It’s Been Spring Time at Ajax for Over 8 Decades

It’s hard to believe, but Ajax Wire Specialty Company has been around for 85 years! Started in Manhattan in 1933 by Joseph Elowsky, and later combined with companies owned by his brother and brother-in-law, Aaron Elowsky and Ben Kantner, Ajax has continued to grow and remains a market leader in the manufacture and production of springs for industries including automotive, locksmithing, toy hardware, and electronics.

Now located in Hicksville, Long Island, we have a modern plant with automatic, semi-automatic, and manual equipment which enables us to produce springs in quantities that will be most cost effective for you. We can also provide labeling, bagging, and the printing and applying of bar codes.
