The World of Magnet Wires

Tradition and change are hallmarks of the company SHWire, Schwering & Hasse Elektrodraht GmbH. Founded in 1858 as a cigar manufacturer, the company took up parallel production of enameled copper wire at the end of the Second World War. For the 5th generation owner-managed family enterprise, change means letting go of traditional business segments such as the manufacturing of tobacco goods, when there are no more opportunities. Through the parallel buildup of two lines of business, however, the company was able to successfully shape this transformation process.

For this reason, manufacturing continues to be done exclusively at the production plant in Lügde, which has been repeatedly fortified throughout the years through acquisitions and integration of competitors, along with investments in the tens of millions. This also involves the topic of digitalization, which is being promoted in alignment with the reference structure of “Industry 4.0”.

The highlights

  • over 50,000 tons of production capacity
  • 50,000,000 produced kilometers per year
  • largest and most modern single location in Europe
  • 100% data traceability
  • centralized production, monitoring and control system

Corona information, 25.03.2020

Dear business partners,

We are all together confronted with an unprecedented situation. The corona pandemic (SARS-CoV-2) affects us all - personally and professionally. In the meantime, however, the appeal - to assume social responsibility - is becoming increasingly important. Thinking and acting in terms of gaining commercial advantage must not be our maxim to act on at the moment. Each of us is affected, which is why the burdens should not be borne unilaterally, but should remain balanced.

As SynFlex Group, we therefore consider it our duty to comply with all contractual agreements as they existed before the crisis triggered by the corona pandemic began. If we all share this basic idea, we are able to maintain our existing business structures to a large extent and, once the crisis is over, we can start from this basis again with optimism and energy.

We would like to assure you that with our prevention and contingency management, updated daily depending on the situation, we have initiated all necessary measures for the protection of our employees and all stakeholders. To this day, we have thus succeeded in making all of our company's services available to our business partners in the usual manner. We will of course inform you immediately of any impairment of our supply chain.

We wish you and your employees every success in coping with the upcoming tasks and, above all, please stay healthy!

In this spirit, we count on you,

Your SynFlex Group Team
