The various industry issues are dealt with in seven product-related business groups:
- Power cables for industry, wholesalers and installers
- Power cables for power supply companies
- Winding wires
- Carrier- and Access-Networks
- Enterprise Networks
- Power cable accessories
In almost all business groups of the division, future fields such as electromobility, renewable energies, smart grid, smart building and network expansion relevant for the energy and telecommunications sector are high on the agenda.
In addition to these key issues, the division is actively engaged in specific topics directly concerning the cable industry such as the construction products regulation, material issues and e-commerce with a special focus on monitoring the development of raw materials markets.
Moreover, product-related standardisation at national and international level is also on top of the agenda. To the division’s member companies, this work is of outstanding importance.
Through being a member of “Europacable”, the division ensures its participation and in important decisions and development processes at European level. Due to last years’ restructuring measures, the division’s competences for political lobbying in Brussels have been reinforced.
