Our Advantage


Tangent is a solution-oriented contractor, which is most valuable during fast paced construction or renovation projects. Our clients also benefit from the added value of Tangent's experience with integrating the design and installation of electrical, telecommunications and security systems cabling. Our ability to provide an experienced team of project management and field personnel allows our clients one point of contact to address any design or coordination changes. Our reputation is the heart of Tangent Cable, and our goal is to provide every client with the most professional, competent, and valued installation and service that is possible in our industry.


We currently have 15 service trucks, over 30 field technicians and 9 full time office personnel. We have a bucket truck for sign and pole light work. Emergency service is available for all clients. We schedule service requests on a daily basis, and add to our field staff as needed for large or long-term projects. Due to Tangent’s lasting relationships with clients, we regularly provide services for major buildings, campus sites and multiple office locations. Our normal service area includes DE, Southeastern PA, NJ and MD, but at our clients request, we also manage and perform work on cabling projects throughout the country.


We are exceptional in our ability to retain a core group of employees with years of experience in our industry and familiarity with our clients’ facilities. Tangent is committed to providing these employees with training, tools, and equipment necessary to insure a safe and healthy working environment. We always strive to provide our employees with an atmosphere where they can advance and prosper, while maintaining a balance between work and family.


Many of our clients provide their services on a 24/7 basis with disaster recovery and backup plans in place. We are aware that these clients also expect and rely on Tangent to provide our services with minimal interruption. Our office emergency response plan includes:


Tangent’s internet and VoIP services have separate switches, reducing the likelihood of failure. If a failure occurs, phone calls are forwarded to project management cellphones.  Our office server and accounting PC’s are supported by UPS equipment. Finally, for the security of our data, we have a cloud-based offsite back-up service.



Tangent employees participate in all required electrical and telecommunications continuing education. We keep our employees’ manufacturers warranty re-certifications, BICSI credits, first aid and OSHA training current. We also have vendors come to our office to provide training for any new products, tools, or testing equipment that we purchase.


Tangent project managers and job foreman evaluate and prepare for project safety, and every employee is encouraged to identify and report safety issues or concerns on a project site. In addition Tangent participates in the State of Delaware Workplace Safety Program.


Because our technicians work in sensitive and secure areas of client facilities and we install security system equipment, Tangent maintains a Delaware State Alarm license. This requires FBI background checks for our core employees, allowing us to offer a secure workforce to our clients.


Tangent participates in the construction requirements of LEED certified buildings and Green initiatives. At the office level, we use a collection service for all recyclable materials, plastics, magazines, batteries, paper and cardboard. We recycle scrap copper and aluminum cable and wooden cable reels. We also use the Waste Management Lamp Tracker recycle program.
