A Wire Harness Trailblazer

Seen by our industry peers as a trailblazer within wire harnessing, ALTEX has been instrumental in the adoption of the IPC/WHMA A-620 industry standard for cable and wire harness fabrication. Currently, organizations in 42 countries are IPC/WHMA A-620B certified. This universally recognized workmanship standard opens the doors for ease of communication between OEMs and manufacturers in regards to build specifications. It’s a true differentiator. Being such a large part of the adoption of this universal standard has been a shining moment for ALTEX.
