History

Strand Core was founded in 1973 as a division of Industrial Sales in Baltimore, MD. At that time, they manufactured strand up to 1/8" in diameter, primarily for the automotive industry. In 1983, Al Brown Jr., one of the original partners, retained 100% interest in the company and moved the company to Westminster, MD in 1987.

The company continued to grow in capacity and capabilities and ten years later, they moved to their current location in Milton, FL. In 2014, Strand Core was purchased by Central Wire Inc. (CWI), a market leader in specialty wire products and the largest re-drawer of stainless steel and nickel alloy wire in North America. Backed by our parent company, Strand Core now has the capability to manufacture strand from .009" and wire rope up to 5/8" in diameter. We are able to make strand and wire rope from bright carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steels, tinned bronze, copper, Inconel, Monel and other specialty metals.

Strand Core is one of the few companies on the government's Qualified Products List for aircraft control cables and manufactures cable assemblies for helicopter rescue systems. Additionally, our products go into the automotive, aircraft, medical, marine, and construction industries. Strand Core has developed additional capabilities including swaging of rope, electronically cut and welded cut lengths, and a variety of cable assemblies.
