CHICAGO, IL – Leading value-added wire, cable and automation solutions provider GCG announced recently the acquisition of Allied Wire and Cable. Allied is a premier, value-added specialty distributor of wire and cable products across the U.S., and internationally.
Founded in 1987, Allied has grown to become a leading service-oriented, specialty distributor of wire and cable, tubing, connectors & termination products as well as cable assemblies serving numerous end markets including aerospace & defense, lighting, manufacturing, data centers, telecommunications and general industrial. Based in Collegeville, Pennsylvania Allied has additional locations in Wisconsin, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New Hampshire.
“From the start the Allied team has grown by recognizing and being responsive to customer needs,” said Steve Maucieri, CEO of GCG. “This focus on value-added services and the end-to-end customer experience has resulted in long-lasting relationships and is why we wanted Allied to be a part of GCG.”
The combination of GCG and Allied immediately creates a premier, national value-added wire, cable and connectivity solutions provider to better service our customers and manufacturing partners. Allied bolsters GCG’s existing strength in the broader Industrial OEM market and leverages the value-added service and customer-oriented approach that has made the organization so successful to date.

Those investments they have made reflect a customer-centric approach that makes them the perfect match for Allied.”
