Governor Scott Walker Celebrates Northern Wire

MERRILL, Wisconsin - Governor Scott Walker attended Northern Wire's 40th anniversary celebration today, August 26.
Established in 1973, Northern Wire has grown from a small company manufacturing wear-rods for snowmobile skis into one of the largest privately held wire forming companies in the United States.
They serve the nation's industrial markets with custom wire products for agricultural machinery, construction, and recreation vehicles.
Northern Wire also provides cold heading, welding, and secondary operations like drilling and tapping for their customers.
Governor Walker said, "I was here in 2011 assessing damages when the manufacturing facility was struck by a tornado. Northern Wire demonstrated resilience and has continued to provide their wire products to both Wisconsin and the nation, as well as rebuild and expand despite this setback.  Northern Wire is an excellent example of Wisconsin's manufacturing strength, and we are here to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the company and its employees."
