New Corporate Identity to Launch July 1, 2008
Blue gearboxes have become the industry standard in servo gear technology. As of July 2008, the blue gearboxes will remain but alpha gear drives, Inc. will change its name to WITTENSTEIN, Inc. to be consistent with the other business units of our company.
Please take the necessary steps to change account information from alpha gear drives, Inc. to WITTENSTEIN, Inc.
alpha gear drives, Inc. was founded in North America in 1992. By 1999, the strong servo gear demand in various industries created additional subsidiaries of alpha, including WITTENSTEIN aerospace & simulation, Inc. and WITTENSTEIN arena, Inc. To synergize efforts, WITTENSTEIN subsidiaries converged in 2005 with the building of WITTENSTEIN's Bartlett, IL headquarters. This symbolized our commitment to our partners with all sales, development and production competencies under one roof.
The ISO accredited WITTENSTEIN facilities in Bartlett, IL has become the base of operations for all sales and development efforts in North America.
WITTENSTEIN offers full training on its portfolio of alpha gearboxes and custom designed servo solutions, as well as in-depth operation analysis on its control loading systems for simulators. With a comprehensive North American sales and support channel, WITTENSTEIN is posed to fully support all its partners and their needs in the future.
The Marketing Department looks forward to answering any questions regarding the name/logo changes. Please contact us via email at email@example.com or by phone at (630) 540-5300.
