Long gone are the days in 1898 when Marlin Steel’s Kaspar Wire Works’s founder, August Kaspar, sat in the shade of a South Texas oak tree while forming and weaving wire into a basket with his bare hands and a pair of pliers. In fact, those original days were few in number because of our founder’s determination to seek out advanced processes and incorporate them into his growing practice. He was both an innovator and engineer. It was only a few years into the wire business when he purchased a wire straightening machine. And since that very first machinery purchase, Marlin Steel’s Kaspar Wire Works has consistently maintained a dominating presence in the industry for productivity, quality and innovative ability. The diversity of our wire capabilities allows us to create superior products across a spectrum of industries and necessities, including food, safety, construction, point-of-purchase displays, medical equipment, saddlery hardware, material handling, recreation, oil and gas, and components for small applications. Each of our experts has over 20 years of experience, and they are trained to discover the most efficient and long-lasting method to accomplish your wire product needs.
