The business of A-1 Wire Tech is focused on specialty high-performance nickel alloy and stainless steel wire products drawn-to-order and supplied for use in a broad range of applications, from heat treatment to food processing, from bicycle spokes to fast-food fryers.
Serving a customer base throughout North America, direct and through sales representatives, the A-1 Wire Tech emphasis is on service, from inquiry to after-sale support. Recent investments at the Rockford facility have included fine-wire drawing capacity, straighten and cut equipment for bar products, a turks head machine for rolled sections and a shaver for aircraft-quality, seam-free wire. Strand annealing capacity has been doubled with the recent installation of a second bright annealing furnace for processing 0.312 - 0.032 in (7.9 to 0.8 mm) diameter wires.
State-of-the-art equipment and skilled personnel assure quality control at every stage of the manufacturing operation, covering physical and metallurgical testing, surface quality and size inspection.
