The year was 1947. World War II had just ended. Two brothers from the west side of Chicago had an idea - lamp shade frames. A-Wire Corporation was founded. In 1961 the company started a decorative wire and artificial flower division with designs by SAMONI.
Over the years additional capabilities were added including:
The addition of these capabilities transformed A-Wire Corporation to A-Wire & Tube Fabricating Corporation and now to AWC Industries. The evolution from decorative products such as brass scrolls for headboards, point of purchase displays, accessories for tractors and mowers to large size storage systems for electronic voting booths and including our powder coating facility gives AWC Industries a unique perspective.
We are the second generation - three brothers - now there is a 3rd generation on board which assures a long term commitment to our customers. We are directly involved in every aspect of our business, from sales, estimating and engineering to production and quality control.
As we welcome the 3rd generation into our family business, many things have changed, but our mission statement - QUALITY AS A WAY OF LIFE- will always remain the same. Just like our father believed all those years ago, excellent quality & outstanding customer service has and will always be the key to our continuing success.
