Marlin Steel Wire Products announces receipt of an order for 1,600,000 precision wire forms which the US Military needs for the war effort in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Marlin Wire started the new year with a bang,” said the President of Marlin Steel Wire Products, LLC, Drew Greenblatt. This is Marlin Wire’s highest- quantity order in 2010 and “confirms our confidence for 2010. We hired three wonderfully talented people last week in anticipation of another strong year, surpassing even 2009, our best year ever.”
The work will be performed in Baltimore, MD by Marlin Wire’s phalanx of wire-forming robots. Marlin Wire will be starting a third shift to meet the tight deadlines for these complex wire forms. In fact, Marlin will be running the factory around the clock for the next year because of this contract. The initial delivery will be in one week, and Marlin Wire expects to finish the work by December 2010.
“Marlin Steel purchased a brand new wire forming robot in the summer of 2009 and it has been buried with some long term telecommunication wire form orders. Now the robotic wire forming machines will be sweating harder making military parts,” said Simon Matthews, Marlin Wire’s plant manager. Matthews declared “the wire forming robot we purchased is the fastest in the world bending wire 495 feet per minute and the bending pin can do ten full revolutions in less than a second (3600 degrees). This blistering speed enables us to keep up with wire forms and s-hooks like no other wire factory in the world.”
In the last 90 days, Marlin has shipped similar components, as well as wire baskets and racks, for many branches of the US military, specifically the Special Forces, the Army, and the Navy. “Requiring quick delivery and robust quality is standard operating procedure for the military, and we are transforming our company to follow their needs: quick and quality-minded. We want to be a valued partner of the US Military. We are delighted to support their efforts,” says Greenblatt.
“We have even provided medical wire baskets to the Veterans Administration to help heal our warrior heroes” continues Greenblatt.
