Where Local Meets Global

Quabbin Wire and Cable Co is a local business operating in a global industry. The company was founded by President Paul Engel in 1975 using $15,000 of borrowed money.

The company started out in Ware, Massachusetts and, despite enormous growth in an ever-changing industry, still calls the place home.
