About Galaxy Wire & Cable
Galaxy Wire & Cable, Inc. is a leading cable and wire manufacturer and supplier, and a certified woman-owned business/women’s business enterprise (WBENC). Started in 1995 by industry expert Kathy Stussy, Galaxy has built a strong reputation as a customer service-oriented leader in cable and wire manufacturing and a reliable supplier to a variety of industries.
History of Galaxy Wire & Cable
Galaxy Wire & Cable is a woman-owned company that began in 1995 as a result of Kathy Stussy’s already successful career in the wire and cable industry. In her career working at various cable houses, Kathy realized very early on that there was a need in the industry for a supplier that could provide custom wire and cable products and hard to find items with quick deliveries and low minimum quantities. With this idea in mind, Kathy started Galaxy Wire & Cable, Inc.
In 2003 Galaxy began its Assembly Division. It started by manufacturing assemblies for only one of its customers. After one year of manufacturing, Galaxy had not only exceeded its customer’s expectations, it exceeded its goals. After that first year Galaxy began to market their wire harness and cable manufacturing abilities. Galaxy’s wire and cable manufacturing capabilities have grown ever since.
Galaxy is an invaluable partner to its customers, exceeding their expectations by providing vast product knowledge and outstanding service to produce superior wire, cable, and assembly products with honesty and integrity.
Galaxy Wire & Cable, Inc. is a dynamic organization of wire and cable engineering experts with over 50 years of experience in solving technical problems and improving product function. Galaxy is unique because its customers can “one stop shop” for not only wire and cable, but cable assemblies as well. Galaxy’s goal is to exceed customer expectations through attention to detail and rapid production capabilities.
ISO Quality Certification
The culture of continual improvement at Galaxy led the organization to pursue ISO certification. In 2014 that goal was realized when it achieved ISO 9001 certification. The implementation of ISO standards has allowed Galaxy to improve in numerous areas as an organization and better serve its customers.
As of May 1, 2019, Galaxy is certified as a qualified HUBZone small business.

DBE / UCP Certifications
The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program was developed by the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) in 1983. The goal of the program was to ensure that at least 10% of the funds authorized for DOT work be expended with companies that are DBE certified. US Congress added women-owned companies to the program in 1987, which allows Galaxy to qualify as a DBE.
Galaxy is now DBE-certified in 4 states.
