CARROLLTON, Ga. - Jan. 4, 2007 - Southwire, North America's leading manufacturer of wire and cable, has expanded its line of cord products with the introduction of Viper(TM) rubber cord and QuantumTPE(TM) cord products. Southwire now provides one of the industry's most comprehensive offerings of rubber, TPE and PVC flexible cord solutions for industrial and commercial applications. Both new cord lines are manufactured in the U.S. to the highest industry standards.

The Southwire flexible cord family is available with 300V and 600V ratings. All have sunlight resistant jackets rated for outdoor use and conductors rated for wet locations. Conductor insulations and outer jackets are oil resistant. Available configurations include up to five conductors. Conductor sizes range from 2 AWG to 18 AWG in most constructions. Viper rubber cord and QuantumTPE cord, along with specialty cord products, are stocked by Southwire's nine Master Service Centers and are available for immediate shipment.

"The addition to the Southwire family of the Viper line of rubber cord products and the QuantumTPE product line are examples of how we respond to customer needs," said David Cooper, Southwire cord products manager.
