45 years in the wire industry

Throughout his 45 years of involvement in the wire industry, Andrew Greer has seen the market change first hand and has responded to best service this market. With manufacturing becoming less viable in Australia and the need for stainless steel increasing Andrew established Stainless Steel Wire Mesh focusing on the supply of stainless steel wire & mesh.

The next generation- Sales Manager Tory Greer and Business Development Manager Amanda Greer have been around wire since they were born and commenced their working careers in Greer Industries during school holidays.

Tory & Amanda joined SSWM full time 10 and 8 years ago respectively. They have brought their own business interests and strengths to the family business with Tory focussing on Sales and Amanda on Business Development. Both have been instrumental with driving the growth of SSWM through SSWM’s vision to be your preferred supplier of stainless steel wire & mesh.

Project Manager James Greer is involved in developing and maintaining the supply chain and special projects.
