    Show Organizer

    The Wire Association International (WAI), Inc., founded in 1930, is a worldwide technical society for wire and cable industry professionals that is governed by volunteers from around the world. Based in Madison, Connecticut, USA, WAI promotes, collects, and disseminates technical, manufacturing, and general business information to the ferrous, nonferrous, electrical, fiber optic, and fastener segments of the wire and cable industry.

    “This year we are going to have an Industry 4.0 Pavilion {at Interwire 2021} and lots of technical presentations that will showcase the latest technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Companies will demonstrate how Industry 4.0 technologies are applicable to wire and cable manufacturing and how the efficiency of equipment and processes can be significantly enhanced through their use."
    ~ Richard Baker, Vice President of Engineering, Prysmian Group North America
