A.T. Wall Celebrates Its 125th Anniversary

WARWICK, RI- A.T. Wall Co., a supplier of superior precision tubing and fabricated metal components, is celebrating its 125th anniversary. From its founding in 1886 as a jewelry finding manufacturer, A.T. Wall has grown and expanded to become a global supplier of seamless cold drawn specialty tubing, high-quality waveguide tubing, and metal stampings that include drawn and coined products to the medical, aerospace, telecommunications, electronics and automotive industries.

A.T. Wall offers global shipping and welcomes both large and small orders. In response to customer demand, the company recently opened a European warehouse facility, reducing transportation costs and delivery times. The warehouse is staffed by international freight and transportation logistics specialists Triple Logistics and Oceanair, and stocks a variety of waveguide and other products. “As the 5th generation of my family to work at A.T. Wall, I am proud of the company’s long history in the metal fabrication industry and committed to diversifying to take advantage of our strengths, while avoiding the pitfalls of over-reliance on one technology,” said Peter C. Frost, president and CEO of ATW Companies, the parent company of A. T. Wall Co., Judson A. Smith Co. (Boyertown, PA), Parmatech Corp. (Petaluma, CA) and Proform (East Providence, RI).

“We are especially focused on bringing additional manufacturing jobs and opportunities to Rhode Island, our long-established headquarters and base of operations,” Frost adds.

ATW recently opened Parmatech-Proform Corp.’s 25,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in East Providence, RI, which focuses on metal injection molding (MIM) and secondary MIM operations for the medical, telecommunications, firearms, hand tools, semiconductor and electronic packaging markets.
