In 1852, the Edwin B. Stimpson Company opened a 1,500 square foot factory in Lower Manhattan at what would be, 31 years later, the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Now, more than 160 years later, Stimpson produces the largest variety of standard and special eyelets of any single company in the world. Our 278,000 square foot facility in Pompano Beach, Florida is furnished with the most advanced, state-of-the-art, high-speed automated equipment available.
Over the last 25 years alone, Stimpson has shipped over 150 billion parts including Eyelets, Grommets, Washers, Hole Plugs, Snap Fasteners, Vents, Clamps, Ferrules and many additional metal products.
Placed end to end, those parts would circle the globe 50 times… No small feat considering the size of our products!
In July 2000, Edwin B. Stimpson Co., Inc. and Wicks Unlimited, Inc. joined forces in a combined effort to bring the world’s candle industry a wealth of high quality products and creative thinking.
Though the backgrounds of these two companies were significantly different, the companies themselves actually proved to compliment each other perfectly.
Wicks Unlimited was created simply to provide a better product, a better wick-clip assembly for the candle industry. Wicks Unlimited was able to do this to such an extent that in order to take its dreams to the next level, a partnership with a friend was necessary.
The goals were the same: To provide the industry with the best and most innovative products, supported by friendly, helpful and knowledgeable customer service. We pride ourselves in successfully assisting candle manufacturers, both large and small.
Our goal is to help the industry in making a safer, cleaner burning candle. And that we shall do.
