About Us…

United Wire can trace its roots back to 1825 and has been on its present site in Edinburgh since the 1930s. Our factory (the ‘Wire Works’) remains an iconic landmark within our local landscape.

Based on a rich history of wire production and a foundation of weaving for the paper making industry, our business is now focussed on providing woven wire mesh in all forms, to service all aspects of industrial and commercial processes and applications.

Innovation, design and development of wire mesh for use within the oil and gas industry, specifically for sand-screen and shaker-screens, led us to become part of a leading major multi-national oil services organisation, providing opportunity, investment and financial support, yet allowing us to retain our independence and identity within a challenging industrial environment.

Our global supply chain ensures we can meet all the business needs of a demanding 21st Century market, and of increasing importance to many, we have the in-house resource to provide our customers with goods of UK origin, woven in Edinburgh.

For same day shipment from our extensive stock range, or for a customised product offering dealing with unique business requirements, we provide the most comprehensive service. Our support network of courier and freight transport providers ensures timely delivery throughout the UK, and we can deliver to mainland Europe in as little as 2 working days.
