Radcliff Wire, Inc. is celebrating over 55 years as a family business in Bristol, Connecticut.
Working as a purchasing manager for a local spring manufacturer, Donald Radcliff ran into the problem of finding a vendor to supply precision-shaped wire. So, he established a specialty wire company in 1959 and shortly thereafter moved the business to Bristol. Over the years, the company has grown and diversified to meet needs of a changing economy including the aerospace, electronics, and telecommunications industries.
Donald Radcliff retired from the company in 1982, remaining Chairman of the Board with his daughter Jeanne taking charge of the business.
Serving as president until her semi-retirement in 2001, Jeanne Radcliff has remained active in the company as its CEO.
Her brother Charlie moved into the leadership role of the company in 2001 and continues “the family tradition of commitment to their customers, employees and community”.
