Established in 1967, WMP has grown with its customers. With that growth has come increased expertise, capabilities, and state-of-the-art equipment. A visit to the WMP facility yields a vast array of workstations, laser and water-jet cutters, perforation machinery, press brakes, welding essentials, and much more, all executed by trained and skilled personnel. Today’s companies need immediate solutions, and they look to WMP to answer those needs.
Woven Metal Products, Inc., got its beginning in 1968 as a manufacturer of wire mesh internals, including chlorine filter leaf pockets for Dow Chemical worldwide. As the business grew, so did WMP, expanding their main areas of expertise into that of center pipes with wire mesh, cover plates, catalyst support grids and expander rings. As customers’ needs were met quickly, with an adherence to extreme quality, WMP was called upon to do more and began supplying other specialty internals including sieve trays, chimney trays, mixing trays, distributing trays and pipe spargers, among other things.
Again, as customers’ designs changed, WMP adapted and perforated plate began to replace wire mesh in many processes. To accommodate changing needs and enhance production, WMP added a Perforated Products Division utilizing CNC equipment. Today, this added technology allows WMP to furnish hundreds of customers with custom perforated products.
In 1974, WMP began to produce perforated scallops for UOP and expended even further into specialty internals. WMP never looked back. Forty-five years later, one can expect a great wealth of knowledge and experience in refining and petrochemical internals as well as custom fabrication and perforation. This experience allows WMP to work with many process licensors, refiners, turnaround groups, engineering groups, consultants and more to customize needed solutions.
