Ali Shehab, CEO, Cimteq, will be joining a prestigious line-up of speakers within the cable industry’s most influential companies at Interwire 2019, May 13-16 2019, at The Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
Amongst the speakers is, Andy Talbot, Vice-President, Mid-South Wire, Dave Hawker, Vice President, Nexans, Richard Wagner, Vice President, Insteel Wire Products and Tom Heberling, Senior Vice President, Southwire.
The conference provides a platform for delegates to hear and see what manufacturers are talking and doing about the next generation of wire and cable making. Ali Shehab will also be hosting a Technical Program on The Smart Factory during the 5 day conference.
Ali Shehab says ” Using Smart assets in your factory does not make the factory a Smart Factory, in the same way a Smart phone does not make the person Smart. A Smart Factory must exhibit the characteristics of communication, adaptability, continuous improvement and collaboration. Industry 4.0 is not the future, it is here and yielding benefits by those that adopt its concept”.
Interwire includes WAI’s 89th Annual Convention; its 3rd Global Continuous Casting Forum; a full exposition in Hall A; and a collocation of the International Fastener Manufacturing Exposition (IFME).

Happy Christmas from all of us at Cimteq. We thank all our customers and partners for their continued support.
During the Christmas break, Cimteq will be closing the office from 1pm on 24th December 2018 and re-opening on Tuesday 2nd January 2019 at 9am.
Cimteq hosted a Christmas party with a difference this year on Saturday 8th December at Whitewater Active in Llangollen, Wales.
Katy Harrison, Marketing Manager at Cimteq says ” We fancied hosting a party with a difference and decided to go for something a little more adventurous. The team were offered a choice of 2 activities, including white water rafting on the river Dee in Llangollen or archery. The team that opted for white water rafting were certainly offered an adventure not to be forgotten. As it was December, the water was extremely white due to heavy rain the previous few days. The instructors were very thorough in terms of their safety briefing which had to be conducted in a field prior to hitting the water due to the ferocity of the river. Once we hit the water, it was an adrenaline fuelled ride from start to finish. There was one scary moment when we lost the CEO over board but thankfully he was rescued before we lost him down river. It was an excellent experience and we want to thank the team at Whitewater Active in Llangollen for looking after us so well. I thoroughly recommend this for a corporate team building exercise”.
The events were followed by a three course Christmas lunch at The Cornmill in Llangollen where the team enjoyed the rest of the day in a more relaxed environment, overlooking the River Dee where we had previously flown past in the morning.
