Our History

Colorful Wire Harnesses With Plastic Connectors

Founded in 1993 on the banks of the Straight River, our family business began by supplying electrical wire harnesses, cable assemblies, and control boxes to manufacturers throughout Central and Southern Minnesota. Over the decades, Straight River Cable, Inc. (SRC) emerged as a highly regarded contract manufacturer among businesses throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

SRC has an unwavering commitment to building electrical assemblies in a timely manner with extraordinary engineering and in-house support. At our founding, we prioritized customer service and exceptional production quality at reasonable prices. This same philosophy is espoused by all SRC employees today.

In Memory of SRC Founder Jerry Sexton

“Quality is our primary concern along with on-time delivery and cost efficiency.”

The words of our father and SRC founder Jerry Sexton (1947 – 2010) will continue to direct everything we do. His legacy will be seen in the individual attention we provide to each customer, the efforts we make to solve their problems, the engineering behind our long-term solutions, and the quality of every single wire harness we produce.
