Customization & New Product Development
Candlewick is Atkins & Pearce’s oldest product. Atkins & Pearce wicks illuminated non-electric homes in post-Civil War America and today appear in candles worldwide. We have thrived for almost two centuries by developing innovative wicks to serve an ever-changing candle market.
We welcome the opportunity to modify wicks or develop wick solutions that fit your individual candle needs. We have collaborated often with customers to design exclusive and patentable wick solutions for candle systems.
