Madsen Steel Wire's History Timeline
The 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.
