About us


A spiral stairway serves countless uses but above all, it makes a dramatic statement. With its graceful, sweeping curves and ornamental metalwork—it is a thing of beauty forever.

Laying out a railing

Metal is hot, and Wells Spiral Stairs capitalizes on the “Fixer Upper” home décor trend with custom metal spiral stairways and much more—our quality railings, ornamental metalwork and gates are functional works of art.

At Wells Spiral Stairs, we custom manufacture to meet your requirements, working with deck builders, contractors, architects and home owners. Whether you want an economical spiral that utilizes a minimum of floor space or an elegant spiral that enhances the decor of a home, we can create a spiral especially for you. Charming, graceful, exciting ... a distinctive addition for any home.

Two generations of skilled craftsmen stand behind the superb quality of Wells Spiral Stairs. When it comes to architecturally beautiful metal work, we can make literally anything. We take deep pride in what we make for your home and truly want you to love and enjoy it. That is the foundation for our 70 years in business.

Bill Osborne started the business in 1949. After years of working with Osborne, Ralph and Dee Wells purchased the family business in 1989 and championed manufacturing excellence for decades until their passing. Wells’ daughter Lory Wells now proudly leads Wells Spiral Stairs into a bright future.

Wells Spiral Stairs ships coast to coast, mainly servicing the Milwaukee, Chicago, Madison and Rockford areas.
