Glendale, WI-based WCJ Pilgrim Wire, a leading manufacturer and distibutor of wire used in the box stitching and printing industries in the Americas, has purchased the Stanley Bostitch wire business encompassing box stitching, bookbinding stitching and thredlok wire.

WCJ Pilgrim Wire had been working in conjunction with Stanley Bostitch on different levels for years. That business relationship expanded when Stanley closed its Clinton, CT, wire mill. WCJ was qualified as its wire supplier and began supplying Stanley Bostitch customers with WCJ PilgrimWire products.

Paul Jacey, Bostitch industrial channel manager, says, “WCJ PilgrimWire has considerable product and industry knowledge in relation to all our customers already, as well as an extensive inventory to serve their needs with little or no lead times. That, plus the fact that WCJ has actually been supplying Stanley Bostitch with our wire for several years points to a seamless transition.”

All open orders are being transitioned to WCJ Pilgrim Wire.
