Bronx International began in 1940 in industrial England. Bronx began developing general equipment for the European steel industry, manufacturing straightening products for the production of tube, pipe, bar, and profiles. In 1973, Bronx began co-licensing with Taylor-Wilson. In an effort to access new markets, and to better serve their customers, the two companies merged in 1988 to form The Bronx/Taylor-Wilson Company.
The Bronx/Taylor-Wilson supplies in-line mill finishing equipment consisting of straightening machines and hydrostatic machines, used either to straighten, test or finish pipes, bars and tubes and notably seamless tubes.
In 2003, Bronx/Taylor-Wilson merged with Abbey International, a company that was established in 1901 and has been a top company in mill production, known globally for its Electrical Resistance Welding (ERW) tube and pipe mills, used to produce tubular welded products.
In 2010, Fives acquired Bronx International Inc., with its UK subsidiary Bronx/Taylor-Wilson Ltd. (BTW) to form Fives Bronx. The acquisition of Bronx strengthens Fives’ metal activities by expanding the Group’s offering to new high quality product lines and end-markets, and enhances the mechanical engineering expertise within the Group.
Fives Bronx has combined their strengths and expertise to continue to produce the best quality and highest value of service to all of their customers.
Fives Bronx promises to uphold their reputation of being a global leader in steel and non-ferrous mill and finishing equipment solutions.
