At Marlin Steel, we create custom metal baskets, carts, racks, and wire forms used in industrial operations across a variety of industries. There are no “one size fits all” baskets that will work across part-washing applications or other industrial processes. That's why we work with our partners to ensure each stainless steel wire form, basket, rack, cart, or assembly is made according to precise specifications based on specific operational needs.

Our Marlin Steel engineers conduct rigorous and thorough design and engineering quality checks to make sure each custom design meets the highest quality standards before the manufacturing process begins. With our highly automated production capabilities, we can produce custom wire baskets efficiently with short lead times.
