Ace Wire Spring & Form, an industry leader in the manufacturing of Compression Springs, Extension Springs, Torsion Springs, and Wire Forms, has been family owned and operated for over 83 years.
In 1939, Ace Wire Spring & Form started out in the industry with a small coiling machine making garter springs by hand. The owner, Joseph Vodvarka, was a machinist, working hands-on in the upstairs room of his house, which was converted into a small office / shop to produce the garter springs needed at the time.
Through the years, Ace Wire Spring & Form grew, and the belief of family was always a part of it. In 1976, Joseph Vodvarka’s daughter, Linda, and her husband Rich Froehlich, bought the company and continue to keep Ace Wire Spring & Form a family owned and operated business. The Froehlichs have a strong belief in family and carry over that belief into the Ace Wire Spring & Form culture when doing business. Customers benefit from this by receiving personalized customer service, engineering assistance, and a quality final product suited to meet their needs. In turn, Ace Wire Spring & Form thanks its customers for making it possible for the company to celebrate 83 years in business.
