  • About Us

    Autac was founded by Robert N. Burkle in 1947. Throughout his thirty years of running this company, his philosophy was simplethe customer comes first.

    Since the Burkle family returned to the helm of Autac in 1999, we have strived to re-implement this basic yet fundamental principle. We have also established a “team management approach” to provide our valued customer with total quality in both service and product.

    Autac is a manufacturer of high quality coiled cords, or what are often referred to as curly cords. Since 1947, Autac has been producing custom manufactured retractile cords to meet various applications and specifications.

    The company is capable of producing coil cord in a wide variety of gauge sizes, number of conductors, lengths, and colors, including clear. Customers can choose retractile cord from stock or spec out their own retractile cord. Tinned copper as well as bare copper conductors are available. Unshielded or shielded cords are an option. A variety of insulation and jacketing materials are available, including PVC, TPE, Polypropylene, Polyurethane, and Neoprene. We can also ROJ jackets as well as strip conductors. Autac’s flexibility is also conducive for small quantity orders.

The company’s industrial retractile cords and retractile power cords are in service throughout the United States and Canada with UL/CSA approvals. Autac’s retractile coil cords have been used in various capacities from test leads and power cords to cord sets and telecommunication cable assemblies. Other examples of where Autac’s curly cords have been used are in high performance racecars, industrial ice cream making machines, and arcade games.



  • Autac’s motto of “Service through Inventory” is demonstrated by the extensive inventory on hand of not only finished coiled cable, but straight bulk cable as well.
