At Jackson Spring Mfg. Co. Inc., we manufacture premium quality custom springs that are used in a variety of applications. Spring types we produce include compression, extension, and torsion springs made from SAE or ASTM grade steel, stainless steel, or copper. Manufacturing capabilities include the custom fabrication of everything from standard barrel springs to complex variable pitch designs for the automotive, medical, firearms, and other manufacturing industries.

Our dedication to quality is backed by our ISO 9001:2008 certification and a company history that dates back to 1962. We are proud members of the Chicago Association of Spring Manufacturers as well as the Spring Manufacturers Institute and strive to continually evaluate and improve our manufacturing processes. A full in-house grinding department allows us to produce custom springs and wire forms to precision tolerances while minimizing costs. For high volume applications, lights out manufacturing methods can be applied to expedite production and minimize labor costs.

Coating and surface treatment options include passivation, zinc plating, black oxide, and color coating. Vision inspection systems and load cells are used to verify conformance to all customer specifications. Lead times are average 3 to 4 weeks, with rush production and JIT delivery services available as needed. For additional information about our custom spring manufacturing capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.
