Who We Are

Ace Wire & Cable Co., Inc. was founded in 1952 by Jack Firestone and has been owned and operated by three generations of the Firestone family. Jerry and Harris Firestone are directly involved in the day-to-day operations in keeping with the strong family commitment started by Jack Firestone. Ace’s mission is to be the number one wire, cable, and connectivity product distributor in the Northeast region, serving New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and southern Connecticut and strives to have every customer think of Ace as the primary source in fulfilling their project requirements.


With over 60 years of industry expertise, Ace is committed to servicing the needs of contractors, installers, system integrators, OEMs and end users by providing quality products, competitive prices and excellent service through its’ knowledgeable and courteous staff.

Ace is a master stocking distributor and offers customers a complete product package for all building wiring systems including building wire, data, voice, video, power, fire alarm, security and industrial products and offers services designed to enhance the project management experience. Ace is here to assist from project proposal to project completion. Unlike many distributors who outsource essential functions, Ace offers a variety of value-added and in-house services at both locations. Our programs have been developed to meet or exceed customers’ day-to-day contracting and installation needs.


Ace prides itself on its’ ability to give personalized, professional customer service with access to knowledgeable technical support staff to assist with project needs. In-house cutting, striping and paralleling services are available at both locations. With its’ own fleet of heavy duty tailgate trucks, Ace can ensure that delivery needs be met effectively, efficiently and in a timely manner. With their warehouse in Woodside, Queens and their new 30,000 sq. foot warehouse facility in Avenel, NJ, Ace Wire is conveniently located for easy access from the New York Metropolitan area to upstate New York and southern Connecticut as well as southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania.


Ace Wire & Cable Co., Inc. is a member of the Local Union No. 3 – International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Supply Division.
