Harvard Law class of 1954. He went into private business when he was offered sales management opportunities at Amphenol, Westinghouse, ITT and Phalo Corp.
In 1966, he formed United Wire and Cable which was a major distributor of aerospace mil spec wire and also was a manufacturer’s rep for Teledyne Thermatics. He won a number of awards in the wire and cable industry along the way for his sales success.
In 1985, he decided to pursue manufacturing cable so he purchased General Wire Products and streamlined the business to what it is a today, a leading edge custom cable manufacture. Tom worked very hard and made many sacrifices to have a successful business. He retired from the business in the early 90’s but never was more than a phone call away offering advice to current management.
Tom passed away in 2008 but his knowledge of the industry and sales were shared with all of his employees. He accomplished so many goals over his super successful career in wire and cable.
Currently, his son Thomas P Andrews Jr. is the President and his daughter Nancy Andrews is Vice President of General Wire Products, Inc. We are here to serve you.
