QED Wires Lines acquired Hi-Draw Process and Technology a division of Hi-Draw Machinery from Lämneå Bruk AB of Ljusfallshammar, Sweden in October, 2003. The agreement included Hi-Draw’s fluidbed, heat-treating, pickling, galvanizing, wiping, batch pickling and other process technologies. The success of this acquisition was due to the excellent fit of Hi-Draw’s process equipment with the company’s existing technology base. QED Wire’s strength in these fields has made it possible for us to provide uninterrupted spare parts and technical services to Hi-Draw customers.
