CHICAGO, May 25, 2016 — Lexco Cable, a family-owned and ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturing business in Chicago, launched it’s new website today in an effort to better serve both new and returning customers.
“We wanted to update our online catalog, but we also wanted to make our website more user friendly and modern,” said Lexco Cable Product Manager, David Karbin. “We aim to create a user experience that makes buying wire rope assemblies approachable to novice while informative and helpful to engineers and procurement departments.”
With the new website, visitors have the opportunity to easily look through products offered by Lexco Cable, view assembly examples in a gallery, engage with resource guides and other educational material, and connect with experts if they have questions or would like to request a consultation.
There are also two unique tools, the “Build a Custom Wire Rope Assembly” and “Fabricate a Cablecraft Push-Pull Control”. These functions allow a user to input all of the desired variables of their assembly or push-pull control, allowing for easy quoting and production start-up. The process is streamlined and straightforward, which Karbin hopes will resonate with current and potential customers, and provide meaningful results.
Over the past 50 years, Lexco Cable has grown from a small shop on Chicago’s West Side to the current facility with more than 48,000 square feet of production space serving customers from across the nation and across the globe.
A respected wire rope assembly manufacturer, Lexco Cable’s production capabilities extend across the wire rope and cable spectrums. Lexco serves its loyal customers in a wide range of industries, including but not limited to manufacturing, farming, transportation, railroad, lumber, aerospace, fishing, and security.
The company is proud to share its expertise through its new online platform. Visit Lexco Cable’s new and improved website,, today.
A 3rd generation family-owned and operated business, Lexco Cable was founded as a hardware store and Schwinn bicycle franchise by Harold Karbin in 1952, after his return home from the Korean War. Lexco Cable has experienced strong and steady growth since then, expanding into cable and wire rope assembly manufacturing after Harold Karbin invented a bike lock using aircraft cable. Today, Lexco Cable supplies a huge variety of custom cable and wire rope assemblies, bungee assemblies, push-pull controls, and more, to clients across the globe.
