Our History

Six decades, three generations and many millions of aluminum forms later…

Western Forms started in 1955 in Kansas City, Missouri, as a small entrepreneurial effort by E. B. Ward. In 1962, E.B. Ward invented the first fabricated aluminum form, in effect, creating the aluminum formwork industry. His vision, values and dreams have been carried forward by his sons, grandsons, and dedicated employees all these years since.

Today, Western Forms has grown into a much larger company with a global reach that serves customers by providing the best handset and crane-set aluminum forming systems and services available.

In the future, we anticipate many new types of form applications as the demand for concrete construction and more efficient building methods continues to grow.
