Cable Components Group (CCG), founded in 1998, designs, engineers and manufactures extruded products for wire and cable, fiber optic cables and industrial non-wovens. CCG’s 6-LAN™ crosswebs are foamed and include patented designs for Category 6, 6e and 6A LAN cables. CCG’s FluoroFoam® is a patented chemical foaming agent of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) or perfluoro methyl alkoxy (MFA) for use in insulations, tapes and 6-LAN crosswebs. Foamed fluorine-based products are particularly suited for the evolving Power over Ethernet (POE) or Power over LAN standards. These standards require materials with enhanced thermal stability, and foamed FEP or MFA insulation and jacketing offer an added safety margin for POE applications.
For the POE standard from 0.5 AMPs to 1.0 AMP for Limited Power (LP), CCG offers these jacketing materials, as well as FluoroFoam insulation and crosswebs.
- 200°C-rated FluoroFoam FEP or MFA Jacket with FluoroFoam insulation and crossweb for 0.8, 0.9, and 1.0 AMP POE;
- 150°C-rated PVDF Limited Combustible Fluoro-Alloy Jacket with FluoroFoam insulation and crossweb for 0.6 and 0.7 AMP POE;
- 90°C-rated Low Smoke PVC Jacket with FluoroFoam insulation and crossweb for 0.5 AMP POE.
All of these new materials are compounded by CCG in an effort to vertically integrate materials to service our customers with innovative, higher temperature-rated, fire retardant and foamable materials. CCG will use this compounding capability to service our in-house extrusion needs for crosswebs, tapes, tubes and monofilaments, as well as offer for sale these new foamable, as well as fire retardant compounds that are especially designed for copper wire and fiber optic cabling.

HALL Industries has been a part of The MGS Group since 1994. Hall Industries was founded in 1975 by Marcus Hall and became well renowned in the wire and cable industry over the years for engineered solutions for a variety of industry challenges. In October 1994, MGS Manufacturing Inc. of Rome, NY completed the purchase of substantially all of the assets of HALL Industries Inc., located in Branford, CT.
The MGS Group maintains HALL Industries engineering excellence in our R&D/Service office in North Branford, CT. We continue to design and manufacture systems to handle most any product from sensitive optical fiber to 1000MCM power cable. We also can handle odd shapes; tubing, ribbon, tape, and armored products. Our Automatic and Semiautomatic Takeups are extremely reliable for on-line packaging of a wide range of products and reels at high speeds, resulting in significant cost savings. Our solid designs begin with robust steel frames, progress to include the most advanced recipe driven PLC controls, and are supported by qualified engineers and technicians who respond when a customer needs help.
HALL products include Fully Automatic Packaging Systems with Robotic Depalletizer/Palletizer, Payoffs and Takeups (Moveable Arm, Roll Thru, Cantilever Shaft, Multiple Spindles, Cone Pintle, Dual Semiautomatic And Automatic), Dancers, Vertical and Horizontal Accumulators, Capstans (Caterpillar, Belt Wrap, And Dual Drum), Fiber Optic Handling Systems, Rewinders, and Length Counters.
Many of our systems are versatile and can produce reels and/or coils, allowing the flexibility to respond to your customer needs with the same Takeup. Our success with Automatic Coiling Machines arrives from our flexibility allowing a range of products and coil sizes to be produced on the same machine. It also includes banding, shrink wrap, labeling, and palletizing. Our line of Fully Automatic Takeup systems, the FAT18 and most recently the FAT820 SFL Series has delivered the well-recognized MGS/Hall/Northampton reliability and flexibility to the application.
