A brief history of Wieland Rolled Products NA

In July 1892, Franklin W. Olin founded the Equitable Powder Company on 300 acres in East Alton, Illinois – the same site where 20 years later he would build the brass mill that remains the centerpiece of Wieland Rolled Products NA today.


The mill continues to churn out the copper alloys that are the foundation of our legacy – alloys developed by our scientists in our laboratories that have in turn fueled technological breakthroughs and product innovations for dozens of companies in a wide range of markets and industries.


Looking back over a century of accomplishments, it’s safe to say that few American companies have had a more far-reaching impact than Wieland Rolled Products NA.
