In 1984, Ralph Gifford decided to pursue the American Dream of starting his own company.
He believed he could create a better, customer focused, custom precision spring manufacturing business. Starting with one machine in his garage and a handful of customers, Gifford Spring Company was born.
Driven by Ralph’s integrity, leadership and performance excellence, his company very quickly outgrew the garage and moved to Gold Street in Garland, Texas, where the facility remains today!
Gifford Spring Company owes much of its success to its ability to manufacture high-quality custom precision springs and wire forms with short lead times using secondary operational step-saving machines that Ralph personally designed and built using pneumatic and electronic technology and components. During this early period of dynamic growth, Ralph introduced electronic gauging and sorting on automatic spring coiling machines to the Dallas manufacturing community.
