Keeping US manufacturing alive, OCWD chose the local small business for the manufacturing of superior American Made product choosing Philatron Wire and Cable for hard to find submersible pump cable.

"Keeping local California employees working gives back to our economy and produces the positive affect the state of California so desperately needs!" Phil Ramos, Jr.

Orange County Water District (OCWD) has chosen Philatron in a competitive selection process to replace submersible pump cables for two dewatering pumps in Anaheim Lake. Orange County Water District needed 2,200 feet of cable and it was Philatron Wire and Cable who had the most competitive price and quality product.

OCWD employees provided Philatron engineers with specifications as well as a piece of cable from a previous installation. Philatron engineers replicated and offered improved cable construction in every aspect of the previous damaged cable including jacket material, outside diameter, copper stranding, internal fill, etc.

OCWD District staff felt it would not be cost-effective to continue with an offshore supplier. Philatron Wire and Cable not only offers cost effectiveness, but with the advantage of being a local business, lead times were cut more than 75% as Philatron offers a 4 week lead time and free delivery.

Previously, OCWD went overseas for their cable, paying a higher price and had the above mentioned risk of having their order delayed. With current economic trouble and unemployment at an all time high in the state of California, by choosing Philatron Wire and Cable, OCWD made the smart decision, not only for themselves but for California as a whole. Philatron Wire and Cable is a true blue American Manufacturer. Not many left these days, Phil Ramos, Jr. owner and CEO states, "Keeping local employees working gives back to our economy and produces the positive affect our state so desperately needs!"
