Appliance Industry Leader Turns to Sussex Wire For A Domestic Source

Easton, PA (January 13, 2014) - After years of depending exclusively on a Pacific Rim supplier for valve stem components, the industry leader in toilet flushing mechanisms has returned to a local solution. Sussex Wire, a global design and manufacturing company of precision micro metal components headquartered in Easton, Pennsylvania, helped them re-establish a domestic source of components used across its range of flush valve platforms.

Through investments in state-of-the-art design, tool-making and proprietary automated roll forming machine technology, Sussex Wire is now producing millions of stainless steel micro valve stems a year with dimensions as small as 1/20th of an inch while controlling tolerances of greater than 0.001” for twenty (20) dimensions to better than a 1.33 Cpk. “The long-term design and quality assurance partnership developed between the team at Sussex Wire and our customer helped make this a major success for both companies”, commented Tim Kardish, Sussex Wire’s President.

Sussex Wire utilizes cold-forming and roll-forming technologies to shape metal wire and specialty alloys at room temperatures into highly engineered, precision, micro-miniature components faster and in a more cost-effective manner than traditional machining, stamping, metal injection molding and casting methods can. The Company serves global blue chip customers who operate in the medical, electronics, connectors, computer, automobile, transportation, appliance, semiconductors, and glass to metal seal industries. Dozens of examples of custom parts are illustrated on the Company's website,
