PROJECT: One World Trade Center
Working with leading New York area distributors and contractors, Service Wire Company recently completed one of its more meaningful projects in lower Manhattan. The company reports that more than a quarter million feet of Service Wire 600 Kcmil XHHW-2 cable was used in the construction of One World Trade Center. That's enough wire to stretch from Manhattan to Stamford, Connecticut.
"We are proud to have played a role in the rebirth of such a symbolic part of the New York skyline," said Tony Holderby, Service Wire's senior account manager on the job. Rising to a height of 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center has come to signify the resilience and strength not only of a city but of a nation. Its architecture is modern and contemporary, much like the city over which it casts its shadow.
The tower's rebirth is a tall reminder of the hard work and tenacity on which this country is anchored. "Because all of our products and materials are manufactured right here in the United States, we believe that adds to the significance of this accomplishment," Holderby added.
Service Wire was founded in 1968. It strategically built its manufacturing facilities and factory warehouses in locations that serve major metropolitan areas with same and next-day service. The company has enjoyed 50 years of success by sticking to its mission of manufacturing high quality goods and delivering superior service to the electrical distribution markets. This time, the Service Wire mission contributed to the construction of the tallest building in New York and helped a city rebuild.
"We are proud to have played a role in the rebirth of such a symbolic part of the New York skyline... because our products are manufactured right here in the US, that adds to the significance of this accomplishment."
