This is a new thread with the entry moved from another thread as it was quite off-subject.
Here is the way I understand it (E&OE);
Mills & Partners, Inc., (St. Louis, MO) specializes in the acquisition and operation of commercial and industrial manufacturing companies. It has many companies in its portfolio. ( www.mills-partners.com )
The International Wire Group, Inc. ( www.mills-partners.com/operating/wire.htm ) is one of three holding/ management companies owned by Mills & Partners, Inc. IWG, Inc. and manages one section of the Mills & Partners, Inc. companies. It is located in Camden, NY. The operating management team of IWG, Inc. is led by Joseph M. Fiamingo and Rod Kent.
There are many companies in the IWG, Inc. section but the appropriate wire manufacturers/ converters seem to be:
- The former Camden Wire Co. (Camden, NY) now Camden Wire
- Continental Cordage Corporation (Cazenovia, NY)
- Italtrecce S.r.l ( www.italtrecce.it/ )(Italy)
- IWG High Performance Conductors, Inc. formerly the Phelps Dodge High Performance Conductors plants in SC and GA
- The former Spargo Wire Co. (Rome, NY) now Spargo Wire
