Ancor was founded over twenty years ago to solve electrical problems experienced by mariners as they ventured
offshore in large numbers. General purpose wire and components designed for on shore applications caused
significant problems as electrical systems became more sophisticated and demanding.
Ancor Marine Grade Products quickly became the system of choice as the first major supplier of UL listed
products designed for the harsh marine environment. Often imitated, never duplicated, Ancor continues to lead
the industry by providing the most water resistant, flame retardant wiring products available.
ANCOR MARINE is the oldest, largest and best known Marine Grade electrical wire company in North America. No
one produces a better Marine Grade wire at any price. Our wire is the finest Marine Grade wire available.
All our products meet national and international wire standards. ANCORs full line of UL approved Marine
Grade wire meets Coast Guard Subchapter T, Lloyds, and ABYC standards. Other wire companies supply tinned,
non-tinned and automotive grade wire to the marine industry, creating confusion in the minds of some customers
as to what they are buying. We sell only the best tinned wire.
ANCOR MARINE has always had the competitive edge for:
ANCOR MARINE offers a complete marine wiring system. This assures the most long-lived, water-proof, and
corrosion resistant marine electrical system possible. ANCOR is extremely "quality conscious." All of
our wire is mechanically inspected during the manufacturing process to insure that the jacket is uniform and
has been properly applied. After that, each piece of wire is inspected by two people to insure that the quality
and appearance of the wire meets our high standard.
We pride ourselves on service and have ten years of history to back up our claim that no one has better service
than ANCOR MARINE. We support our dealers and distributors with a toll free, national customer service number
for technical service and orders. Our technical service staff has the technical expertise to answer just about
any electrical question. We are a valuable resource for both "how to do it" questions as well as a
wide range of other non-wire related information and ancillary products. Our return policy has no equal. We are
so sure of our products that we offer a 100% satisfaction guaranteed policy.
One area of service not often considered is that we provide a complete system of Marine Grade electrical
products: Use our wire, our terminals and adhesive coated heat shrink tubing and you know that you are using
the best, longest-lived, most waterproof, and corrosion resistant system available. Each component was designed
to work with every other component in the best, most advantageous way. This synergistic approach saves money,
time and aggravation in the long run.
In a recent, national survey 91.8 % of the people polled thought that getting what they wanted, when they
wanted it was more important than the lowest price. Quality was also cited as being more important than the
lowest price. In other words, people buy based on perceived value of which price is only one factor. A
"cheaper" price is usually obtained by some reduction in quality or service.
