More than half of demand on the copper market is for cast and rolled copper wire rod. That's because this material is crucial to the electrical and electronics industry. We have banked decades of experience and obtained worldwide references. All of these have made us a global leader with our high-capacity CONTIROD®* plants.
CONTIROD®* facilities offer you the option of producing either wire rod or flat sections. It's an added advantage that you can make copper-silver alloys, e.g. for trolley wires. That gives CONTIROD®* owners access to innovative sales markets. These plants come with a high degree of automation that ensures consistent production conditions. What's more, the modular design and high level of standardization mean you need much fewer spare and wear parts.
