Calmont Wire & Cable
Calmont Wire & Cable has provided innovative solutions for exciting projects like the Apollo and Space Shuttle Programs, and the Hubble Telescope. Our designs and manufacturing processes solve complicated problems in solar expedition and research, cryogenics, and surgical devices. In our southern California facilities Calmont designs, manufactures, tests, and provides on-demand inventory.
In 1958, Calmont’s founder said of his infant company "We are problem solvers…and we also sell wire and cable." The Calmont culture of Growing People and Making a Difference has helped mankind explore the universe, battle sickness and disease, and improve productivity and safety by designing custom wire and cable for extreme environments and delicate conditions.
Calmont Wire & Cable has been a privately held company since 1958.
It is Calmont Wire & Cable’s mission to develop people and make a difference in the world by designing and delivering custom wire and cable solutions that make amazing products come to life.
We are a U.S. manufacturer, and we are leading the charge to bring manufacturing back to the United States by offering guaranteed satisfaction that isn’t available anywhere else in the world. At Calmont, our culture and our vision enable us to do more for our customers. Our team of innovative problem solvers, and our organizational dedication to continuous improvement, have led to a 99.4% customer acceptance rate.
In 1958, Bill Chilcote seized an opportunity and assembled an extruder to produce tubing for a hot selling new product – the Hula Hoop. Within three months, the Wham-O Company sold over 25 million Hula Hoops and Calmont was born. After the Hula Hoop craze ended, Bill quickly realized the potential of the rapidly growing aerospace and military markets. New technologies being developed required wires and cables with characteristics that were unavailable from existing manufacturers. Calmont Wire & Cable emerged from Bill’s willingness to solve unusual problems and his love of innovation.
Calmont is about making a difference in the world. We thrive on challenging projects and we believe that anything is possible. Calmont specializes in designing wire and cable that can withstand the challenges of exploring and researching the deepest depths of the sea, the highest peaks on earth, the moon, our galaxy, and now, beyond our galaxy. We make and design products for electric cars, heart pumps, micro-surgery devices, alternative power, and military applications.
Bill’s spirit of innovation and discovery lives on at Calmont
Bill passed away in 1998, but his imprint at Calmont remains deep. More than 50 years after its inception, Calmont still uses some of the equipment Bill designed and continues to tackle and master challenges that would delight and inspire him.
