SHWire: We are TISAX certified!
Data and IT security play a crucial role for our customers and for us. On the part of our customers, especially in the automotive industry, there is great concern that data will fall into the wrong hands, that data exchange is insecure and that we as a company are not protected against cyberattacks.
These problems could have an impact on the supply of our customers. The issue of secrecy is also crucial when it comes to the wire innovations of our customers.
The TISAX certification shows that we meet all required standards to be protected from the above-mentioned threats. For us, this was a necessary step towards higher security for us and our customers.

Public-law approval procedure mastered
SHWire is a leading manufacturer of high-quality and innovative winding wires for many applications such as automotive, regenerative energies, appliances, automation and enerhy generation and distribution. Winding wires are facing increasing demand and increasing property requirements.
Successful re-certification at SHWire
At the beginning of 2018, SHWire - Schwering & Hasse Elektrodraht GmbH - successfully mastered the transition audit to IATF 16949:2016 and has since been among the first in the magnet wire industry to pass this new automotive standard in an external audit with flying colors. In March 2021, the successful re-certification took place at SHWire of which we are very proud.
Highest process stability in winding wire production
Every centimeter of wire must be produced in an as uniform manner as possible, and that applies for more than 150,000 km every day! That equals exactly 15 billion centimeters.
Meeting this requirement is only possible if it is manageable to test important wire properties without gaps and to keep all essential process and machine parameters permanently within closely tolerated values.
Investment at SHWire
SHWire invests in Lügde, secures location and becomes a key supplier for electromobility
SHWire plans to build new production facilities in Lügde in the years 2021 to 2024. The medium-sized company is thus creating about 15% additional jobs as well as further production and logistics capacities. In the lower double-digit million range, it is one of the largest investments in the company's history.
The winding wire producer's masterpiece
SHWire has provided you, our customers, not only with qualitatively outstanding standard products but also with innovative special products. In some cases we develop wires with special properties especially for you.
Today’s flat wires for e-mobility
For years, enamelled round winding wires were virtually the top of the line. Fast automatic winding machines, low-cost wires, 50 international standards that cover just about everything you need. Flat wires, sometimes also called profile wires, were rather reserved for niches, e.g. wind power generators or - with aluminium as conductor - for use in transformer construction.
