Many cable installations for government and military-related operations require locally made products to support and optimize their systems. For customers that specify this requirement, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is a USA made cable management solution that improves the process of cable installation and maintenance.
Why use USA made cable ties?
Using American made products supports local businesses and jobs which all contribute to the health of the nation’s economy. It’s also typically easier to communicate with a USA-based supplier and manage logistics that include shorter lead times and no tariffs.
Many entities, such as the government, military and defense contractors, prefer or require American made products to support their businesses. These offices and manufacturing facilities rely on data storage, audio and visual equipment, security and control systems to keep operations running smoothly.
How VELCRO® Brand Products serve USA made cable installations
Most textile companies have left the United States over the years which means it’s not as easy to procure locally made products, but Velcro Companies has manufacturing facilities in Manchester and Somersworth, NH. Velcro Companies manufactures a wide variety of VELCRO® Brand products in the United States and is a current supplier to the US military. These home-grown products include VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape which is a proven, reusable cable management solution for contractors who install and maintain data comm, electrical, HVAC, Pro AV, security and control systems.
VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape improves contractors’ jobs by simplifying the process of installation and adds, moves and changes. The closure is easy to open and close, reducing the need for sharp tools that can cause injury to the user and damage to the cable. The soft material also contours to curves in cable pathways which prevents strained or crushed cables that can be expensive and laborious to replace.
These cable ties also help installations align with North American standards such as ANSI/TIA, AVIXA and BICSI. There is also a fire-retardant version to ensure your installations are plenum-rated and compliant with NEC standards.

Government and military standards can be strict, but since VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is made in the USA, and satisfies many cable installation requirements, you can be confident in your installs.
