Kewanna Metal Specialties

Who is Kewanna Metal Specialties, Inc.?

KMS, Inc. is a privately held corporation, founded in 1960. The business came under the control of the Finke family in 1962 when Allen J. Finke became President and Treasurer; in more recent years, sons James Finke (Vice President of Manufacturing) and Jeffrey Finke (Vice President of Sales) have become the managing executives of the business. A team of knowledgeable and qualified managers compliment and support the Finke's leadership, representing over 250 years of manufacturing experience.

What is Kewanna Metal Specialties?

KMS is a non-union manufacturer of wire forms, welded assemblies, and powder coatings. KMS specializes in short to medium volume items, though capable of automotive volumes as well. While Kewanna doesn't produce springs, it utilizes a broad range of materials to produce just about every other configuration of wire product. From handle wires, to shelving, hooks and hangar wires, to basketball backboard struts, battery hold downs, to room-sized fan guards. 

Kewanna has a long history of working with low to medium carbon wire, galvanized steel wire, stainless steel wire, and brass wire. Round, square, oval, octagon, and hexagon shapes are all available. 

While we prefer to stay within a range of .062" through 1.000" wire diameters, we are willing to review any application. If we determine that this is something outside of our realm, Kewanna can frequently make recommendations as to where you may be able to source that type of work.
