H. Cross Company History
H Cross Company is a specialty metal fabricator tailoring all projects
to our customer's specifications for over 70 years.
H Cross Company was established in 1939 as a family owned
business. Started by Henry and Charles McClary in the family
home to fill the needs of companies requiring refractory metal
ribbon strip and wire. Over the following decades we expanded
to four buildings and the fabrication of other materials and
alloys such as precious metals, nickel and super alloys, stainless
steels and many others.
These materials are fabricated for uses such as
Spectrographic filaments, Medical devices, Electronic
equipment, Defense systems, Halogen, Short Arc, Metal Halide Lighting
and many others. We were the first company capable of rolling tungsten
and molybdenum ribbon.
Throughout the years, using superior research and development by
our engineering staff, we are consistently improving upon our processes
and remain the state of the art in the field. We are often accomplishing
what was thought of as impossible.
