The Book of Exodus, one of the oldest literary works in the Western World, documents the earliest wire-making process. Biblical-era wire was made by hammering thin metal sheets, folding them onto each other, and then pulling or rolling them into thread. (Exodus 39:3)
Copper and silver wires used in household items have been excavated from Neolithic graves dating back to 2800 B.C.
The earliest forms of metallic wire unearthed by archaeologists date back thousands of years. The original wire discovered comes from the age when Egyptian mummies were entombed with gold adornments.
The wire drawing process, the most distinctive characteristic of our industry, is mentioned in Roman archives from A.D. 400.
Commonly used gauge numbers originated with the sizing of wire rod. The rod was the starting point for the gauge and was referenced as zero gauge. Higher gauge numbers represented the number of times a rod had to be cold-drawn to obtain a size.
