Madsen's anniversary logoCustom Wire Fabrication: Highest Quality, Fastest Delivery

First Established in 1938, Madsen Steel Wire is a growing full service custom wire manufacturer producing custom fabricated wire products for clients all over the United States, Canada and Mexico. Operating primarily as a custom wire manufacturer, Madsen Steel Wire has cultivated special product design skills that make the job shop process run smoothly.

In an ever-expanding wire market, Madsen Steel Wire has gained widespread recognition for versatility, craftsmanship, quality and on time delivery. Some custom wire manufacturers stick to just wire fabrication; Madsen Steel Wire starts as a wire manufacturer and will complete projects with sheet metal parts, tube fabrication, welding, powder coating, assembly, packing and multiple point distribution of our customer’s products.

Our wire fabrication capabilities are offered in bright basic low carbon and stainless steel materials with diameters ranging from 14 gauge to ½ inch wire. As a top notch wire manufacturer, we pay special attention to the customer’s design assemblies. We have the expertise to prototype and manufacture from the simplest to the most advanced design in both OEM and Point of Purchase markets.

As a leading wire product manufacturer, we offer straight and cut-off wire services along with wire forming, welding and finishing with powder coating or plating. Multiple point distribution of our customer’s products to locations in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Kentucky and throughout the entire United States is easy since we are ten miles from the intersections of Interstate 80, 90 and I-69.

Revitalizing a Community: Madsen Steel Wire’s Impact on Bronson, MI

Courtesy of Governor Whitmer's officeMadsen Steel Wire’s acquisition of a 100,000 sq. ft. facility in Bronson, Michigan, is more than just a business expansion – it’s a revitalization of the community. This move is particularly significant as it marks the first new business to establish itself in Bronson since 2008, bringing with it an influx of job opportunities that will boost the local economy.

Although vacant for 15 years prior, the facility used to be a powerhouse in the Bronson community and employed many. By acquiring it, Madsen Steel Wire has been able to create jobs and empower women in manufacturing by hiring from the local, rural community. The facility has been fully transformed into a modern factory equipped with a state-of-the-art powder coating line capable of coating various wire and sheet metal products. The new powder coating line establishes Madsen Steel Wire as a one-stop shop for industries such as bakeries, automotive, lighting, grocery stores, commercial kitchens, and more that require protection for their wire products. It also features 5-stage washing.

Redefining Wire Production: New Top-of-the-Line Machinery

Madsen Steel Wire is thrilled to introduce two top-of-the-line machines that are transforming how we create precision wire products: the SCHLATTER MG950 and TRUMPF TruBend 3000 Press Brake. These investments represent our goal of delivering the highest quality wire products with the fastest production times. 

SCHLATTER MG950 Welding System

Our SCHLATTER MG950 welding system is the only one in the Western Hemisphere. Capable of providing dimensionally accurate gridwork and shelving for various applications, this machine supports our commitment to continuous quality improvements. The benefits of the SCHLATTER MG950 include:

  • Shorter lead times
  • Reduced downtime
  • Energy efficiency (utilizes only 1/30th of the power from the grid)
  • Capable of producing 6,000 welds per minute

TRUMPF TruBend 3000 Press Brake

Madsen's New Trumpf 3100We acquired the TRUMPF TruBend Series 3000 as part of our commitment to investing in the most advanced fabrication technology available. This investment allows us to deliver superior-quality parts with fast delivery times, all while conforming to tight tolerance requirements. Known to the sheet metal bending industry as one of the most innovative press brakes on the market, the TRUMPF TruBend Series 3000 offers the following advantages:

  • Easily manufacture parts with complex bends and strict specifications
  • Unparalleled bending automation
  • Ease of use
  • Greater design flexibility

History

Madsen Steel Wire's History TimelineThe start of Madsen Steel Wire dates back to 1938. We got our start as Jaxon Wire, a regional producer of fabricated wire products located in Jackson, Michigan.

Jaxon Wire was an established leader in the development and manufacture of a wide range of wire, wire mesh and expanded metal baskets and containers. Jaxon Wire cornered the market on material handling products including “Jaxon Rugged Jax” baskets and containers.

In 1981, the company changed ownership and became known as Madsen Steel Wire Products, Inc. In 1982, the company moved a few miles down the road to Orland, Indiana just over the Michigan state line.

The company was acquired in 1988 by Wall Industries, and was the major supplier of wire parts to K-Mart stores.

Over time and as the retail market changed, we began to focus our custom wire forming on store fixtures and the retail point of purchase displays for many new customers. We also got into the bakery and commercial food service industries.

In 2005, Madsen Steel Wire Products was then acquired by General Cage who was a major provider of dog cages and other wire products to the pet industry.

As many wire cages started going overseas for manufacturing, General Cage decided to sell the assets of Madsen Steel Wire Products in 2012 to family members who were involved in the growth of the metal fabrication company, Nobel Industries, located in Noblesville, IN.

In 2021, Madsen Steel Wire was acquired by Marlin Steel. Since then, we have been rapidly expanding to provide powder coating services as well as acquiring many new top-of-the-line machines for our wire manufacturing operations.
