The journey starts in scrapyards, factories, and homes across the U.S. Old cars, discarded appliances, and construction debris, among others, serve as goldmines for the valuable scrap metal that forms the base of our steel wire.
This collected scrap metal is then transported to steel mills. Here, it’s melted down in large furnaces. The impurities, often called “slag”, rise to the top and are removed. What remains is molten steel, ready for shaping and refining.
Once the molten steel is at the desired purity and consistency, it’s drawn into wire forms. It’s passed through a series of dies that progressively decrease in size, allowing for the creation of steel wire of various diameters suitable for different applications.
The wire, once formed, is now ready for transformation into the diverse range of products Midwest Wire offers:
Every piece of wire and every product undergoes stringent checks. It’s not just about meeting industrial benchmarks, but upholding the promise of American quality and the unmatched durability of steel.
