Heckethorn has a rich tradition of innovation and service in the wire formed products business that dates to its founding in 1939. Based out of Dyersburg, TN, the company is the leading supplier of wire formed products to the OE automotive industry. Heckethorn has an experienced non-union workforce of 200 employees with strong engineering, product design and rapid prototyping capabilities. Heckethorn is TS16949 (ISO 9001 based standard with additional automotive specific requirements) registered.
ERISCO Industries, having an equally rich operating tradition dating back to its beginning in 1938, is a leading supplier of wire formed products to industries including toys, lawn and garden, and consumer products. The company has manufacturing facilities in Erie, PA and Monterrey, Mexico. ERISCO is ISO 9001:2008 registered.
The combination of ERISCO and Heckethorn will enable the companies to combine their rich history and technical expertise related to wire formed products to serve multiple industries.
