Our clients say: "CWI is the #1 wire supplier."
  • I wanted to thank CWI Houston for providing outstanding service this past Saturday on an emergency basis. We needed some high alloy wire for a rush job in the Oil & Gas Industry and you guys made it happen for us! And I might add that this is not the first time CWI Houston has come through for us in a pinch.
    We wanted to “Thank You” for your continued support and help in keeping our emergency project on track. Steve Schurer & Kevin Schurer from Mass Transfer Ltd., Customer since 1980

  • From a purchasing responsibility Central Wire is a model supplier to deal with. They are quick to respond with quotes and order acknowledgements. They understand the ever changing demands we receive from our customers and are more than willing to do what they can to accommodate our requests. They remain consistent in delivering a high quality product. Kathy Pearce, Seaway Bolt & Specials Corp.

  • We have been working with Central Wire for years, they have exceptional Technical and Customer service people. They have been very responsive to our needs and take that extra effort to ensure that we are happy with their product and services. We are very happy with them as our Primary Vendor of Stainless Steel Wire. Dave Oas, Quality Manager at Seaway Bolt.

  • I love Central Wire's 316 L soft stainless steel. It has rapidly become my favorite metal to make jewelry with. The reason I recommend my friends to you is because your stainless is far better than anything else that's on the market. It's soft enough to work with, it's skin safe even for people with preexisting nickel allergies, and it never tarnishes like silver inevitably does. Erica Lyons from Wire Wrap World

  • The service is excellent and the personnel are amazing, always responsive and a pleasure to work with. No request is out of the question and always accommodated within a reasonable timeframe. The products that we purchase always meet or exceed expectations.
    The staff at Micro Wire enjoy our partnership with Central Wire Industries and hope to continue for many years to come! Steve Schurer & Kevin Schurer from Micro Wire Products (1980) Ltd., Customer since 1980
