"The Declaration of Inspiration" was the theme of the recent 16th Annual NH Economic Development Summit held at the Inns at Mill Falls in Meredith. During the event, New England Wire Technologies was named "the Commissioner's Company of the Year."
In making the announcement, NH Department of Resources & Economic Development Commissioner George Bald said, "New England Wire Technologies products are used the world-over for a variety of different industries and applications, including medical device components, the automotive industry, defense and aerospace contractors, telecommunications designers, audio/visual component manufacturers, cable assembly houses and more. Its highly regarded team of engineers has been called 'miracle workers,' having designed multiconductor cable, multiconductor cord, litz wire, high temperature electronic wire or custom cables to perform in applications that are incredibly demanding. On the business end of things, its sales office makes sure the materials are priced competitively and are shipped in a timely manner. We know of few other companies in the industry that can produce the 'Big 3' of Quality, Price and Timeliness like New England Wire Technologies."
For more than 100 years, New England Wire Technologies has worked hard to earn its reputation for superior quality and service. The company says it is especially proud that it continues to serve the children and grandchildren of some of the first people it did business with.
