Each year, the Philadelphia Business Journal names the top 50 largest family-owned businesses in the Philadelphia region, and this year, Allied Wire & Cable ranked higher than last year. Allied moved up from 15th place in 2015 to 11th place in 2016. This award takes into account family ownership criteria and company employment statistics.
Allied Wire & Cable is honored to be named one of the top 50 largest family-owned businesses in the Philadelphia region again in 2016. Based on the criteria, Allied easily earns the right to be on this list. To be eligible, the company must be at least 51 percent family-owned by two or more kin-related family members. The wire and cable manufacturer and distributor is owned and operated by three Flynn brothers: Tim, Dan, and Mike, and a close family friend, Chris Burke.
In 2015, the company was ranked number fifteen on the list, but this year Allied is ranked number 11. With conscious efforts to expand the company, this is not a surprise. Each year, the wire and cable company works hard to ensure its employees are happy, and that the community it serves feels appreciated.
Allied is a rapidly growing company that strives to give back to its employees and its community—all while maintaining that family-owned feel. The company is able to achieve the goals it sets in place because of the values behind it. Since the company started in the Flynn family basement in 1988, the company has outgrown many facilities and still continues to expand its branches nationwide. Allied hopes to be considered a top family-owned business for many years to come.
