History

Here is the answer ...

... with the entry in the commercial register in 1902, a tradition began at KROSCHU which has continued until today: the purple marker thread.
At that time, it was common in the cable industry for every manufacturer to mark their products with a colored thread.
This colorful wire allows us to trace today who produced which cable.

Kromberg & Schubert was assigned the purple color
