The South African Wire Association update - Wire and Tube 2020

SAWA will not be participating in the International Wire and Tube Trade Fair in Dusseldorf this year. The decision was made in collaboration with the dtic in light of the ongoing pandemic.

The unpredictability of the Covid-19 infection rate in Europe means that SAWA will not be hosting a national pavilion in December. “While we know that often valuable business contacts are made and cultivated at the trade fair, we have legitimate concerns around any travel and health risks,” says Keith Campbell, director: South African Wire Association (SAWA).

SAWA is optimistic that there will be other opportunities for our members to participate in global market exhibitions and trade shows in the near future and SAWA will support members as these prospects arise.

We remain available to you at the end of a phone or email, for any enquiries, concerns, or information you need. We seek, as always, is to support our members as well as we can through this unprecedented period in all our lives.

SAWA remains available to assist any organisations who have enquiries regarding the high-quality wire products available from South African manufacturers.  Please contact SAWA on Tel: +27 (0) 11 615 0949; +27 (0) 11 626 1204 or e-mail us at or
