TPC Wire & Cable Corp. (TPC), Macedonia, Ohio, acquired Milrail, Inc., a Canada-based supplier of wire, cable, interconnect devices and grounding systems to the rail, transit and military markets.
“We continue to execute our strategy of building on what is already one of North America’s leading wire and cable suppliers,” says Jeff Crane, president and CEO of TPC. “TPC and Milrail share an approach of using high-quality, innovative solutions to solve complex customer problems. We are excited and committed to expand Milrail’s product and service reach, delivering their great tradition of quality to even more customers throughout North America.”
