FLEX-CABLE COMPANY HISTORY AND OVERVIEW
A Northern Cable and Automation Company, LLC.
FLEX-CABLE was founded in 1961 and constructed its first plant in Troy, Michigan near Detroit where we were quickly granted approval by the auto industry to provide various cable products for use in the manufacturing of automobiles. As we continued to grow, we moved to a larger manufacturing facility in Howard City, Michigan near Grand Rapids with our corporate offices in Birmingham, Michigan.
At FLEX-CABLE, we operate at the world class level of engineering and manufacturing capacity because of our ability to increase quality, flexibility, customer service and innovation while decreasing cost and lead time. To achieve these things, we maintain a continuous improvement culture working toward zero defects. Our products are designed to make the flow of electricity more efficient by the reduction of materials, space and time. We work to improve the connectivity industry with accurate, durable, flexible, safe, and reliable products.
Not only are we a local Michigan manufacture but we’re also HUBZone Certified which allows for reduced lead time and intimate customer service. Our local services also offer flexibility to meet customer needs with reliable experts.

Our corporate culture is all about pushing the boundaries. Research, Development and Continuous Improvement are the backbone of our innovations. Our products and technical solutions service many markets from automotive to automation, and healthcare to defense, and a wide variety of others.
FLEX-CABLE was the first within the industry to introduce our patented Pre-Formed Bus Bar Technology for the electric car industry providing low resistance connectivity in a compact space saving package.
FLEX-CABLE developed the Air-Purge Cable (Patent Pending) which introduces dry air or nitrogen under low pressure through the encoder connection and directly into the motor itself, thereby protecting motors from moisture and dirt infusion.
FLEX-CABLE developed bi-polar low impedance/high frequency braided induction cables for use in induction furnace and other induction heating applications.
And, FLEX-CABLE developed the technology to combine power, feedback and brake in a flat cable with a 2.5 inch bend radius for servo motor applications.
