Who are we?
Blue Ridge Wire & Cable was founded in 2014 by Gary White. Gary’s career in the wire and cable business started in 1966 when he worked for Canada Wire and Cable Montreal on the Order Desk. Spent a year working for Union Electric Supply as a wire and cable Buyer then two years in Inside Sales at Turmac Industries (now Anixter Canada). From 1972 through 2011 Gary worked for three privately owned Canadian wire and cable distributors. Retired at the beginning of 2012 and volunteered singing and playing Guitar for the Geriatric patients at a local Hospital in Ottawa. Decided to get back in the wire business and founded Blue Ridge Wire & Cable as an Agent for several wire and cable manufacturers. We are an Agent for American Wire and Cable, Condumex Inc., Elettrotek Kabel and Thermal Wire and Cable. The companies we represent sell exclusively through Electrical Distributor.
For over 60 years Condumex has built a history of technological
competence and has established itself as a leader in the development of electrical wire & cable solutions for low, medium, high and extra high voltage systems. For the Mining industry, Condumex has applied its expertise in the development of their Securityflex brand of SHD-GC Mining Cables. In 2015 Condumex engaged CIDEC, the research and development centre of Grupo Carso (Condumex’s parent company) to conduct a third party lab
evaluation of the mechanical properties and performance of Condumex’s SHD-GC and those of two leading competitors. Condumex’s jackets are Molten Eutectic Salt cured (Pressurized Liquid Salt Continuous Vulcanization) and the competitor’s jackets were Lead Mold cured and CV (Continuously Vulcanized steam cured). The purpose of this paper is to describe the physical and mechanical tests that were performed and show the results of the evaluation program and the superior position of Condumex Securityflex SHD-GC Cable. Please let us know if you would like to receive a copy of Condumex’s White paper dated December 2015 and a copy of their catalogue sheet on SHD-GC.
