About Us

Cambridge Water Screen Systems is a Regal Rexnord company, the largest manufacturer of metal converting and engineered woven mesh in the food processing, industrial, filtration, packaging, and architectural industry. Our journey began almost a century ago in Cambridge, Maryland, weaving wire cloth for locals and other customers, like Thomas Edison  and other important figures of the time.

In 1998, after six decades of substantial growth, we merged with Maryland Wire Belt and became Cambridge International. It wasn’t until 2016 that Rexnord acquired our company before its merge with Regal Beloit in 2021, to become what is known today as Regal Rexnord.

Regal Rexnord is now the leading solutions provider in the global motor and power transmission market, with more than five-billion-dollars in assets.

The merger granted us access to a complete portfolio of complementary products across their powertrain, including partner brands from Rexnord and Regal Beloit alike, such as : Regal’s Browning, Grove Gear, Hub City, Jaure, KopFlex, McGill, ModSort, Sealmaster, and System Plast brands like PMC’s Berg, Centa, Falk, Rexnord, Stearns brands, and more.

Every Cambridge Water Screen System is an engineered solution project that receives a Professional Engineer (PE) certification stamp. This certification shows that the system will withstand the forces of water flow, the dimensions of the water intake opening, and the screen clogging percentage.

We design our screens per ASD (Allowable Stress Design) specifications to verify that the screens and frames can withstand the loading from the water.
