ACS Industries, Inc. – It’s what’s inside that counts™
At ACS Industries, Inc., we are the world leader in engineered knitted wire mesh solutions. Founded in Providence, Rhode Island, United States, in 1939, American Copper Sponge, Inc. manufactured just that: knitted copper sponges. Our first knitted wire mesh air and grease filters were put to market in 1946. After experiencing heavy growth in the knitted wire mesh business unit and moving the corporate headquarters to Woonsocket, RI in 1959, management changed the company’s name to ACS Industries, Inc. Since the 1970s, we expanded our production to automotive as well as invented and increased our capabilities in variable expanded metal, with our first knitted wire mesh support systems introduced in 1975. We have also opened facilities in Mexico, China and Romania, and, in 2013, expanded our production to include a facility for cleaning products.
At ACS, we are the world’s largest vertically integrated knitted wire mesh manufacturer and the sole global producer of knitted and woven wire mesh that produces its own wire. We are a key global supplier of the following industries: pyrotechnic airbag inflator filters, exhaust systems components to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 suppliers as well as cleaning products to the foodservice and janitorial industries.
As a leader in knitted wire mesh technologies, our engineering competency and industry experience situates us to tackle our customers’ most difficult and important projects. Furthermore, we provide solutions that are competitively priced and have short term lead times. We have extensive experience with automotive OEMs and Tier I Suppliers; affiliations requiring quality control measures and standards at a level second to none.
Our company is a multinational organization, serving customers on every continent. Rhode Island, United States is home to both our corporate headquarters as well as industry-leading Research & Development center. Our production facilities are based in Shanghai, China; Monterrey, Mexico; Turda, Romania; and South Carolina, United States, and our regional sales offices are located throughout the world.
