Highland Heights, KY — General Cable has opted to:

  • Eliminate cardboard box packaging on all 250’ Carol® Brand Portable Cord products
  • Replace existing plastic spools that must be contained within a box with a new durable, recyclable high-density polyethylene reel that is made with heavily recycled material and may be stacked directly on a pallet
  • Standardize the arbor hole on all new reels for ease of handling and pulling by contractors while on the job

General Cable’s new sturdier reels include plastic wrap with labels applied directly to the wrap. A distributor can now see the product itself that was previously hidden in a box on their shelves. Additionally, these new reels ensure safer handling for all throughout the supply chain. The reels will be stacked and shipped on the pallets as before and there will be little change in quantities or weights on each pallet. General Cable is currently transitioning to the new reels and has cross-referenced part numbers for ease of ordering. For questions regarding the new reels program, please call us at +1.800.243.8020 today or contact your General Cable Sales Representative.
