Emil Burda founded Master Spring & Wire Form Co. in 1945. As a foreman and setup man at a large spring manufacturing plant, he was unhappy with the unresponsiveness to customer requests. He saw an opportunity. With help from his father who worked at a foundry, Emil made a coiling machine and launched his company.
Emil liked to say, “We can make the possible wire forms quickly. The impossible ones might take a little longer.” He took great pride in Master Spring’s ability to solve tough spring and wire form problems that larger companies chose not to quote.
As Master Spring grew its reputation for attentive service and problem solving, the company became a natural choice for the local pinball and gaming industry. The turn-around time from design to assembly line was a few weeks. Sometimes, workers discovered playfield design problems as the game moved down the assembly line. Master Spring evaluated the problem at the customer’s site, returned to the factory to make the revised parts and delivered them the same day. This kind of problem-solving and fast response became a way of doing business. Decades of service combined with today’s best technology yields the recipe for a growing, successful company.
By purchasing one or two new machines each year, Master Spring continuously invests in expanding its wire form and spring manufacturing capabilities. The latest equipment allows us to make virtually any spring or wire form out of round wire without the need for secondary operations. It also allows us to shorten machine set-up times, increase production rate times and monitor runs in-line. In addition to capital improvements, we implement process improvements by using lean manufacturing principles. We are financially solid and growing, and we continue to invest to compete and serve our customers for the long term.
