Founded in 1958, Loos and Company evolved from a three-car garage business, originally situated behind the home of owner A. W. “Gus” Loos and his wife Joan, to a 220,000 square foot plant located in picturesque Pomfret, Connecticut. Starting out in business as a manufacturer’s representative for hardware concerns, Mr. Loos simultaneously imported wire rope and cable from Germany and Japan. He was soon stocking cable, tools and fittings, as well as re-reeling and packaging cable.
In 1962, Loos and Company began manufacturing cable assemblies. Following its success in that area, in 1964, Mr. Loos added facilities to produce plastic-coated cables. Since 1971, with the acquisition of its own stranding and closing machines, Loos has been able to draw wire and strand it into cable in house. Today, the company can draw wire, strand cable, extrude plastics, manufacture hardware and tools for mechanical cable, manufacture cable assemblies, as well as test and package all of the above.
