History of Shattuc and The Runzel Corporation

Runzel Cord and Wire Company History

Emanating from the Runzel Cord & Wire Company, whose business philosophy was “making a good product and giving good service”, Shattuc Cord Specialties continues that same business philosophy today. In the 1930’s, the Runzel Cord & Wire Company was known for manufacturing the robust Western Electric cords that were known throughout the world for their use in the Telecommunications Industry. Today, those cords are highly sought after by vintage collectors of that technology to restore the vast array of telecommunications equipment of that era. In the modern day, Shattuc Cord Specialties has expanded our capabilities to new customers and providing new products, while still maintaining the highly-valued business that has contributed to its success.

Since 1991, Shattuc Cord Specialties Inc. has met customer’s needs by manufacturing an immense array of custom braided products, and cable assemblies. Many of these products are proprietary, and are sold to both Value-Added and Original Equipment Manufacturers.

In 2011, to expand our customer base, we decided to venture in Pro Audio/Video and Broadcast markets. The addition of Pro A/V and Broadcast products has been a tremendous success. Shattuc also distributes bulk cable, will cut to customer specified lengths, and offers connectors, tools, and other synergistic items that complement the Pro A/V and Broadcast markets.
