Experience Allied History with Facebook Timeline

Allied Wire & Cable's Facebook Timeline

Allied’s Facebook profile has seen a lot of changes recently with the switch to the new Timeline format. We are excited about our new look, but we are even more thrilled to be able to share our company’s history with you in a more interesting and interactive way!

If you aren’t familiar with the new setup, Timeline lets you follow businesses through the years, from the time they were founded to the present – not just from the time they started using Facebook. The new format has given us a great excuse to go through our archives and dig out some treasures from our past. We hope you’ll take a few moments to check out Allied’s story, from our start in a Pennsylvania family basement to now.

Here are some of our timeline highlights:

  • 1988 – Allied is founded in the Flynn family basement in Wayne, PA. The owners do it all – sales, administration, and even hand-spooling the wire.
  • 1993 – We move to Bridgeport, PA. It’s our first real warehouse!
  • 2005 – New Hampshire branch opens.
  • 2007 – We expand west to Wisconsin with our Elkhorn facility.
  • 2008 – AWC makes its debut on YouTube with the first of many how-to videos!
  • 2009 – We’re listed in the Philadelphia 100 as one of the fastest-growing privately-owned companies in the area.
  • 2010 – Viva las Vegas! We hit the West Coast with our newest facility, in Nevada.
  • 2012 – Our Collegeville location expands, bringing our headquarters to over 100,000 square feet – tons of room to stock the wire and cable our customers need on-site.
