About Us


Building and Wire Buckles

Since 1977, MSS has been providing exceptional packaging products. We control each stage of the manufacturing process in-house, from design to shipping, in order to provide the best possible service to our customers.

Quality Statement

With an automotive background, we understand the importance of quality. The major concern for our type of products is raw material. To that end, we roll all steel coils in-house. Our rolling mill can control product to plus or minus .0005". Our slitting operators recheck gauge and tensile strengths before the product reaches the presses, where it is checked again. Milling and slitting give us a huge quality advantage over our competition. Further, the product is monitored continuously throughout the run. Finally, we have total traceability. Our lot numbers can be traced back to the original coil in case we ever need to purge field inventory.

Mission Statement

We do unto our customers as we would have our suppliers do unto us.


Environmental Statement

During the whole life cycle of our products, MSS aims to reduce waste and provide quality, while manufacturing safe and environmentally friendly steel strapping, banding seals, and wire buckles. During the production phase, we strive to improve production efficiency and consider environmental needs.
