Materials (Plastics, Ceramics, etc.) / fil d\'acier tréfilé
French term or phrase: communication confidentielle
Hello,

"Tous les industriels qui parlent de tréfilage connaissent cette entreprise à la communication pourtant confidentielle"

This is a well-known fil d'acier tréfilé company.

I'm confused as how to translate "communication confidentielle" in this sentence.
Any ideas?

Thank you.

... and variations on that!
As I see it, it means "they keep themselves to themselves", they don't do much (if any!) publicity / advertising, or possibly 'communicatiosn' in a wider corporate sense (i.e. not actual advertising)

So 'communication confidentielle' is a nice contradiction in terms, and in the light of your whole document, you'll need to find a copywriting solution that is as powerful, if you can.
