Identification: Does your cable have more than 10 colored conductors? We can add a contrasting stripe to help you identify the proper conductors for easier installation. And if you’re looking to have your cables labeled, we can ink jet and hot stamp text right onto the jacket or insulation of your cable for you.

Installation: Save time on installation by having the cable pre-cut and stripped so it’s ready to go when you get to the job site. We can also twist your cable in house before we ship, so you never have to waste time grouping different cables together.

Shipping: We can custom package your order in special reels, drums and plastic containers to suit your needs. And if you need your order drop shipped, we can package it in blank boxes so your customer only sees your name.

That’s not all; check out the video to see more identification, installation, shipping and other solutions to find out all the ways Allied can make your job easier.
