The core competencies of our Wires & Cables business unit at a glance:

We are a technology leader when it comes to developing and manufacturing high-performance wire and cable solutions for mobility and industry.

  • We are a trendsetter – our worldwide R&D departments regularly create innovative solutions to meet your individual needs, for example with HV, sensor and control cables for specific automotive or automation solutions.
  • We are close to our customers – we manufacture 360,000 kilometres of wires and cables per year at sites in Germany, Poland and China – and the trend is upwards.
  • We are high-performing – with thirty-one production lines covering a total of 28,000 square metres of floor space, we are a volume producer.
  • We are experienced – we have developed more than four hundred product families since 1929 and can currently offer our customers more than five thousand different items from stock.
  • We are problem-solvers – the more complex the challenge, the greater our commitment; we rely on advanced testing technologies and methods such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), 3D/2D microscopy and infrared spectrometry, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) or dynamic scanning calorimetry (DSC).
  • We provide German engineering for the global markets – and for the highest standards in terms of quality, production and operational processes, tested and certified to IATF 16949, DIN ISO 9001, 14001, 50001, EN, VDE, UL, CSA and CQC.
