It is with great sadness that Wirefab Inc of Worcester MA announces the passing of our founder and CEO, Asbed “Ozzie” Zakarian. Mr. Z, as his employees affectionately knew him, established Wirefab in 1955. With a sound conservative fiscal approach to business and unique foresight ability, Ozzie nurtured the growth of Wirefab from its meager beginning to an industry leader of wire products and manufacturing services. He led by example. There was always a sense of urgency, a demand for excellence and a healthy discontent with the way things were. His booming voice, his hearty laughter and his charming personality will be missed by all who knew him.

Thanks to Mr. Z, Wirefab is now an ESOP company rich in manufacturing technology and financially sound to confront the new challenges of the times. With recent sizable investments Wirefab has state of the art capabilities in wire forming, and automated resistance welding as well as robotic tig and mig welding. Wirefab’s produces wire products for numerous industries including bakeries, OEMs, commercial restaurants and retail businesses as well as the science, military, medical, electronics and computer industries.
