Allied Wire & Cable, Philadelphia, is having a year-long anniversary celebration to mark its first 25 years in business. The company began in the Flynn family basement in 1988 and has become one of the fastest-growing wire and cable companies in the United States. Still family owned and operated, Allied Wire & Cable attributes its success to its emphasis on “common sense” over “dollars and cents.”

The year is filled with interactive activities and promotions to thank customers and honor company milestones at its network of locations across the country and sales and stocking locations in Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Florida, Wisconsin and Nevada. The celebration will feature a different theme each month, highlighting a specific company achievement and incorporating a related customer giveaway, with prizes such as a Kindle Fire, themed gift baskets, and a grand prize trip.

“We started this company in our parents' basement with no money, but a lot of optimism. Now we are well over a $100 million dollar company with multiple locations and close to 200 people working with us,” said Tim Flynn, co-owner and president of Allied Wire & Cable, “It has been an exciting ride and it isn't over yet. Can't wait to see what the next 25 years brings us.”
