How important are the electrical wire and cable companies to the World? Well, despite the fact that all communication on the planet goes through wire at some point on its journey, all electrical power and communication goes through wire and cable and all petroleum products are refined with electricity. We talk about the World as having a petroleum economy but without electricity, we would be back in a fully agrarian economy like the early 1800s with a much smaller World population. Something to think about once in a while! We thought you might like to see this NASA compilation of the lights of Earth, keeping in mind that every one of these lights is connected by wire and cable.
This photograph is very accurate so you may be able to see where you live. Please note however that the apparent island just north of the south end of Japan is in reality South Korea. We imagine the lighting in North Korea must be pretty sparse to make South Korea appear as an island. To find a company web site, just click on the the first letter of the company name below. If the first name of the company starts with a simple word such as "The" or "A", that word is not included in the alphabetical matrix. Likewise companies that start with a numeral such as "3M" are found in order at the beginning of page"A". Generally speaking, go for the name of the wire and cable company rather than the name of the holding company. As a rule however, we try to include all the holding companies in the database. There is one very important point with 64 bit computers and Internet Explorer. Both the 32 bit and the 64 bit versions of Internet Explorer (latest issue) are generally included on your programs list but usually, the 32 bit version is the one on your Desktop and Quick Launch Bar. Make sure you replace the 32 bit version with the 64 bit version on your Desktop and Quick Launch Bar and use only that 64 bit version with your 64 bit computer. To do otherwise will leave you with confusing viewing issues dealing with the two different versions of Microsoft ActiveX. Thank you.

The alphabetical web pages for the various cable companies are in HTML 4.01 so there is no page menu bar as found on all of the XHTML 1.0 web pages such as this one. Instead just use your “Back To The Cables Manufacturers Index”  button on any Stewart-Hay Associates HTML 4.01 page you have selected.  Any cable company you are interested in will automatically open as a separate page so it can be deleted easily from your web browser by just deleting the appropriate “Tab” at the top of the page.
