Ufikile Khumalo, Scaw Metals Group Executive Chairman

South African steel and steel products manufacturer, Scaw Metals Group, will be taking part in wire 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany from 7 to 11 April 2014.

This is one of the biggest trade fairs in the global wire and cable industry and will showcase all the latest technologies and products available in the industry today.

More than 2 500 exhibitors will be on display and around 38 000 trade visitors and decision makers from around the world will be expected to attend the fair at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.

“This is one of the most important events on the calendars of all major manufacturers in the global wire and cable industry,” said George Katergarakis, Scaw Metals Group Executive Head of Sales and Marketing.

“This year’s expo promises to be the biggest and most impressive one in its long and illustrious history. We simply had to be a part of it. I believe that it is the perfect platform for us to showcase our wire and strand products to the international market.”

Scaw’s Wire Rod Products Division is a leading manufacturer and distributor of specialised steel ropes, wire, strand and chains used in both the local and international mining industry.

The last fair was held in 2012 and was the most successful exhibitions in its history with 1,300 exhibitors from 50 countries accommodating over 38 000 international visitors.

The range of offerings at wire 2014 will cover a wide spectrum, from wire manufacturing and finishing equipment, mesh welding machinery, process engineering tools and auxiliary components all the way through to input materials and speciality wires.

Innovative solutions from the cable, measurement, control and test engineering sectors round off the portfolio, and specialised sectors such as logistics, conveying systems and packaging will also be represented.

Scaw’s participation in wire 2014 is also in conjunction with the South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), giving the global exhibition a true South African presence.

“We have a great relationship with the DTI, they are showing great support to South African manufacturers. We believe that if manufacturers can work with the DTI the South African economy will be stimulated and ensure that the local steel industry will grow into a global influencer,” said Hannemann.

This is not the first time that Scaw has taken part in a trade fair. In February 2014, Scaw took part in the Mining Indaba in order to bolster its African footprint.

“The mining Indaba was the perfect platform for us to show our high-quality products to other players in both industries. We had great feedback from the visitors to our stand, this will be the first of many indabas we will be participating in,” said Hannemann.

Throughout the year, Scaw will also be participating in the Chile Mining Expo in Chile, the Zaminex Mining Show in Zambia, Wampex in Ghana, Africa Rail in Sandton and Electra Mining in Nasrec.
