Alcan Cable to consolidate North American cable production

“This decision is difficult, but has been made necessary by the prolonged poor market conditions and outlook in the market,” stated Jack Miller, President of Alcan Cable. “Moving forward, Alcan Cable will focus on its North American production at its remaining cable facilities and continue to provide high quality cable products and service to our customers.”

Alcan Cable’s focus remains on meeting the cable needs of its North American customers and ensuring a seamless transition during the plant closure process. The realignment of manufacturing operations will address the realities of the current and projected market conditions and provide Alcan Cable the flexibility to expand production capacity at its remaining cable plants.

Alcan Cable has established a severance program and an on-site out-placement center to assist employees in their transition.

Alcan Cable has provided its customers with quality products and outstanding customer service for over 100 years. With its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Alcan Cable is a leading manufacturer of aluminum cable, modular wiring systems, and rod and strip products and is recognized as the only fully integrated aluminum cable supplier in North America.
