State-of-the-art facility provides increased production and testing space, improves process flow, and allows for growth of customized cable engineering solutions.
Cleveland, OH, USA, December 15, 2022 – PMI Industries, Inc., a global leader in engineered solutions for underwater marine cable connectors and subsea cable terminations, moves to a new, state-of-the-art facility in January 2023. The move increases production and testing space by more than two-thirds, removes manufacturing constraints, and improves capabilities, resulting in better lead times and inventory control.
“We are excited for the next chapter in PMI’s history with this modernization of our production and office spaces,” said Bob Centa, President. “We are expanding our design, manufacturing, and testing capabilities and expect to dramatically improve our operational efficiencies. The move positions us to grow in the industries we already serve, increase the product and service offerings to our customers, and expand our geographic reach.”
The new facility offers room for a streamlined process flow that will impact many aspects of PMI’s operations, including access to tools and equipment, material handling, and other logistics improvements. Increased space also benefits PMI’s in-house dynamic cable testing and analysis, a value-added step among the capabilities PMI offers. Many at-sea conditions can be simulated by PMI through its testing, which is used to find cable system vulnerabilities or confirm satisfactory performance before the cable is deployed. In-house testing is available as an independent service to third parties, as well as to the industries PMI serves: oil and gas; marine and seismic survey; naval and military; offshore wind, wave, and tidal and sustainable renewable energy; ocean exploration and research; and university and research institutes.
According to Centa, the across-town move will not adversely impact PMI employees, allowing the company to maintain access to its current talent pool and attract new employees to accommodate growth. Additionally, the larger facility, located at 990 Resource Drive, Cleveland, Ohio 44131, U.S.A., offers easy access for delivery and pickup due to its proximity to major highways.

PMI Industries is excited to be an exhibitor at the 2022 International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF), taking place April 26-28 in Atlantic City, NJ. The three-day offshore wind energy conference is bringing attendees from the global offshore wind industry to learn about the latest offshore wind and renewable energy technology and market trends.
As an exhibitor at IPF, we are sharing information about how our underwater cable solutions are supporting offshore wind technology. PMI underwater cable solutions, which are made in the USA, include:
- Dynamic and static cable protection
- Tow and seismic survey suspension systems
Introducing a new product
PMI is introducing a new cable termination solution: the Hang-Off Termination. Based on PMI’s proven EVERGRIP™ Termination technology, the new Hang-Off Termination securely clamps the cable to the wind turbine or platform base. It doesn’t use epoxy, making it faster, safer, and more efficient for offshore teams to install.
Among the Hang-Off Termination’s features and benefits are:
- Eliminates epoxy cure time
- Split design for ease of installation
- Earthing connection for safe grounding
- Scalable and interchangeable designs for dynamic applications
- Material and coating options
- Carbon-neutral installation
The Hang-Off Termination design is patent pending.
The PMI advantage
PMI, celebrating a history of 38 years in 2022, services industries focused in
- Underwater engineering solutions, manufacturing, procurement, and in-house cable testing
- Oil & gas and renewables
- Research institutes
PMI is utilizing our decades of experience in ways that benefit the rapid expansion of the offshore wind and renewable energy industries. Our goal is to help customers increase efficiency, reduce downtime, and improve installation and deployment times.
