Priority Wire, a wire and cable manufacturer joined ETIM North America (NA), joining more than 30 industry leaders including Atkore, Prysmian, Electri-Flex, Siemens, Schneider, WESCO, Sonepar, Graybar, Rexel Canada and IMARK Electrical.
“We’re excited to have Priority Wire join our group of industry leaders to share their product expertise as we refine the ETIM terminology,” said Mary Shaw, ETIM NA executive director, in the press release. “Their focus in the wire and cable product category will contribute significantly to our new Wire and Cable Product Expert Group as we seek to add products and their attributes to this important product area. Wire and cable represent 15% to 20% of industry sales and Priority recognizes the need for the industry to collaborate and better define the product attributes for these products to help take them out of the ‘commodity’ description.”
As a direct member, Priority Wire can participate in multiple ETIM NA Product Expert (PE) Groups such as conduit, and a future lighting products area. Other companies and industry associations that have joined ETIM NA over the past two years include NEMRA and eCommerce content providers Distributor Data Solutions (DDS), IDEA and Trimble.
Over the next six months, ETIM NA committees will review products including wire, conduit, conduit fittings, transformers, enclosures, fuses, cable tray and wiring devices. For more information about ETIM, or how to become a member, please visit: https://www.etim-na.org.
