Republic Wire, a family-owned and operated leader in the copper wire manufacturing industry announced its fifth expansion in 26 years.


Republic Wire originally manufactured top quality bare copper wire and became known as “bare copper specialists.”  Republic Wire now offers aluminum and copper wire for electrical wholesale distributors, utility distributors, utilities and municipalities with notable customers including the Kennedy Space Center and Disney World. 


In 1994, Republic Wire relocated its corporate headquarters to a 44,384 square-foot facility at 5525 Union Centre Drive, moving before the Union Centre Interchange was even completed.  After four expansions, Republic Wire now has more than 350,000 square-feet of manufacturing space in West Chester at that same location, but they are not going to stop there.   


Republic Wire has announced a fifth expansion—a new 400,000 square-foot building on a 15-acre site at 8341 Princeton Glendale Road/SR747 just north of the West Chester Trade Center development.  Upon completion, Republic Wire will have a total of 750,000 square-feet of space in West Chester and become one of the Township’s largest manufacturers.    


“In 1994, West Chester was still as much a dream as a built-out reality.  Because of companies like Republic Wire who dared to dream with us, West Chester has grown into what we know today,” said Township Administrator, Larry D. Burks.


Schumacher Dugan Construction is the developer for this project.
