From immigrant mill worker, to inventor, entrepreneur, and Captain of Industry, the story of Oscar Sjogren is an embodiment of the American Dream
A manufacturing innovator since 1927, Sjogren Industries provides the highest quality machinery, tooling, and accessories for the wire and cable industry. The Sjogren belief that “simple ideas make better solutions” has been at the core of its innovative product designs since its inception.
Founded in 1927 by Oscar Sjogren, the company has long been an innovator in the design and manufacturing of wire straighteners, straightener rolls, and wire tooling equipment. Sjogren Industries recently celebrated its 90th Anniversary as a leading solutions provider for the industry.
As a Swedish immigrant working in a wire mill in Worcester, MA, Oscar Sjogren had an idea that would change the wire and cable industry forever. He designed a tool that would make him better at his job and he had the integrity to show that tool to his supervisor.
After selling the tool to the mill, Sjogren used it in his daily work. It was the first of series of innovations that would eventually lead to Sjogren forming his own company.
In 1986, Carl Sjogren stepped into his great-grandfather’s shoes and helped lead the company through an unprecedented period of growth, expanding Sjogren Industries with a new manufacturing facility in Worcester while extending product sales into European markets.
Today Sjogren Industries delivers high quality machinery, tooling and accessories to a worldwide customer base with distributors located in Europe, South Africa, Asia, and Mexico.
The company continues to introduce enhancements in wire straightening assemblies and components that deliver major efficiencies and increased productivity for its customers.
