Omni Cable Corp., a master distributor of specialty wire and cable based in West Chester, Pa., opened a 20,000-square-foot facility in Tampa, Fla., its ninth location in the United States. The new facility stocks more than $1 million in specialty wire and cable inventory and will offer same-day shipping, cut-to-specified length orders, striping and 24-hour/7 days-a-week emergency service.

“Same-day-shipments will allow our Tampa location to service electrical distributors in the entire state of Florida within 24 hours, says Peter Comber, Omni's director of sales and marketing. Steve Sweat, Omni Cable's general manager and vice president of the company's Atlanta branch, will expand his role to include Omni Cable Tampa.

Omni Cable is ranked as the 68th largest distributor of electrical supplies in Electrical Wholesaling's 2005 Top 200 ranking.
