Central Wire Industries (CWI) has announced the acquisition of Sanlo, Inc. (Sanlo), a manufacturer and distributor of galvanized and stainless wire rope, custom extruded products, and engineered cable assemblies located in Michigan City, Indiana. Central Wire Industries manufactures and distributes stainless steel, nickel alloy, and copper and brass wire and welding wire products throughout the world. The Company, which maintains nine manufacturing facilities – six in the United States, two in Canada, and one in the United Kingdom – has over 400 employees.
The acquisition of Sanlo by Central Wire Inc. (CWI’s US Subsidiary) marks the third acquisition by CWI in the past two years; Sanlo joins Strand Core, a manufacturer of stainless and galvanized strand, wire rope, and rope assemblies (September 2014) located in Milton, Fl. and CWI UK Ltd., (formerly Hempel Wire), a manufacturer of stainless and nickel alloy wire specializing in a wide range of rolled profiled wire (February 2015) located in Rotherham, United Kingdom as a recent CWI acquisition.
“Sanlo brings to CWI and Strand Core a depth of product development and technical sales which further deepens all operations. Sanlo is geographically located in the right area and has a “value defined” workforce; capable and experienced,” said Paul From, President and CEO of Central Wire Industries. We have been impressed with Sanlo’s team and I know they are all eager to see growth and development of new global markets, precisely what CWI can bring to the table.”
