11/10/2023 – WIRE 4/2023 October

The new issue is available now!

Autumn crosus – One of the first plants to flower in the autumn is the autumn crocus. It is beautiful to look at, but beware – the plant is poisonous. The spring, wire and cable industry is likewise viewing the autumn with caution.
Electricity prices, the risk of recession and a shortage of skilled labour are making it harder to plan for the forthcoming financial year. A fixed point such as ‘wire 2024’ in Düsseldorf can provide some orientation.
This edition of WIRE is densely packed. We have tried to publish the large number of contributions sent to us in this fourth print edition of the year. Thereafter, until the year-end, we will be keeping you up to date online – because the next edition of WIRE, 1/2024, will be our pre-fair issue for ‘wire 2024’. The world’s leading trade fair starts in just six months. Companies are already getting into their starting blocks for this highlight event.
Next year from 15 to 19 April ‘wire 2024’ will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany. Your magazine WIRE has its own booth C 03 in hall 9.
