Our Customer's Trust Us, Shouldn't You?

Custom Cable Assembly
Frequently companies will contact Cable Industries to design or make a custom assembly for a special application.  For this particular project, the customer provided us with all of the parts that were needed to put the assembly together.

The customer needed a custom cable assembly using 3/8” diameter wire rope, 22’ long, thimble eyes at each end and a threaded eyebolt inside of each thimble eye.

The cable assembly was put together and load tested, all within 24 hours for the customer to pick up.

If our customer’s trust us to make their cable assemblies, shouldn’t you?

Visit us at and view the many assemblies we design and sell.
