History

Madsen Wire has a rich history in wire products.

The start of Madsen Wire Products dates back to 1938.  We got our start as Jaxon Wire, a regional producer of fabricated wire products located in Jackson, Michigan.

Jaxon Wire was an established leader in the development and manufacture of a wide range of wire, wire mesh and expanded metal baskets and containers.  Jaxon Wire cornered the market on material handling products including “Jaxon Rugged Jax” baskets and containers. 

In 1981 the company changed ownership and became known as Madsen Wire Products, Inc.   In 1982, the company moved a few miles down the road to Orland, Indiana just over the Michigan state line. 

The company was acquired in 1988 by Wall Industries.  At that time Madsen Wire was the major supplier of wire parts to K-Mart stores. 

Over time and as the retail market changed we began to focus on store fixtures and the retail point of purchase displays for many new customers.  We also got into the bakery and food service industries. 

In 2005 Madsen Wire was then acquired by General Cage who was a major provider of dog cages and other wire products to the pet industry. 

As many wire cages started going oversees for manufacturing, General Cage decided to sell the assets of Madsen Wire to family members who were involved in the growth of the metal fabrication company, Noble Industries, located in Noblesville, IN.  This sale was a great complement to the sheet metal products sold at Noble Industries. 

The future is bright for Madsen Wire as the wire forming industry is rebounding in the United States.  We look forward to adding much to the already great history of Madsen Wire Products.
