ALTEX is excited to take part in the 25th Annual WHMA Wire Harness Conference, to be held on February 13-15, 2018 in Scottsdale, Arizona. For nearly 25 years, the conference has been one of the few opportunities for manufacturers, OEMs and suppliers to discover and share new insights within the wire harness industry.

WHMA Chairman and ALTEX President Rick Bromm will help kick off day 2 of the conference with a welcome presentation to attendees. The schedule will include discussions regarding best practices, industry trends, workforce development and updates to the A-620 workmanship standard.

“Today’s business environment is extremely fluid and the future of manufacturing and technology can seem like a fast-moving target,” said Bromm. “With the WHMA conference, we want to bring value by addressing relevant topics likely to have a high impact on our members’ businesses.”

The three-day event will also include peer-to-peer networking, a keynote presentation by ex-NFL player Burgess Owens, and activities such as go-karting and a golf outing.

“The WHMA mission is to provide the knowledge, tools and business connections necessary to push the wire harness industry forward and to allow our members to achieve greater success in a highly competitive market,” said Bromm.
