ACS Industries, Inc. – It’s what’s inside that counts™
At ACS Industries, we are the world leaders in engineered knitted wire mesh solutions. Founded in Providence, Rhode Island, USA in 1939, American Copper Sponge, Inc. manufactured just that: knitted copper sponges. Our first knitted wire mesh air and grease filters were products of excess knitting capacity when first 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. in 1960. Since the 1970s, we expanded our production into automotive exhaust products, with our first knitted wire mesh support systems introduced in 1975. We started our global expansion with our first facility in Monterrey, Mexico opening in 1987.
At ACS, we are the world’s largest vertically integrated knitted wire mesh manufacturer. 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.
