Attleboro, MA – Comtran, a leading provider of specialty cable and system solutions, is celebrating its 35th anniversary on April 1, 2020. Founded in 1985, Comtran has quickly grown to be an innovator in the wire and cable industry, paving the way for unique solutions in structured cabling, fire safety, circuit integrity, and transit communications.
Established in Whitinsville, MA, Comtran began as a manufacturer of low voltage telecommunications and electronics cable. In 2010, the company moved to its current location in Attleboro, MA. The 185,000 square foot facility serves as the headquarters for production, sales, finance, engineering, and marketing. In 2001, Comtran became a member of the Marmon Group, which has helped provide the strategic and financial strength needed to sustain its growth and leadership position in the market.
While a lot has changed for Comtran over the years, one aspect remains the same – dedication to customers is a top priority. Comtran has earned a solid reputation for being a customer-oriented and reliable business partner. The highly regarded sales team is considered to be one of the most responsive, knowledgeable, and trustworthy in the industry, while the engineers are recognized for their technical expertise and innovative product development.
Joe Barry, President, is excited about how far Comtran has come and is looking forward to the future direction of the company. “Since joining Comtran in 2010, I’ve witnessed the company achieve tremendous growth and success by expanding manufacturing capabilities, developing new products, and identifying new market opportunities. Now, as we align more closely with our sister Marmon companies, there is the potential for new product creation and market expansion like never before.” He continues to credit the team at Comtran for its success, especially the machine operators, many of whom have been with Comtran for 30-35 years. “We have a loyal team here at Comtran. Without their consistent commitment – from product quality to safety standards to sales accomplishments – Comtran would not be in the position it is today. The employees work hard to achieve daily success, which has led to long-term prosperity.”
