About Our Firm
The Davis-Orion Wire group began in 1980 with Davis Associates LLC, a Massachusetts supplier of standard wires and cables. Several years later the Davis RF Co. was created and began supplying components to the commercial and amateur radio markets. Davis RF Co. sourced a specialized rope-lay cable and trademarked it FLEX-WEAVE , a hybrid innovation for the aerial wire market. As the company expanded its services throughout government and commercial markets another product innovation, BURY-FLEX , a low loss direct burial coax, was designed and trademarked by Davis RF.
In 1992 Davis Associates / Davis RF began working closely with Orion Wire CompanyInc., a New Hampshire designer of custom electronic cables. This relationship led to an expansion of commercial business and significant experience with unique wire and cable items.
A new subsidiary, Davis/Orion Marine, was formed in 1994 to supply the boat building and servicing industry with USCG, UL and ABYC accepted products. This division has successfully fulfilled the needs of major boat yards, boat builders and marine electronics installers. The level of attention to detail and excellence has enabled this product group to expand beyond its New England base to become a distributor to other marine cable resellers nationwide.
A new distribution center in North Haverhill, NH was opened in 1995 to serve the various companies/divisions of the Davis-Orion Wire group and provide customer service support for the Massachusetts and New Hampshire sales offices. Prompt shipping and upgraded accounting and order-tracking controls further facilitated the group’s priorities of quality products and outstanding customer service.
In 2005 Orion Wire Company, Inc. purchased Davis Associates LLC along with its Davis RF and Davis/Orion Marine divisions. Since that time the company has strengthened its ability to apply state-of-the-art computer and engineering prowess to recognize and solve the everyday problems of its clients. We typically will fully review a customer’s cable design by analysis of the application and the suitability of the wire and cable specifications to the specific task. The value-added expertise and engineering support is made possible by our staff’s knowledge of chemistry, electronics and cable design and production techniques.
The Davis-Orion Wire group is affiliated with a many cable factories and periodically reviews each vendor to best match cable requirements to a specific vendor. These relationships greatly facilitate our product pricing, quality and availability. Further, our in-depth product familiarity and extensive client satisfaction emphasis allows us to compete world wide in the markets we serve.
