About CBC

Goal and Philosophy:

Years ago I was talking to a friend about a sales position he was hiring for.

I told him I didn’t think I could be in sales; that I didn’t have the necessary skills. He told me something that has stuck with me ever since. He said: “All you have to do is solve the customer’s problem.”

At Custom Battery Cables, our goal is to be successful by honestly and fairly solving

the customer’s problem whether it’s fixing a hard starting problem for a snow plow or providing good looking cables for a show car.

History:

I started building battery cables for my own truck (a 1948 Willy’s CJ-2A) while in the “Diesel and Heavy Equipment” certificate program at Maricopa Technical Community College (now

GateWay).

I continued building them for various types of heavy construction equipment while working as a heavy equipment mechanic from 1979 to 1985 for companies like Mountain Bell (Qwest / CenturyLink), Naumann-Clark

(now Naumann-Hobbs, a forklift dealer) and
Sunstate Equipment

.

In 1985, I changed careers and went to work at Intel Corporation as a technician in the Military Products Group

while I was going to school nights for a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology.

During my 29-year electronics career, I have worked in a variety of positions including a circuit design engineer on chips that go into desktop computers; a failure analysis engineer on chips that go into anti-lock brake controllers and a test engineer for chips that go into cell phones.

In other words, I know about heavy-duty trucks and I know about electronics and electrical systems.

In the decades since I made that first battery cable, I continued to make cables for my friend’s cars and trucks as well as my own vehicles (since I couldn’t buy good ones). In all that time,

I have never had to replace a cable due to corrosion or overheat failure.

That’s right!

I had battery cables on my 1948 Willy’s CJ-2A that were 20 years

old and still working great when I replaced them to add a battery disconnect switch.

Believing that there are others who want the best heavy-duty, high-quality parts and are disappointed by auto-store cables, I decided to start CustomBatteryCables.Com in 2003 in a spare room in my house.

We continue to offer what we believe are the best cables for the price anywhere.

So, if you are ready to spend a little more to get the very best for your car or truck you’ve come to the right place.

Please take the time to see how our cables are different than store bought battery cables

here.

Sincerely,
Vince

We are very lucky to have Jess doing our sales and marketing (commercial sales, FaceBook, Instagram, eBay and Amazon sales). Jess moved to Arizona with husband Vega from Pittsburgh about 2 years ago. She and Vega recently started a handmade toy company with the goal of eventually coming out with educational games designed to help autistic children learn to communicate.  It's very cool stuff.  She posts daily with ideas for activities for children.  If you have small children do yourself a favor and check out her Instagram @funbyflowers.

Dallas works at our booth at the local car shows and did the modeling for our website.  Funny thing, the people i meet at the car shows always seem more interested in her than in me.  🙂 She's studying at Mesa Community College and wants to work with special need kids. She also does some semi-professional modeling.  You can check out some very beautiful pictures of her on Instagram at @odddallas.
