  • Cable Assemblies

    Single source for high-quality connectorized assemblies

    Get rid of your cable complexity today. C&M supplies complete cable assemblies that will turn a jumble of cables, connectors and strain relief components into a single bill-of-materials item. And not only will cable assemblies simplify your shop floor logistics, but they will also improve performance and extend lifecycle in military, medical and industrial applications with demanding operating conditions.

    Excellence from design to delivery

    With extensive in-house design and production capabilities, C&M serves as a single-source supplier for your finished cable assemblies. We specialize in:

  • Innovative designs, including the ability to integrate functional components and features that go well beyond connectors and strain reliefs.
  • Quick turn production, of both custom and off-the-shelf mechanical and overmolded cable assemblies.
  • Diverse product mixes at high production volumes, with many of our orders consisting of dozens or even hundreds of distinct SKUs.

    Rapid Overmolded Cable Assemblies

    C&M operates the industry’s most extensive cable overmolding facility. Thanks to a collection of pre-existing tooling, we’re able to offer off-the-shelf (COTS) overmolded cable assemblies for a huge range of round military connectors. Our captive tooling making operation also allows us to turn around custom overmolded cable and coil cord assemblies in record time.

  • Coil Cords

    Retractile cords that go the distance

    C&M designs and manufactures coil cords and coil cord assemblies to the most stringent reliability and performance specifications. For more than 45 years, C&M coil cords have provided dependable service in diverse military, medical, industrial, portable power and lighting applications.
