Segers Wire was founded 70 years ago by Frans Segers in Belgium. Initially, the company manufactured only a limited range of swing stoppers and frames used in the production of bras. However it rapidly established itself as a supplier of high quality steel wire products within the agricultural, construction and retail industries.
Following Frans’ wife’s appointment as co-director, the company’s product range was expanded to include high quality galvanized steel hangers and other related steel wire articles. Thanks to its commitment to excellent customer service, superior workmanship and exceptional quality, Segers Wire swiftly defined itself as an important player in the industry.
At the age of 22, Gilbert Segers followed in his father’s footsteps and became an integral part of the family business. Under his parents’ tutelage, Gilbert worked his way up through the company and in 1970, became the company’s director. Over the years since and thanks to his extensive experience, he has succeeded in enhancing the company’s profile and broadening its core client base.
In 2003, Segers Wire relocated to a larger site in the Czech Republic. The site of 2,000 m² has enabled the company to further broaden its product range and services.
In December 2009, Isabelle Segers, daughter of Gilbert, became account manager for the Benelux region and the third generation family member to join the company. Her distinctly modern approach and commitment to developing its global profile, ensures that the company will continue to meet its high standards of steel wire products and services.
