WCJ Pilgrim Acquires Stanley Bostitch’s Wire Business

GLENDALE, WI—Oct. 18, 2010—WCJ Pilgrim Wire has purchased Stanley Bostitch’s wire business, encompassing box stitching, bookbinding stitching and thredlok wire. The companies had been working in conjunction 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 Pilgrim Wire products.

Paul Jacey, Bostitch Industrial Channel Manager, stated, “WCJ Pilgrim Wire 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.
