The following information comes from "A Brief History of Page Fence" by Beryle G. Sweet, who retired in 1992 as chairman and CEO of Page Aluminized Steel Corp. (See http://users.telerama.com/~cass/Pagefence.html online or hard copy of text in file box.) Founded 1885 as Page Woven Wire Fence Co in Adrian Michigan. Incorporated in 1889 and changed name to Page Steel & Wire Co. In 1902, the company moved to Monessen Pennsylvania, to be closer to the steel billets of the Pittsburgh Steel Co. Purchased by American Chain Co. in 1920. In 1976 changed name to American Chain & Cable Co. Also in 1976, bought by Babcock & Wilcox Ltd. of the UK and renamed Acco Industries Inc. and later Acco Babcock. In 1982 the fencing division was spun off to form Page-Wilson Corp. In 1987, Page-Wilson was liquidated and the fencing division was sold separately, becoming Page Aluminized Steel Corp. and Page Two Inc. (of Bartonville, IL.) The Monessen factory was closed down in 1991, following a United Steel Workers strike. The Bartonsville factory continues to produce for both Page Aluminized Steel Corp. and Page Two Inc. Search this
