Sussex Wire, Inc.

On May 31, 2012, Argosy Investment Partners IV, L.P. acquired a controlling ownership interest in Sussex Wire, Inc. (www.sussexwire.com). Headquartered in Easton, Pennsylvania, Sussex specializes in the design, manufacturing and distribution of highly-engineered, specialty metal parts and components. The Company utilizes cold-forming technology to form metal wire and specialty alloys at room temperatures into highly engineered and precision components faster and in a more cost-effective manner than traditional machining, stamping and casting methodologies.

The cold-forming industry as a whole has been, and still is, primarily focused on developing and manufacturing larger diameter nuts, bolts, fasteners and other metal components. Sussex has designed and engineered ways to efficiently form micro-miniature components with machines in a manner that improves product quality and differentiates the Company’s competitive position. The Company serves a variety of blue chip customers who operate in the medical, electronics, connectors, computers, automobiles, semiconductors, and glass-to-metal seal industries.
