Bill Hendrix founded Hendrix Wire & Cable, Inc. in 1951. His mission was to manufacture and market an overhead electrical distribution system (Spacer Cable) he invented. The system solved the reliability problems that local utilities were experiencing at the time. The Spacer Cable proved to greatly reduce power outages caused by various elements in the environment. Other benefits soon recognized included less tree trimming, reduced right of way concerns, ease of operation in contaminated environments, and the ability to span cable over a long distance. In the long run, all of these factors contributed to overall lower operating costs. In 1967 Hendrix expanded his product line by entering the underground cable market. Mr. Hendrix introduced HQ200, which required corona free cable, to the industry. Hendrix established a testing protocol, which required each reel of cable to be tested to 200V per mil with a partial discharge of less than 5 picocoulombs. Eighteen years later, the AEIC adopted the test procedure and made it an industry standard. Other Hendrix innovations include a true triple extruder (1987), EZ strip (1988), and a patented compound handling system to minimize contamination (1994). Today, the Hendrix Wire & Cable product line includes underground cable, spacer cable, tree wire, insulators, and other overhead accessory products. Our products are operating world-wide. They have endured an array of diversified environment elements, ranging from those found in the tropical rain forests of Brazil to the snowcaps of Antarctica. Hendrix Wire & Cable is ISO 9001 certified and continues to make quality, service and reliability a mainstay of the Hendrix philosophy. Hendrix is located in a 250,000 square foot facility in Milford, New Hampshire. All business functions including, Management, Engineering, Marketing, and Production are located at that site. Keeping all business functions close to the production floor allows for the flexibility needed to excel in customer service. The facility contains an engineering lab capable of performing the industry design tests as well as routine electrical and physical testing. The plant equipment includes a patented world class compound handling system, true triple continuous vulcanization lines, thermoplastic extrusion lines, neutral and jacketing lines, and injection molding equipment. In 1996 Hendrix began a major facility expansion. This expansion includes a re-layout of the facility, the addition of drawing and stranding equipment to complete conductor production in house, increased capacity, updated equipment, and a broadening of the product scope.
