As a direct member, Service Wire will have access to ETIM developed tools and participate in many ETIM North America Product Expert Groups, including the wire and cable category.

“Having Service Wire join us is very important as they recognize the value that the ETIM model brings to the wire and cable product category and how they can apply it in their business,” commented Mary Shaw, Executive Director of ETIM North America. “Their visionary leadership will help accelerate product attribution in the wire and cable product category.”

Shaw further commented that it is important that manufacturers and distributors of all sizes, who value channel efficiency and recognize that the electrical ecosystem is undergoing a digital transformation, be part of the process.
