Solar Spring & Wire Form Company was started on May 10, 1979, by David Diaz and Harry Bestow, in David's garage with one four-slide machine and David's son Oscar, our current president, as the first official employee.

On November 6, 1980 the company incorporated in the State of Illinois as a C-Corporation.


Harry took the sales manager and salesman roles based on his experience as sales manager with All Rite Spring Company.  David took the production manager and set-up man roles based on his experience as production foreman at All Rite Spring.  Harry has recently retired.

In 1981, the company landed General Motors Truck & Bus Division as a customer, giving Solar Spring & Wire Form Company a large boost to sales.  GM has remained a customer, and is now one if its largest.

With GM sales leading the sales growth for Solar Spring & Wire Form Company, they were forced to move to a larger plant to accommodate the added machines needed for the required added production.  On January 2, 2002 the firm moved to an 80,000 square foot plant at 345 Criss Circle in Elk Grove Village, where they are today.

Minority certification has proven to be of great value to the company's fortunes.  This was a major factor in recruiting many customers; such as Honda, AM General, John Deere, and the Army, in addition to General Motors.
