Interpower manufactures high-quality North American and International electrical cords & cord sets in customized lengths and colors for global markets. These cords and cord sets are manufactured in Oskaloosa and Lamoni, Iowa—made in the U.S.A.

Interpower North American and International country-specific cords are available in various lengths and colors. This includes not only power cords, but also accessory cords such as jumper cords with IEC plugs and connectors that allow for the integration of equipment into one power distribution unit or an accessory power strip. With minimum order requirements, Interpower can help you design for global markets providing the end user with the correct connections to the local mains power supply. Interpower cords and cord sets meet the standards and compliance of most countries in the world.

Above-and-Beyond Testing

All Interpower cords are tested in both design and production phases. Whether it’s customized cord sets or electrical components for global industries, Interpower’s cords, cord sets, and components are continually tested. In fact, Interpower testing exceeds UL and IEC standards.

“We test more than is required for our own benefit,” Interpower Product Development Manager Ron Barnett said. Barnett has been with Interpower since 2005. “The standards, such as the one for the UL 2556 Vertical Flame Test, are test minimums. We go beyond the standards because it lends better reliability to our design—products become more dependable in that regard.”


The Interpower Testing Laboratory is located in Ames, Iowa, and is ground zero for the majority of critical tests that determine whether Interpower products such as cords, plugs, sockets and power strips (along with a variety of specialized electronic components) meet or exceed North American and International standards.

“Some products we test more often than others due to the volume we manufacture, such as our line of C13 cords and cord sets,” Barnett said.

Whether ordering 1 cord or 5,000, Interpower provides customized solutions. Interpower cords are American made, which streamlines domestic orders to help keep customers on schedule.
