The Phifer Tradition
In 1952 J. Reese Phifer established Phifer Incorporated in Tuscaloosa, Ala. (USA) as a weaver of aluminum insect screening. Today, the company is the world’s largest producer of aluminum and fiberglass insect screening products. When Phifer began production in 1952, the two main goals were to excel in quality and in service. Phifer has kept this commitment to our customers for more than six decades and remains dedicated to continuing to provide quality products and quality service for years to come.
Throughout the years, the company’s weaving expertise has broadened and expanded to include a wide variety of innovative woven fabrics. Phifer’s interior sun control and exterior sun control fabrics offer heat reduction at window areas for both commercial and residential applications.
Stylish, high-performance designed fabrics for use in outdoor furniture, cushions and umbrellas, include an array of intricately woven fabrics in dobbies, wicker, stripes, jacquards and various blends that reflect the latest fashion trends.
With more than 60 years of wire drawing experience, Phifer has developed drawn wire products for traditional and specialized applications. Working to meet manufacturers’ custom needs worldwide, Phifer manufactures engineered products of metal and textile meshes for a wide variety of industrial applications.
