Olguin’s 30+ years in the wire and cable industry positions the company’s tray cable division for expansive growth over the next few years.

Rome, NY, April 20, 2023 – Kris-Tech Wire, a leading manufacturer of U.S.-made industrial wire and cable, has named industry veteran John Olguin its Tray Cable Product Line Manager. The promotion allows Olguin to oversee the company’s growing tray cable division and coincides with its plan to expand into the tray cable market with new product offerings and additional custom options. 

Tray cable is a multi-purpose product used across many commercial and industrial applications, including controls, power, lighting, and instrumentation or signal devices. It can be ordered with or without shielding and offers several insulation and jacketing options. 

All Kris-Tech’s wire and cable products are custom-made at the company’s Rome, NY, facility, and customers have the option of ordering unique prints, lengths, stranding types, twists, and packaging, including coils and reels.  

John O., as he’s known to most people, has a long history in the electrical industry, starting with Gaines Electric in Long Beach, CA. He later worked for Houston Wire & Cable, serving as an inside sales, outside sales, and branch manager, and Futronix as a district sales manager. He later was a founding member of Distributor Wire and Fittings (DWF), which sold to Omni Cable. 

Olguin has been with Kris-Tech for nearly seven years, working in inside sales, outside sales, and now product line manager for the tray cable division. 

“John Olguin is the perfect fit to lead the tray cable division,” Jeff Manzo, Vice President of Business Development for Kris-Tech, said. “His dedication to the company and immense knowledge base gives him perspective and insight into the overall industry and our customers that few people have. We’re excited to have John lead this product line into the future.” 

The move is only one of several the company says are in the works for 2023, including the expansion of several key product lines across its portfolio. 

“I’m honored to be one of the many team members who helped bring the tray cable product from conception to eventual UL approval,” Olguin said. “More importantly, we get to work closely with our internal and external electrical partners to continue growing this product offering in the coming years.”
