In January 2014, MWS became a part of The Elektrisola Group – an international producer of fine and ultra-fine magnet wire. With a proud history of technical innovations to its credit, Elektrisola has manufacturing locations throughout the world, with 8 plants located in Europe (Germany, two in Italy, Switzerland), America (USA and Mexico) and Asia (Malaysia and China).
After having set the world’s record for the smallest fine wire, Dr. Gerd Schildbach founded Elektrisola in 1948 and opened the first factory in Germany in 1948. To accomplish his technology goals, he created his own custom manufacturing equipment and then implemented environmentally friendly catalytic enameling furnaces to keep pollution to a minimum at Elektrisola facilities.
Still family owned, the sons of founder Dr. Gerd Schildbach carry on a tradition of continually investing equipment, plants and innovative solutions. Committed to reducing environmental impact and supporting family values, Elektrisola is the perfect partner for MWS to succeed in assisting its customers quest to create breakthrough products with innovative wire solutions.
