About

Essex Furukawa Magnet Wire Europe GmbH was established in 2017 as a joint venture between Essex Germany and Furukawa Electric, providing High Voltage Winding Wire (HVWW®) to the European market, for the automotive industry in Europe.

The Joint Venture

Essex Furukawa is built upon the presence of Essex leadership in the European automotive market, global supply chain, and European sales force. The local manufacturing capability combined with Furukawa’s technical expertise of magnet wire and high voltage winding wire, including extruded winding wire.

Leading Innovation

The High Voltage Winding Wire (HVWW®) earned first place in the 2017 Magna Innovation Award as a joint entry with Solvay’s KetaSpire PEEK polymer. The new technology enables more durable, efficient and downsized large electric traction motors running at higher voltages and currents and speed the time-to-market of major advances in automotive engineering.

“The electric vehicle market is changing rapidly. Tolerances continue to get tighter where even the smallest imperfections negatively impact performance. Essex is uniquely positioned to meet these demands, now and in the future.”
