Essex Group Inc. announces plans to expand its round magnet wire/winding wire manufacturing capability to Eastern Europe. This new greenfield plant will be located in Serbia and provide global OEM’s with the same high quality magnet wire/winding wire that they purchase today from the Essex facilities in 7 countries across 3 continents.

With the addition of this new facility in Serbia, Essex makes it ever easier for global manufacturers to seamlessly source magnet wire for all of their assembly facilities. This location compliments the Essex Europe plants in Germany and Italy plus brings local service to nearby manufacturers of electric motors and coils for the automotive and commercial & residential markets.

“At Essex, we are making it easier for global customers to grow and transfer their Essex magnet wire products wherever they are needed. With this new plant in Serbia, we demonstrate our commitment to servicing our customers in Europe and beyond.” — Brian Kim, CEO, Superior Essex.
