About us

SKET Magdeburg always was a good address in the wire rope and cable industries. Stranding machines have been manufactured in Magdeburg since the beginning of the 20th century. Whether it be as a supplier of individual machines, complete technological lines or complete works for the production of electric cable or steel wire rope, SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH is valued as a partner in the cable and wire rope industry in 35 countries on all five continents.

Our company operates from a 40,000 m² site where traditional and newly developed machine systems for cable and wire rope production are designed and manufactured in our production and assembly areas of over 10,000m². Not least amongst the reasons for the technological advances which SKET equipment is able to offer to cable and steel wire rope industry customers is the traditionally close cooperation which we enjoy with universities and research foundations.
