Most all general-purpose cable not produced in the USA or Europe, is produced in China and Asia. There are many factories producing galvanized cable products and as a company, we have traveled to visit many of them over the years. We know which ones good and which ones are not. To distinguish the good from the bad, you must know manufacturing processes and you must personally visit the plant producing the cable. The PRO Strand brand was created by Sea-Land to establish trust in a group of products. PRO Strand branded products have been qualified and vetted and are produced in Thailand. There is so much product brought into the U.S. with no brand and no way of knowing its origin compared to PRO Strand branded products that offer a high degree of trust and reduction of risk.
