Spiral first opened its doors in 1932 as the first mechanical binding company in the United States and quickly became a leader in the wire binding field with the development of new and improved wire and equipment. Spiral's ability to adapt to market needs was illustrated by the development of Spiralastic, a plastic coil wire that was designed to replace wire, which was in short supply during World War II. In addition to Double-O® Wire Spiral developed Spiral-O Wire, which is designed to conform to the punching pattern of plastic binding machines.
In 1960, Spiral went into the business of supplying products while continuing
its role as a trade bindery. Then in 1990, the company changed their strategic
plan by selling off their binderies and moving their focus to becoming a supplier
to the trade, Fortune 500 companies, and the graphics arts and office supply industries.
Spiral ownership acquired James Burn North America in 2007. James Burn is known as a leader in wire products and conceptualized the Wire-O® double loop binding wire. James Burn North America was renamed James Burn USA, thus creating the largest family owned document finishing company in America.
