Preformed Line Products Introduces Ranchmate™, Fencing With A Twist®

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Preformed Line Products (Nasdaq: PLPC) today announced the national launch of Ranchmate™, a line of measurably superior wire fence construction and repair products. The AgSystems Division of Preformed Line Products (PLP) has applied its proprietary technology – originally developed for the utility industry nearly 70 years ago – to its Ranchmate products for use with high tensile smooth and barbed wire fencing.  With Ranchmate, now farmers and ranchers can build and mend fences like utility linesman have built and fixed overhead conductor lines for decades.


Founded in 1947, PLP is known across the globe as a designer, manufacturer and supplier of cable and fiber optics for communications, solar and energy markets. "Ranchmate capitalizes on our proven technology that has become the standard in communications, solar and energy industries and brings it to farmers and ranchers," says Ryan Ruhlman, manager of new business development and marketing communications for PLP.

Ranchmate's line of fencing products includes tools that make fencing quick and easy. Ranchmate products are stronger, more durable, safer and measurably superior to anything else on the market. Ranchmate splices and dead ends are made from Class 3 or higher galvanized steel that won't crack or rust and will likely outlast the fence wire they are used to repair. The technology is so simple to use that no tools are required and anyone can easily mend or construct a fence. 

As part of PLP's commitment to fostering future generations of agricultural professionals, AgSystems provides support to the National FFA organization.  As officially licensed FFA products, every sale of Ranchmate products supports the National FFA organization.

Ranchmate products are available through farm and hardware supply stores nationwide. To learn more about how to use Ranchmate products and experience "Fencing with a Twist ®," visit

Meet the Ranchmate team at the National Hardware Show May 7 – 9, 2013 in Las Vegas at Booth 8952.
