Huskie Tools and Jameson (both Spartaco subsidiaries) announce the recent acquisition of the Bulldog Bender brand of patented cable bending tools. As part of this acquisition, Spartaco and its subsidiaries have acquired all business assets and exclusive rights, title, and interest in the Bulldog Bender brand and associated intellectual property.

“Our companies have a long history of providing products and solutions that help professional tradespeople get the job done right the first time," says Tim Beed, chief business development officer for SPARTACO, "The addition of Bulldog Bender cable benders to our product portfolio helps continue that legacy. These products make the difficult task of bending large gauge power cable faster, safer, and easier for professional electrical installers.”

Accurately bending large gauge electrical cables can be extremely difficult, especially in tight spaces. Bulldog Bender provides the power and leverage to easily install, bend, and terminate larger gauge electrical cables in service panels, LB conduit bodies, switchgear, motor controls, wireways, and meter bases. The cable benders were designed and developed by inventor Vince May, a master electrician. Vince previously manufactured the product at his Owensboro, Kentucky facility, Bulldog Manufacturing.

“Over the years I’ve devoted significant time and effort building the brand into what it is today,” said May. “Huskie Tools and Jameson represents the perfect fit for the brand. I’m excited to see what they can do with Bulldog Bender, to grow the business and reach its full potential.”

The Bulldog Bender product line consists of four different models sized to accommodate electrical cable up to 1000 MCM. The product is made in the United States at the SPARTACO facility in Clover, South Carolina.
