AWI, which is taking its 60-strong range of exotic alloys to the event in Dusseldorf from 15-19 April, is to supply a high strength nickel cobalt alloy.

The DFARS (Defence Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) compliant material will be used in an aerospace application that requires heat and corrosion resistance.

Exhibiting on stand E26 in Hall 11, the company will be represented by staff from the UK and agents from Germany, Italy, and the US.

Tom Mander, managing director at AWI, said: “Wire 2024 is the biggest global show in our sector, so it is great news that we are heading there after winning such a sizeable export order.

“It illustrates how UK manufacturers can remain competitive through investment in the latest technology and a commitment to work with our customers to deliver exceptional technical advice and access to significant amounts of stock at short notice.”

He continued: “The US order really does typify what AWI is all about. We received the enquiry about two months ago, went back quickly with a quote, agreed the deal, and processed the large quantity and despatched it in a matter of weeks.

“Wire 2024 gives us another opportunity to take our key selling points to a global audience and we’ve invested heavily in creating our biggest stand yet and a new timeline that charts some of the big moments in our 78-year history.”
