REDUCING YOUR INVENTORY INVESTMENT

Large projects require large quantities of products throughout their lifetime.

We work on your schedule, not ours, and deliver right to your job site. Our experienced sales staff has a vast knowledge of specialized cable for the oil and gas industry. We offer a stable inventory of state-of-the-art drilling rig cables in a wide array of constructions, including single- and multi-conductor power and control sizes, as well as instrumentation, and ruggedized data comm and fiber optic cables available both armored and sheathed, and unarmored constructions.
