La Triveneta Cavi and AICE
AICE, which La Triveneta Cavi has always been linked to, is an association of FEDERATION ANIE (National Federation of Electrotechnical and Electronic Companies), which in turn is part of Confindustria, and represents companies active in the energy cables and accessories, communication cables and electrical winding conductors sectors.
AICE member companies are 39 (for a total of 7,000 employees) and in 2019 they had a turnover of about 3,000 million Euros.
AICE guarantees its members a continuous update on the evolution of the European Directives in force and under development (LVD – Low Voltage Directive; EMC – Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive; CPR – Construction Products Regulation; etc.).
In particular, with reference to the CPR Regulation, AICE member companies have focused their investments on research and development of safe and reliable products to be used in applications where the health of people and the protection of things must be guaranteed in case of fire.
Last November 18th, our technicians Giorgio Massignan and Gianluca Migliorelli held a technical seminar from the meeting room of our headquarters in Brendola which was attended by 40 operators selected by our partner Sonepar Italia. The webinar covered the CPR regulation with its latest updates, and the news on low and medium voltage electric cables certified by La Triveneta Cavi. We also focused on the importance of the IMQ EFP voluntary brand which has always been considered a plus by our company. For this reason our R&D departments are every day in the forefront for the realization of cables that meet all legal requirements; in the last three years alone more than 100 types of CPR branded cables have been created. Waiting to resume the live seminars, always appreciated in the past years by our customers, La Triveneta Cavi is available to carry out technical training with its strategic partners.
