RSCC Cables RSCC Wire & Cable continues to deliver customer value by -

  • Meeting New Market requirements (Specs, Environment, Service)
  • Staying Current with New Processing Technology
  • Developing or Incorporating New Materials


RSCC was established in June, 1996 when The Rockbestos Company and Surprenant Cable Corporation were combined as one entity as a member company of The Marmon Group.  Already a Marmon Group member for twenty years, Rockbestos was founded in 1918 in New Haven, Connecticut.  Surprenant Cable Corporation was founded in 1938 in Clinton, Massachusetts. RSCC is now headquartered at the Connecticut facility, which encompasses the sales and marketing, design, manufacture, and distribution center.

True innovators examine what presently exists, and ask: “How can this be improved?” In the world of specialty engineered CT wire and cable manufacturing, the answer to this question helped form RSCC. The unique operational strengths of two recognized industry leaders combine to provide strategic advantages for our customers in worldwide industrial and electrical industries as well as those in the specialty markets of transportation and petrochemicals.

Now, as part of Marmon Engineered Wire & Cable, a member of The Marmon Group/A Berkshire Hathaway Co., RSCC Wire & Cable has the management and financial strength needed to sustain its leadership position and tradition of excellence. RSCC Wire & Cable offers its own unique product line and also can work in close conjunction with its sister companies also part of Marmon Engineered Wire & Cable including RSCC Aerospace & Defense, Aetna Insulated Wire, Hendrix Wire & Cable, The Kerite Company, Owl Manufacturing, Cable USA, Comtran, Harbour Industries, Dekoron Unitherm, Dekoron Wire & Cable, Cable USA, and TE Wire & Cable.
