22nd Cooperation Conference Automotive Wire Harness with exhibition

As one of 16 exhibitors, we were at the 22nd Cooperation Conference Automotive Wire Harness in Munich on 31 October. The well-attended event offers practical information on current trends as well as opportunities for new cooperation, and with more than 250 participants we made extensive use of the numerous opportunities for networking and professional exchange.

Autonomous driving changes the wire harness industry and creates new requirements for development and production. The experts from automotive manufacturers and the supply industry discussed current technical approaches for the implementation of automated driving and digitalization in the vehicle wiring system at this year’s event.

Speakers from BMW, Audi, Leoni Bordnetz-Systeme, KOSTAL Kontakt Systeme, DRÄXLMAIER, fleXstructures, Gebauer & Griller Kabelwerke and Schäfer Werkzeug- und Sondermaschinenbau took a close look at topics such as “Safety of power supply systems”, “Cables for high data volume” and “3D-mechanical power supply system design and digital protection”. Innovations for high-voltage systems and the realization of a stable energy supply were also presented.

ODW in Macedonia celebrates its 5th anniversary with the laying of the foundation stone for the second hall

The ODW-ELEKTRIK celebrated on the 6 July 2019 the first five years in Macedonia with over 500 guests and glorious sunshine.

If we think about it from the human life perspective, the first five years is the time in which a person learns most and lays the foundations for further development:
At this age we have growing pains, start to walk alone, fall down, get up again, get to know our environment – positive and important things.
We have to find our place in the family and society and we are trying out to find where our limits are.

ODW Macedonia has lived through all of this very intensively in recent years, learned a lot and validated the trust invested in it.

The successes of the past years, with over 400 employees, a full production hall, and further planned investments show this very clearly.

We wish our Macedonian colleagues a continuing healthy growth and much success in their work!

Battery Experts Forum 2019

From 10th to 12th April we participated as an exhibitor at Europe’s biggest conference on battery technology, the Battery Experts Forum. At the annual event, over 100 experts from the leading battery manufacturers and users provided information about developments in the battery industry worldwide, the latest trends and product developments.

The event was accompanied by a specialized exhibition with more than 80 exhibitors, including the most important companies in the entire battery supply chain. They presented new design, manufacturing and manufacturing solutions including battery systems, materials and components, testing and recycling processes. The focus was also on the development of cell production in Germany.

We had many very good meetings with experts from the industry, including high-ranking representatives from STIHL, BMZ, JUNGHEINRICH and AS-Motor. As a result, we have further expanded existing business relationships and established promising new contacts. Potential for ODW-ELEKTRIK exists among other things in the field of battery technology.

Automotive Meetings Querétaro 2019

We would like to thank all the visitors who met us at our booth at the Automotive Meetings Querétaro, the only BtoB event in the automotive supply chain in Mexico.

The two-day event, which was visited by representatives from 800 companies from 22 countries, including BMW, Daimler, General Motors, Mazda, Audi, Fiat, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz and Ford, was a successful event. ODW-ELEKTRIK took part for the second time, and due to the numerous very good and intensive discussions with existing and potentially new suppliers and customers, our participation was very successful. The resulting business relationships will help to further strengthen our location in Mexico and expand our worldwide network.
