ACS Industries Inc


ACS Industries, Inc. is the world leader in engineered knitted and woven wire mesh solutions.  Founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 1939, American Copper Sponge, Inc. manufactured just that: knitted copper sponges.  After experiencing heavy growth in the knitted wire mesh business unit and moving the corporate headquarters to Lincoln, RI in 1959, management changed the company’s name to ACS Industries, Inc. in 1960 and now is a major producer from plants in Mexico and China..

Today, ACS Industries, Inc. leads the industry in wire mesh technologies and is ready to take on our customers’ most difficult and important projects.  As the world’s largest vertically integrated wire mesh manufacturer, we are able to offer competitive pricing and short lead times.  In addition, we have worked extensively with the world's automotive Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs) and Tier I Suppliers, affiliations that require our TS16949 quality control measures and standards to be second to none.
