GEORGETOWN, SC - May 4, 2017 - COASTAL WIRE COMPANY, INC., the premier producer of wire products to the recycling, agricultural and galvanizing industries, today announces the formation of a new Equipment Services Division. The new business to be led by John Bagley, Vice President of Equipment Services, will bring together the people, resources and components to keep your wire tying equipment performing at its best. Coastal Wire will offer a full range of wire tier parts, technical services and onsite or in house service training. The Equipment Services Division is a natural extension to our acquisition of the Arizona galvanizing mill last November.
Coastal Wire Company President and CEO, Doug Wendel Jr. commented, “This new division supports our goal of providing for all the needs of our recycling customers and furthering our strategic growth strategies.” Adds Wendel, “John is the right person to lead this division. He brings nearly 20 years of professional experience in the tier industry.” John Bagley is looking forward to the challenge noting, "For nearly 40 years, Coastal Wire has grown and evolved with the recycling industry. I look forward to helping Coastal Wire deliver the products and services that help our customers meet their productivity goals.”
Founder and owner Michael Coward continues to look for opportunities to best serve Coastal Wire clients. “Partnering with our customers has always been vital to providing the highest level of service, and by incorporating world class parts and service into our product offerings Coastal Wire will be better positioned to meet all of our customers’ needs.”
Coastal Wire customers are already taking full advantage of this expertise. The Equipment Services Division will be based out of our Georgetown, SC facility.
About Coastal Wire, Inc.
In 1978, Coastal Wire Co. began production in rented facilities in Andrews, South Carolina, manufacturing high carbon spring wire for the bedding industry. In 1980, the company installed wire annealing furnaces, and redirected production to the manufacture of black annealed, automatic baling wire and bale ties. In the last 35 years we have expanded operations three times, innovated several new products, including our unique KleenGreen™ bale ties and staple free boxed wire products. In 2016 Coastal Wire Company acquired the assets of Casa Grande Wire, one of the largest independently owned and operated wire producers in North America. This added a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility with a state of the art galvanizing line, wire drawing machines and other complementary equipment associated with the manufacture of agricultural wire and expanded Coastal Wire Company’s reach. From recycling to agriculture industries, our continuing research & development efforts allowed us to remain at the competitive forefront of wire manufacturing.
