LEMO, a Swiss global leader in the design and manufacture of precision custom connectors, has acquired Northwire Inc., a US specialty cable manufacturer of wire and multi-conductor cable and retractiles for the medical, aerospace and defense, energy and industrial markets.

“This deal provides a complete cable-connector solution to our valued customers. I am convinced that by creating synergy between our two companies, we can grow and prosper side-by-side,” said Alexandre Pesci, CEO and president, LEMO Group. “The additional processes that we plan to implement will enable Northwire’s integration into the Group and promote our cooperation and services provided to our mutual customers.”

LEMO and NWI were founded on product innovation three generations ago. Today, both solution providers consistently deliver progressive inventions through rapid response manufacturing. Engineer and inventor, Léon Mouttet started LEMO in 1946, then patented the Push-Pull Self-Latching mechanism. Throughout the second generation of leadership, Marcello Pesci, who envisioned the alignment of his organization with a custom cable manufacturer, committed to the goal of creating best-in-class technology on a global scale. Currently, LEMO’s third generation of leadership, Alexandre Pesci is the architect of his predecessors’ vision; he is responsible for pioneering new technology, market diversification and integrating custom connectors and cable solutions on a global platform.
