Pelican Wire Completes Acquisition of Watlow High-Temp Wire Product Line

Naples, FL, September 12, 2018: Pelican Wire has completed the purchase of a portion of the SERV-RITE insulated thermocouple manufacturing business from Watlow Electric. The agreement, which includes machinery, design & manufacturing process information and customer account data, specifically effects the High Temperature Ceramic & Vitreous Silica constructions.

Pelican Wire President, Ted Bill, states “I’m excited to work with our long-time partner, Watlow Electric, to provide their customers continued superior service for these hightemperature thermocouple products. This is a great example of Pelican Wire’s ongoing commitment to the Thermocouple Wire industry.”

Watlow’s Chief System Designer Randy Brown stated "This is a very natural transition for both companies. Watlow and Pelican Wire have a long history of cooperation to ensure customers can leverage the core capabilities of both to get the best solution."

As quoted from the August 31, 2018 ‘End of Life’ (EOL) statement, “Pelican Wire will begin quoting and accepting orders on new and existing wire designs on September 17, 2018 and will begin manufacturing operations on or before October 15, 2018.” Since Pelican Wire already produces these wire constructions, Watlow customers can expect a seamless transition and continued access to a talented and experienced team of Design and Production Engineers on every project. Current Pelican Wire customers may benefit from the additional capacity, both at our Naples, Florida location and with our sister company, Rubadue Wire, in Loveland, Colorado.
