Company History

Since 1934, AWT has built a reputation for consistent quality production and customer satisfaction. Over the last 90 years customers have come to recognize American Wire Tie as a leader in the production of wire ties for construction, industry and agriculture. That reputation was made possible because all products are produced on efficient, high-speed machinery designed, engineered and built by AWT to insure uniform quality production of our rebar tie wire, wire tying tools, and other products.
