Cerrowire Expands Hartselle, Alabama, Operations

Cerrowire, a major U.S. manufacturer of copper building wire, will build a 270,000-square-foot facility to produce metal clad cable in Morgan County, Alabama. The $100 million project is expected to create 130 jobs.

The new facility, located at the Morgan Center Business Park in Hartselle, will allow the company to extend its product offerings for its retail and electrical distribution partners. The site will incorporate advanced systems and equipment, allowing the company to further its commitment to high quality and cost control, according to company officials.

“We are looking forward to Hartselle being the strategic location that is a perfect fit for our major new venture and to the creation of over 130 jobs to support this growing community,” Cerrowire President Stewart Smallwood said.

Cerrowire manufactures and distributes quality copper and aluminum wire and cable products, including building wire, portable cord, and specialty wires.

“Cerrowire’s significant investment in this new Alabama facility will position the company for future growth while also providing a meaningful financial boost to the Hartselle area through the creation of new jobs and opportunities,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
