Wrexham Wire has been a leader in the wire drawing industry for more than 40 years and supplies bespoke products to meet customers’ specific requirements. We pride ourselves on meeting demanding production and delivery deadlines, providing cost-effective, high-quality products, comprehensive testing facilities and excellent customer service. Our key target sectors are automotive and construction. It also provides wire for other applications including springs, engineering wires and electro galvanised wires.

Our customers are Europe’s elite fastener manufacturers who supply automotive, aerospace and industrial sectors with advanced and technically challenging bolts, screws, rivets and modern fixing solutions.

Wrexham Wire employs 80 people and handles approximately 30,000 tonnes of steel annually. All products are manufactured in strict compliance with relevant European standards, including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. 03


COLD HEADING WIRE With over 40 years’ experience in the cold heading industry, Wrexham Wire has developed extensive technical expertise and market knowledge of this specialist area. We have a highly skilled and dedicated workforce, purpose-built facilities and specifically designed manufacturing processes. We supply cold heading wire to the exact quality and performance parameters required by our customers. This includes a wide range of heat treated conditions in an extensive range of boron, aluminium killed and alloy steel grades.

ELECTRO PLATE GALVANISED WIRE Electro plated galvanised wire allows for a much more controlled application of the zinc coating on the wire surface making it suitable for more technically demanding applications. The surface finish of the wire is also much brighter and cleaner than hot dip galvanised wire.


We supply galvanised wire for a wide range of uses including rivet mandrels, control cables, mechanical springs and spoke wires. Depending on the application and customer requirements, our electro galvanised wire can be produced in various sizes and carbon steel grades in diameters from 1.5mm to 4mm.

PRODUCTS ENGINEERING WIRE Our engineering wire is used across many industries for a wide variety of products including: • Plating quality wire • Fencing wire • Chain wire • Roping wire • Hose clip and washer wire • Masonry nail wire • Hose reinforcement wire • Polished copper coated wire • Mesh and conduit wire Size range 1mm-14mm

SPRING WIRE Drawing wire for mattress and furniture springs is one of our main areas of expertise. Produced from high quality carbon steel, our spring wire products are drawn in a range of sizes, tolerances and coatings. Our spring wire can be used on most mattress and seat spring machines including Spuhl, Fides, L&P, Infinity and Miracoli. Applications range from Helical, Pocket, LFK and Bonnell mattresses, to edging wires and wires for zig-zag furniture springs.

BALING WIRE We are a leading UK baling wire manufacturer for various applications to customers in the UK and abroad. Used for both manual and machine baling, our wire is suitable for cardboard, textile, plastic, paper and other materials, as well as packaging and waste management. 05


Our chemical cleaning lines provide a variety of coatings and finishes to meet customers’ specific requirements. We offer HCI pickling, zinc phosphate, polymer, copper wash, reactive soap, lime and non-phosphated coatings. POLYMER INLINE COATING Wrexham Wire was the first company in the cold heading wire industry to introduce polymer inline coating from our UK facility. This process is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to soap and solid lubricant-based coating processes and also facilitates more complex heading applications. Polymer inline coating is water based and is free of heavy metals and VOC (volatile organic compound) and causes no dust or contamination of heading oils & lubricants

Benefits to our customers include: • A more uniform and consistent coating giving greater performance • The ability to control and adjust coat weights to suit customer needs and product demands • Improved output compared to batch coated material • Reduced tool wear and increased lifespan • The capability to produce more complex parts in fewer stages • Reduced energy consumption

GARDO HYBRID COATING Our gardo hybrid coating is a direct replacement for zinc phosphate and offers additional benefits. Unlike phosphate this coating does not require removal prior to heat treatment reducing the processes and therefore cost. In addition, it does not contain heavy metals or CMR substances making it more environmentally friendly.


MECHANICAL CLEANING As an alternative to chemical cleaning, we offer mechanical cleaning of the wire surface prior to drawing on some processes.


We offer a range of packaging solutions to suit the product and customers’ requirements. All materials used are environmentally friendly, recyclable and sustainably sourced. COILS Coil Specification
