Encore Wire Corporation, incorporated on April 5, 1989, is a manufacturer of electrical building wire and cable. The Company is a supplier of building wire for interior electrical wiring in commercial and industrial buildings, homes, apartments and manufactured housing. The Company manufactures electric building wire, principally NM-B cable, for use primarily as interior wiring in homes, apartments and manufactured housing, and THHN/THWN-2 cable and metal-clad and armored cable for use primarily as wiring in commercial and industrial buildings. The Company offers an electrical building wire product line that consists primarily of UF-B cable and other types of wire products. All of these products are manufactured with copper or aluminum as the conductor. The principal customers for the Company's wire are wholesale electrical distributors, who sell building wire and various other products to electrical contractors.

The Company's NM-B Cable is a non-metallic sheathed cable that is used primarily as interior wiring in homes, apartments and manufactured housing. NM-B cable consists of either two or three insulated copper wire conductors, with an uninsulated ground wire, all sheathed in a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jacket. Its UF-B Cable is an underground feeder cable that is used to conduct power underground to outside lighting and other applications remote from buildings or structures. UF-B cable is composed of two or three PVC insulated copper wire conductors, with an uninsulated ground wire, all jacketed in PVC. Its SE Style Cable (Style U) is a service Entrance cable, which is utilized as an aboveground external service entrance cable from the meter enclosure to the service distribution equipment. SE-U style cable consists of copper or aluminum multiple conductors, insulated with PVC or a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation, all jacketed in PVC.

The Company's SE Style Cable (Style R) is a service entrance cable that is utilized as an aboveground service entrance cable from the service disconnecting means to other remotely located electrical distribution equipment. SE-R style cable consists of copper or aluminum multiple conductors, insulated with PVC or a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation, all jacketed in PVC. Its THHN/THWN-2 Cable is used primarily as branch circuit, feeder and service entrance conductors within commercial and industrial buildings and structures. It consists of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and insulated with PVC, which is further coated with nylon. Users typically pull THHN/THWN-2 cable through cable tray or protective conduit pipe.

The Company's XHHW-2 cable is used as branch circuit, feeder and service entrance conductors within commercial and industrial buildings and structures. It is composed of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation. Its USE-2, RHH or RHW-2 cable is intended for general purpose applications in direct burial, underground applications as USE-2 or as RHH or RHW-2 for either aboveground or underground applications in listed raceways for branch circuit, feeder and service entrance conductors. It is composed of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation suitable for wet locations.

The Company's Tray Cable (Power and/or Control) is used as branch circuit or feeders for power, lighting, control and signal circuits for direct installations in raceways, outdoor locations where supported by a messenger wire, in cable trays and direct burial in underground installations where evaluated for the specific condition of use. It consists of copper or aluminum multiple conductors, insulated with PVC or cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) with either insulated or bare equipment grounding conductor, all jacketed in rugged PVC. Its Metal-clad cable is used as branch circuit, feeder, and service conductors, primarily in multi-family dwellings, commercial and industrial buildings. It consists of multiple conductors, either stranded or solid, and insulated with PVC, which are further coated with nylon or with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation and then fully encased in a flexible aluminum or steel armored protective sheathing.

The Company's Armored cable is used as branch circuit and feeders, primarily in commercial and industrial buildings. It consists of multiple conductors, either stranded or solid, and insulated with PVC, which are further coated with nylon and then fully encased in a flexible aluminum or steel armored protective sheathing. Its Photovoltaic Single-Conductor Cable is intended for use as photovoltaic (PV) direct-current output circuit and source circuits between the PV arrays and combiner boxes. It is composed of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation. Its Underground Residential Distribution Cable (URD) or Underground Distribution Cable (UDC) is for underground secondary distribution, as service entrance conductors underground, and as service laterals. It may be directly buried in earth or installed in an electrical duct system in both wet and dry locations. It consists of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation.

The Company's Mobile Home Feeder Cable is primarily for underground feeders to mobile homes. It may be directly buried in earth or in a listed raceway system in both wet and dry locations. It consists of a copper or aluminum single conductor, either stranded or solid, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation. Its Overhead Service Drop conductors are for overhead secondary distribution, as service entrance conductors overhead, and as service drop conductors from utility transformers to premise wiring systems. It consists of electrical grade 1350 series aluminum alloy conductors, typically stranded, and with a single layer of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation.

The Company competes with Southwire Company, Cerro Wire LLC, General Cable Corporation and AFC Cable Systems, Inc.
