Smartphones, vacuum cleaners, and electric railways – they all run on electricity. And where there’s electricity, insulators are needed, for example to fasten transmissionlines to the transmission tower. Militzer & Münch Ukraine was able to win a producer of polymeric insulators as a customer, and now transports insulator parts from Shanghai to Ukraine, and forwards the finished goods to Vietnam.
The contract was already signed in the beginning of June 2016 for a duration of three years. Militzer & Münch Ukraine’s customer designs and manufactures polymeric insulators for current lines, open switching stations and substations as well as AC overhead lines for railways.
