About Us

Mission Statement

"To design and manufacture high-quality precision springs, wire forms, and light stampings for all industries at the most competitive prices"

Springs are often an afterthought. An unnoticed, simple part of a larger, more complex system, left to be designed into whatever space is leftover. And we at Lewis Spring think that mentality is not only a shame, but that its flat out dangerous. When considered how many springs are out there part of your daily life (remember a certain vehicle accelerator problem? Stuck springs), we take it as a personal responsibility to deliver springs that will work. Before we even give pricing, our engineers evaluate every incoming design to make sure it will perform properly. 

Lewis Spring is all about Quality, Quality, Quality. Everything we do revolves around creating better parts and increasing labor efficiency. Even ownership and management reinvests a large portion of profits back into the company to enhance quality and productivity. We take pride in our craftsmanship, and take pride in delivering springs we know will work, all in the name of taking care of you, our customer, and your end users. 

Our Story

In September of 1945, WWII veteran Ellis Lewis and four other partners incorporated and started a mission to design and manufacture high-quality precision springs, wire forms, and light stampings for all industries at the most competitive prices. Production began in a four story North Avenue building on Chicago’s west side, but with facilities aging and growing demand causing material flow inefficiencies, Lewis Spring moved to our current location in Niles, Illinois in 1997. Our location is close to O’Hare international airport and three major highways and ground shipping hubs, which provides us the opportunity to better serve our customers from all over the world.

Moving forward, Lewis Spring & Mfg Company will always endeavor to deliver the best quality springs we can manufacture. We view reinvesting in our workforce, our machinery, and technology as a primary key to ongoing success, as well as taking care of the people on the other end of the phone. Wherever there is a spring design in need, Lewis Spring will be there to transform it into a working reality.
