Southwire SIMpull REEL™ Named EC&M Magazine Product of the Year

This is the sixth time in nine years that one of Southwire’s products received such an honor

May 6, 2015

By making it possible for a single person to safely and efficiently maneuver a 6,000-pound reel through tight spaces on a job site and set up and pay off the reel right beside electrical equipment/conduit, Southwire’s SIMpull REEL™ payoff was selected by Electrical Construction & Maintenance magazine as Product of the Year in the Wire & Cable (Accessories & Equipment) category.

This marks the sixth time in nine years that one of Southwire’s products received such an honor. A panel of judges — including electrical professionals representing the design/ engineering, contracting and facilities/maintenance industries — reviewed the entries. The 42 most innovative products of the year were recognized by EC&M. The category winners will go on to compete for the 2015 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold, and Silver awards, which will be determined through an upcoming online readers’ poll and announced in EC&M’s August 2015 issue.

Southwire’s SIMpull REEL maneuverable payoff system eliminates the need for additional equipment and makes it possible for one worker to safely and efficiently maneuver a 6,000-pound reel through spaces as narrow as a 36-inch doorway. The SIMpull REEL payoff carries all of the hardware and easily sets up to complete the payoff.
