Spiral Binding first opened its doors in 1932 as the first mechanical binding company in the United States and quickly became a leader in the wire binding field with the development of new and improved wire and equipment. Spiral's ability to adapt to market needs was illustrated by the development of Spiralastic, a plastic coil wire that was designed to replace wire, which was in short supply during World War II. In addition to Double-O Wire Spiral developed Spiral-O Wire, which is designed to conform to the punching pattern of plastic binding machines.
In 1960, Spiral Binding went into the business of supplying products while continuing its role as a trade bindery. Then in 1990, the company changed their strategic plan by selling off their binderies and moving their focus to becoming a supplier to the trade, Fortune 500 companies, and the graphics arts and office supply industries.
Spiral ownership acquired James Burn North America in 2007. James Burn is known as a leader in wire products and conceptualized the Wire-O® double loop binding wire. James Burn North America was renamed James Burn USA, thus creating the largest family owned document finishing company in America. Now Spiral Binding serves major corporations, small to mid-sized businesses, printers, and facility management organizations, as well as the U.S. government and education markets. Spiral's customers experience a rich selection of quality binding, laminating and finishing equipment and supplies. Spiral Binding delivers superior products, service and price performance that ensure a zero-risk buying experience with every order.
