Leading custom cable assembly manufacturer Data Cable Co. Inc. recently announced that the firm has been purchased by Canadian Financial Counsel Inc., a Canadian private equity firm, following the retirement of founders and long-standing owners Dick and Lita Fearon, after 41 years.

Our customers will continue to receive the same high-quality products & services, competitive pricing, and exceptional customer service from Data Cable that they expect.”
