WireMasters LogoWireMasters, Inc., a distributor of high-performance military specification wire and cable, has announced the acquisition of Wyre Tek, LLC., a cable manufacturing company. The addition of the Rhode Island manufacturer to the WireMasters Family will form a strong team that will provide advanced products and value added services throughout the aerospace and defense industries.

WireMasters currently holds Qualified Producer List (QPL) status for unshielded and unjacketed (U00) cables within the military cable specification M27500. By acquiring Wyre Tek and their extensive QPL positions, WireMasters can now manufacture more cables within M27500. Via Wyre Tek, WireMasters can produce cables with tape wrapped jackets and braided shields, as well as non-QPL certified cables with similar jackets and shielding, such as the M55021 specification. In addition to these manufacturing capabilities, WireMasters will establish an inventory presence at the Wyre Tek facility to better serve our customers located in the North East region.

David C. Hill, WireMasters President and CEO, said: “We are excited about the acquisition of Wyre Tek and what these new manufacturing capabilities mean for the WireMasters brand. As a company, we are always looking for ways to diversify and expand our products and services and this transaction seemed like the perfect opportunity. Wyre Tek will strengthen and broaden our offerings and enhance our ability to deliver the finest products and extensive services throughout our industry. With our focus and dedication remaining on our customers, you can expect nothing but great things from the WireMasters family of companies.”
