Drawing on experience.

At MKM, drawn wire is always made in our own foundry. It is produced using the Contirod® process which we ourselves developed and complies with the highest quality requirements. In our drawing plant, we can draw cast-rolled and alloy wire down to thicknesses of 0.05 mm. We offer wire, stranded wire and wire rope tinned as well as bare.

We supply standard wires as well as custom-made wires in every size, width and thickness, and also special wires for small industry niches. This allows our customers to conduct their business flexibly and in the way they wish, and to gain competitive advantages. We manufacture it in compliance with European and international standards. If required we can guarantee certain properties, including in compliance with specific customer requirements. MKM has a long tradition of producing copper wire; it has been a permanent part of our product range since 1909.
