BALTIMORE, Md., Feb. 2, 2022 — Marlin Steel Wire Products LLC (MarlinWire.com) acquired the intellectual property and patent of Cable Corral from TechDek Products (techdekproducts.com) on December 6, 2021. The Cable Corral under-desk system product line allows a user to effectively arrange cables, cords, power strips, and more to declutter a workspace. With this acquisition, Marlin Steel looks forward to meeting clients' cable-organizing requirements for another 50 years.
Cable Corral president Eric Gallup will remain on with Marlin Steel, as will Gallup's dedicated staff. "Their creativity is inspiring and their institutional knowledge will be retained so we have a smooth transition for the Cable Corral Clients," says Drew Greenblatt, president of Marlin Steel. "Eric’s leadership over the decades and his dedication to quality and on-time delivery is legendary." Marlin Steel will also retain Cable Corrals’ equipment and tooling, to provide a smooth transition.
"We are making offices look professional and pleasant to work in and not jumbles of wires with their unsightly vibe. Dedicated workers like a clean look and that is what Cable Corral provides," Gallup explains. As for the acquisition, "Marlin has always been focused on safety – they have gone 1,475+ days with no safety incident, and by adding the Cable Corral line, they will be stopping trip hazards in offices and factories."
Like Cable Corral, Marlin Steel is a family-owned business. The company is process-driven, with an ISO 9001:2015 platform and attention to quality that has helped it grow its exports to over 40 countries, with shipments to Mexico weekly and, as of December, to Switzerland. The company wants to create long-term blanket orders for its USA-made products so it can ship same-day on a client's behalf, as it does for current clients like Baxter, Thermo Fisher, Grainger, and Boeing.
Marlin Steel has invested over $7 million in the latest automation and technology for custom wire forms (marlinwire.com/custom_wire_forms.htm). In 2021, the company expanded its factory floor space by 56% in February, and an additional 6,000 square feet in December. With 20% of its team of mechanical and chemical engineers holding degrees, Marlin Steel is here to help with reorders of existing products or new custom engineering products.
The company thanks its clients for their continued support and looks forward to continuing the Cable Corral legacy of quality for decades to come. For a quote or to place an order, please reach out to Gabrielle Silgalis at (443) 955-5214 or contact us on our website.
