Our People

Since Southwestern Wire began in 1992, the company has grown to over 200 employees, making it one of the largest private employers in the city. Our employees are continually rewarded and participate in a generous profit-sharing program. This truly gives each employee a sense of ownership in the company, and rewards them for their hard work.

Our people are the main reason for our success, and Southwestern Wire provides a safe, diverse and rewarding environment where our employees have opportunities to succeed. Comprehensive safe-workplace education is an integral part of our training program that, in many cases, exceed OSHA and other regulatory requirements. Additionally, employees are rewarded directly for helping create and maintain a safe working environment.

In addition to profit sharing, we offer a wide range of benefits to our employees, including: Health Insurance, 401k, AFLAC and a prescription drug program. If you’re interested in becoming part of diverse and successful team, please contact our HR department at 405.809.2800.
