The products show are very favorable price – value relation, a competitive quality and correspond to latest state of the technology.
In times, if a Cent more or less is making the decision, whether an customer end product will be successfully been sold in the market or not, ASSMANN WSW components group made the decision against the “over-specification” of products and offers application corresponding products on application related prices to fight against price increases due to too high-sophisticated product specification. The products offered are chosen to cover minimum 90% of the industrial applications. Markets, like the military-, the automotive motor-management – or some special medical markets, which require very high-sophisticated products with very special technical requirements are not the target markets for these products.
ASSMANN WSW components group offers in addition to the broad range on standard connectors the capability to manufacture customized connector solutions.
