MWS Wire Industries was founded in 1968 in Canoga Park, California, under the name Magnet Wire Supply Company as an independent distributor of film insulated copper wire (magnet wire), engineered alloy and plated wire for manufacturers of aerospace components, computer memory devices, sensors, specialized motors, transformers, solenoids and related electromagnetic components. In 1973 MWS purchased a building in Chatsworth where it began manufacturing custom engineered wires to complement the distribution operation and in 1979 the company name was changed to MWS Wire Industries. As the business thrived a new facility was built in Westlake Village where MWS has operated the past 37 years. In that time the product line expanded with the revival of a vintage insulation formulation for electric guitar pickup wire, micro-diameter insulated wire used in ‘smart catheters’ for minimally invasive surgical procedures and a variety of engineered products used in industrial, automotive and aeronautic devices. In 2014 MWS was acquired by Elektrisola, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of fine gauge copper magnet wire. Last year the company purchased a 5.7 acre lot in the McInnes Ranch Business Park in Oxnard and has developed plans for a 60,000 square foot manufacturing and warehouse building projected to open in 2019. With 49 employees having an average tenure of 21 years, MWS Wire Industries looks forward to many more years of growth and success as a member of the business community in Oxnard.
