The wire and cable industry can potentially present various hazards if safety precautions and measures are not met. Some include, but are not limited to, electrical shock, fire, faulty wires, blown circuits, system failures, and more. End users, people like you and me, should never have to deal with these risks. That’s why here at Performance Wire and Cable we take every step necessary to ensure our loyal customers are safe with our products. This mentality gives us the ability to work on small and large projects alike, earning trust from national companies and the local electrician down the street.


  • BBB: The Better Business Bureau (BBB) was founded in 1912 as a way to ensure customers were dealing with legitimate businesses. The BBB ranks eligible companies based on consumer complaints, reviews and more. Performance Wire and Cable is proud of our A+ rating from the BBB, and we plan on keeping that rating.

  • NACE: We are proud to be a part of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, an organization dedicated toward furthering education and training on corrosion. Annual conferences and meetings are held for wire and cable industry professionals to share new findings and more. Due to many of our products being submerged underground, in water and other environments where corrosion is prevalent, it is important we focus on this topic! Learn more about corrosion here.
  • Intertek: Intertek has been giving companies a competitive edge for more than 130 years by branding them as Trusted Companies. While the company tests, inspects and certifies products across a bevy of industries, they also provide Quality Assurance labeling.

  • Made in the USA: We are very proud to gain the Made in the USA official stamp and certification. We employ dozens of local employees here in Central New York, and our organization and products meet all necessary standards and requirements. As competitors outsource more and more, we plan on sticking to our roots and continuing to provide jobs here in the states.
