SmartWire® Value-Added Services

Value is what Windy City Wire is all about. It is the one single word that sums up our organization. We believe in providing value in everything that we do. A value that is tangible, real and evident in every product we sell and every action we take.

Below is an overview of our value-added services that create what we like to refer to as The Windy City Wire Difference:

SmartWire Select®

Companies like to talk about service, at Windy City Wire we back the talk up. Because of our tremendous confidence in our employees, our systems, and our supply partners we have decided to lay it all on the line. If a SmartWire Select item is back-ordered, you don’t pay. If we don’t ship the SmartWire Select item the same day, you don’t pay. We offer these guarantees through our SmartWire Select Program.

SmartWire® Packaging


Windy City Wire understands the importance of your image. We understand how much time and effort is put forth everyday to build on and enhance your standing in the market place. This is why we package SmartWire the way we do. Don’t show up at your client’s facility with a rag tag box or cheap plastic spool. Show up with SmartWire, a product you will be proud to present, display, pull and terminate.

State-of-the-Art Bar Coding

Windy City Wire is committed to having the most accurate shipments in the wire and cable industry. That’s why we have invested in a state-of-the-art bar code inventory management system. This technology is tied directly into our operating system, giving our sales representatives and customers (through the use of our eCommerce portal) real-time access to our inventory. This system has also been programmed and designed to all but eliminate the chance of shipping errors.

Shipping Philosophy

Windy City Wire’s shipping philosophy is comprised of two elements. The first is to protect the integrity of your order through preparation, transit and delivery, and the second is to get those products to you in less than three business days (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

Order Confirmation

To ensure order and shipment accuracy, Windy City Wire will send an order confirmation via fax, e-mail or both upon completion of order entry. We suggest that you review and compare this document to your purchase order so you can confirm that there are no communication or data entry errors on your order.


WCW has invested heavily to leverage the power of the Internet. As a result, our Electronic Commerce and Information Center (ECIC) has set the standard against which all other sites in the wire and cable industry are judged. What’s more, all data is provided in real-time, so you’ll always be viewing accurate, up-to-the-minute information. These resources are available to all users 24-7 and are Smartphone friendly. 

Sales Excellence

Sales Rep

Every account at Windy City Wire is assigned a single account representative, so every time you call you are dealing with the same individual. An individual that is familiar with you, your company and the nuances that accompany the servicing of your account. You will be dealing with an individual that understands the customer base you service and the systems you install. When you do business with Windy City Wire you will be working with an expert, not an order taker.
