50 Years of IWMA

1970 – 2020

 This year is a major milestone. It all started out very small just a handful of industry leaders, who had the vision to see that wire and cable was an under-represented sector of a growing industry. But today, we are a global organisation representing member companies worth billions of dollars that literally connect the modern world.
