The Pittsburgh region’s proud manufacturing tradition, and future, was honored at the eleventh annual Manufacturer of the Year Awards program, presented by the Pittsburgh Business Times.
Ace Wire Spring & Form, an industry leader in the manufacturing of Compression Springs, Extension Springs, Torsion Springs, and Wire Form, has been family owned and operated for over 75 years. Located in McKees Rocks, PA, Ace Wire Spring & Form recognizes and congratulates its fellow finalists Edward Marc Brands, Inc., Sloan Lubrication Systems, and Walter Long Manufacturing in the continuing work of advancing the local manufacturing industry as a whole.
In 1939, Ace Wire Spring & Form started out in the industry with a small coiling machine making garter springs by hand. The owner, Joseph Vodvarka, was a machinist, working hands-on in the upstairs room of his house, which was converted into a small office / shop to produce the garter springs needed at the time. Through the years, Ace Wire Spring & Form grew, and the belief of family was always a part of it. In 1976, Joseph Vodvarka's daughter, Linda, and her husband Rich Froehlich, bought the company and continue to keep Ace Wire Spring & Form a family owned and operated business. Rich and Linda Froehlich have a strong belief in family, and carry over that belief into the Ace Wire Spring & Form culture when doing business. Customers benefit from this by receiving personalized customer service, engineering assistance, and a quality final product suited to meet their needs. In turn, Ace Wire Spring & Form is the one who thanks the customers for making it possible for Ace Wire Spring & Form to be celebrating being in business for 76 years.
