About Us

AZ Wire & Cable is a leading master distributor for industrial, commercial & specialty wire & cable.

AZ supplies the electrical distribution channel & associated markets. Our vendors are industry leaders in the creation of wire & cable products of all types. We stock a full array of wire & cable in standard & special constructions. We sell our stock in bulk reels & cut to length.

Jim Anixter & Bob Zywicki (both Anixter International veterans) launched AZ Wire & Cable in 1988. The partners identified an opportunity to provide hard-to-find items, generally associated with high manufacturer minimums & limited inventory turns, to electrical wire & cable distributors of all sizes. The partners started AZ as buyers of special constructions, overstocks & discontinued commodities by leveraging their strong relationships with wire & cable manufacturers. Jim Anixter believes that the best businesses are simple with a focus on inventory, service & client value.

With a vast & diverse inventory, across 8 regional distribution centers nationwide, AZ Wire & Cable is your one-source distributor that can meet all your wire & cable needs. Our quality products, top of the line service & industry experts show why we are a “cut above the rest.”
