Wire forming is a manufacturing process that employs manual and computerized equipment to bend metal wire into custom shapes and designs. Some of the products produced through this process include hooks, grids, assemblies, and electrical fixtures.

At QCMI, we’ve spent years building a strong network of overseas custom manufacturers to meet our customers’ wire forming needs.

Our Fully Personalized Process

We understand that no two wire forming projects are exactly alike, which is why we work from day one to identify your unique requirements and specifications. We draw on this information throughout the remainder of the outsourcing process, contacting only the manufacturers that are best suited to your project. You’ll notice this personalized attention from the moment you join your first design call, and it guides all of our interactions.

Once we’ve found the best candidates for your project, we request quotes and samples, vet them for quality, and pass on the ones that meet your requirements. Once you’ve given us the go-ahead, we’ll commission the project and keep staff on-site in the production facility to enforce the approved project standards, specifications, and schedule.
