AboutGibbs Wire & Steel Company, Inc.
From one small operation in Connecticut in 1956 to a network of strategically located metal service centers stretching across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico our company has kept pace with continually changing market conditions, meeting the needs of the growing North American metalworking community for some six decades. We are continuously investing in our business: expanding our facilities, upgrading and replacing, slitting, edging, and oscillating equipment, and adding to our already extensive stocks of wire and strip.
For us, a lot of hard work, a little luck, and a well-conceived idea of what the word "service" in Service Center really means have led us to become the primary source for wire and strip in North America. Beyond springmakers, stampers and metal formers, we've expanded into new market areas involving electronics and medical products. And we'll keep growing, too, adding service centers, capacity, new inventory, and secondary processing from Gibbs. In essence, we want to keep working with you throughout the 21st Century just as we have since 1950's. We look forward to being your supplier when you need quality products and demand the level of customer service that has distinguished Gibbs from the very beginning.
We invite you to contact the Gibbs' service center nearest to you for a quotation, sample or assistance in solving your unique problem. We want to be your service center... we can help.
