About PGC Wire & Cable

Company History

PGC Wire and Cable, LLC (formerly known as RAPID Wire and Cable) has been assembling wire harness, cable and electro-mechanical assemblies since 2012.

Our core strength is our experience in building so many different types of assemblies and harnesses. In 2018 alone, we built over 100,000 units, representing thousands of different assemblies/wire harnesses part numbers for hundreds of customers across North America. It is this experience that has enabled us to achieve a 98.6% quality satisfaction rating and a strong, reliable track record of on-time (or early) deliveries to our valued customers.

In May, 2018, a group of employees purchased the business from RAPID Manufacturing, a Protolabs Company and in August 2018, we moved to our current Hudson, NH location, with 3x more manufacturing space to allow the company to continue its rapid growth.
