History

We began weaving wire cloth more than 100 years ago in Cambridge Maryland. As the Cambridge Wire Cloth company, one of our first customers was Thomas Edison. By the 1920’s, we had designed and patented a metal belt for high temperature ovens still in production today. After six decades of continuous growth, we merged with nearby Maryland Wire Belts in 1998, becoming Cambridge International, the world’s largest manufacturer of metal conveyor belts. Today – after being acquired by Rexnord in 2016 - Cambridge-Rexnord is the world’s only manufacturer of custom metal and plastic conveyor belting for food processing and industrial applications.
