The Okonite Company, insulators of electrical wire and cable
The Okonite Company was founded in 1878 making it one of the original insulators of electrical wire and cable in the United States. Earliest customers included Samuel F.B. Morse for his telegraph network and Thomas A. Edison for the Pearl Street Generating Station, the nation's first, built in New York City in 1882. Products manufactured in six plants range from insulated wire approximating a human hair in thickness to cable measuring six inches in diameter.Okonite is a premier manufacturer of high quality insulated electric wire and cable, specializing in high voltage cable (up to 345kV), medium voltage cables (from 5 to 35kV) and low voltage power, control and instrumentation cables.
The cables are manufactured with a variety of materials including laminated polypropylene paper, thermosetting and thermoplastic insulation and jacketing compounds. Many products feature Okonite’s Okoguard® all EPR insulation system. These constructions are further complemented by a wide selection of metallic and non-metallic coverings to provide added mechanical protection to the wire and cable for various environments.
Products are engineered and manufactured to meet the needs of many industries, including electric utilities, rapid transit systems, railroads, chemical producers, refineries and pulp & paper mills to name a few. Okonite's commitment to customer service is personal and substantial. Domestic sales and services are provided by a nationwide network of district sales offices staffed by experienced cable professionals. These offices, along with six (6) service center locations and six (6) manufacturing locations, are all managed from our corporate headquarters in Ramsey, New Jersey. The Orangeburg, South Carolina facilities(opened in 1993 and recently expanded to increase capacity 72%), are a new modern state-of-the-art rubber compounding and cable fabrication plants. The International Division operates directly from the Company's Ramsey, New Jersey Headquarters.
