In 2014, custom cable manufacturer Northwire joined The LEMO Group, an internationally respected cable connector leader. The partnership not only widened the availability of exceptional cable assemblies and design engineering services to the manufacturing companies’ customer base, it also provided them with valuable resources and information.

In the most recent issue, the publication covered fascinating topics such as solo yacht racing, robotic animals, and Northwire’s collaboration with Commercial Vehicle Group.
