Senior foreman at Ormiston Wire retires after 47 years of service

Amalio Martinez, the senior manufacturing foreman at Ormiston Wire, has retired after an impressive 47 years of service.  However, Amalio will continue to work onsite part-time as a factory foreman, employing the wealth of experience he has clocked up since joining the company in 1966.

“Everyone at Ormiston Wire recognises that Amalio has always been very passionate about his work,” commented Mark Ormiston, Managing Director, Ormiston Wire.  “His attention to detail is exceptional and we will continue to benefit from his dedication and expertise.”  The policy of offering staff the opportunity to stay on beyond retirement if they wish to is nothing to do with government policy but is a well-established tradition that has been observed by Ormiston Wire for many years.  

Ormiston Wire has established this culture of continuity from the beginning; the specialist wire and braid manufacturing company was founded by James Ormiston in 1793 and six generations later the company is still led as an independent and family-run business by his descendant, Mark Ormiston.

About Us

Ormiston Wire Limited was founded in 1793 by James Ormiston, an enterprising young Scotsman. Six generations later, under the leadership of descendent Mark Ormiston, we are still an independent and family-run business. We began in the City of London, making spring-wire for corsets and wigs. This was in the days before rubber. Today we have manufacturing facilities in Isleworth, west London and Redditch in the Midlands. We pride ourselves in being able to manufacture almost any type of wire for almost any type of application. Our manufacturing processes can accommodate either ferrous or non-ferrous wire or strands, to any size or length. They include facilities for rolling, winding, rewinding, spooling, braiding, bunching, stranding and plastic coating, according to specification. The diversity of end uses for our products ranges from delicate surgical sutures, to special effects applications for the film industry, to polypropylene- covered and Kevlar-cored strands for low-voltage lighting, to the high-specification demands of the nuclear industry.
