Otselic's Gladding on 'Modern Marvels' Friday night

OTSELIC – Gladding Braided Products will be featured on the History Channel’s “Modern Marvels” program Friday night.

The textile and wire manufacturer has operated a 85,000 sq. foot factory under its current ownership since 2003 in the hamlet of South Otselic. The Gladding name and its facility were originally established in the area in 1816; it then grew into nationally-recognized fishing line producer.



Though the company no longer makes its trademark fishing line, Gladding is now one of the leading makers of braided industrial products using synthetic fibers and metal wire.

By weaving different kinds of materials together with their 1,000-plus machines inside the factory, Gladding creates a range of products including specialized rope, chords, protective coverings for electronics, parts used in fighter planes and even ignition wires for Patriot Missiles, to name a few.
