For the last 20 years Southwestern Wire Inc, Norman, OK has been producing domestic tension bars for the chain link fence industry.  Manufacturing processes have changed a bit over that 20 year period but the quality of the end product has continued to improve.  Production of the all of the galvanized tension bars, truss rods, gate rods and drop rods comes from raw material produced domestically at our sister mill Mid American Steel & Wire in Madill, OK.  With Southwestern Wire controlling the process from beginning to end we can ensure that the product you receive has undergone the highest quality standards you have come to expect from all Southwestern Wire products.

Many wholesalers are searching for quality products to add to their line up and they are looking for products that will diminish the aggravation of dealing with contractor complaints.  Contractors and installers are also searching for products that will make their install times quicker and will also reduce any call backs from their client base.  With tension bars and truss rods from Southwestern Wire, you will find that straight clean bars and rods are the standard and are what you have come to expect.
