Back in 1899, several companies involved in wire manufacturing merged with Washburn and Moen Manufacturing Company from Massachusetts giving birth to the American Steel &Wire Company. After the failure of their initial intention of taking captive the barbed wire market, the company turned its attention to the surging demand for power cables after the discovery of electricity.
The American steel and Wire Company dominated the production of industrial wire and insulation cable. When the United States Steel Corporation adopted electricity I its coal mines, the American Steel and Wire Company developed the needed cables. Doing business under the name Tiger Brand, the company specialized in developing mining cables. After several name changes and the relocation of the cable manufacturing section USS, the company finally adopted the name Amercable Incorporated.
