Paramount Die Company announces that they will not attend the 2020 Dusseldorf Wire Show due to complications associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Paramount Die Company, the world's largest supplier of carbide wire dies to the global wire drawing industry, has decided to not attend the 2020 Dusseldorf Wire show and has canceled its floor space for this event, due to the challenges related to the Covid-19 pandemic.  This decision was not made lightly, but was based on maintaining the health of our team, and doing what is right for Paramount's business.  Combined with the fact that travel from the US to Europe is still not allowed, all of these factors contributed to this decision. According to Messe US, this will not impact Paramount's booth location for the 2022 Dusseldorf show Paramount will be in the same location as past shows.

Paramount will focus on making the 2022 show the best possible and finding ways to communicate to potential customers all of the innovative products Paramount has developed and would have showcased during this year's Dusseldorf show.  For any comments or questions concerning Paramount's new innovative products, or to learn more about what would have been displayed at the 2020 Dusseldorf show, please write us at or visit us at

Paramount Die Company is reporting today that the COVID-19 related restrictions are still not materially impacting Paramount’s ability to supply.  Although the COVID-19 situation is changing on a daily basis, Paramount’s very large die inventory should allow uninterrupted supply for 2-6 months of demand.  This combined with creative methods for maintaining mission critical raw materials supply, have enabled the continued production and distribution of Paramount products.

Over the last week, Governors of several states have issued business operations limitations, allowing only those businesses deemed to be part of critical industries to continue operations.  Many of Paramount’s customers in the Critical Manufacturing and/or Healthcare sectors, have identified Paramount products to be critical to their operations.  Therefore, Paramount has determined that as such, these will not impact die production, but these may impact Paramount’s suppliers.  One such supplier (A coating supplier) recently announced a temporary facility closure, but this stoppage will have very limited impact on Paramount products.  

As this situation continues to change, Paramount will continue to assess/communicate developments and comply with all Federal, State and Local requirements. Although predicting every eventuality of this continuously changing global event is not possible, the company is taking all precautions to maintain supply of high quality wire drawing dies to the global market.  Paramount will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to communicate updates, as they become available.

If there are any additional information needs, please visit or contact Paramount directly at or (410)272-4600.

Interwire 2019

Paramount Die is the world’s largest supplier of carbide wire dies to the global wire drawing industry, and a market leader in the delivery of high quality dies and advanced drawing die technology. Long known as an industry innovator, Paramount has introduced several products which have become wire industry standards or best practices, and Paramount continues to innovate today. Higher drawing speeds, better wire quality and improved wire mill productivity have all been aided by Paramount’s cutting edge technologies.

One such innovation is the world renowned ParaLoc™ pressure system; the most widely used pressure die system in the world. ParaLoc™ pressure systems deliver higher drawing performance while also promoting sustainability by allowing customers to return and responsibly recycle their used inserts which are then reprocessed through Paramount’s automated reclamation system. A more recent innovation is Paramount’s new ParaLoc™-S; a pressure system designed to fit into smaller spaces. This allows customers to use a fully functioning pressure system in smaller dieboxes and will open the benefits of the ParaLoc™ pressure systems to older drawing lines.

Paramount has long been recognized as a premier supplier of dies, and is growing leadership in the development of shaped dies. Currently, work is being performed to develop new shaped die technologies which combine Paramount’s world-class geometry and quality with innovative shaped die designs. The same commitment and science that made Paramount an industry standard, is being applied to the design and manufacture of shaped dies. With the technical advancements and world class quality, Paramount can provide a die solution for any die need, and deliver higher value to all shaped wire producers.

Paramount is continually searching for new technologies that will enable wire drawers to further improve their processes, products and profitability. All of these factors allow Paramount to deliver the very highest quality wire dies to wire drawers across the globe at an extremely competitive price point. With an eye toward the future, Paramount continues to improve die quality and develop new technologies to maximize the value returned to our customers.
