alpha gear drives, Inc. was founded in North America in 1992. By 1999, the strong demand for servo gear solutions branched out from industrial applications and was coming from fields such as military and medical technology. To better support customers in these specialized industries, additional subsidiaries of alpha were created, including WITTENSTEIN aerospace & simulation, Inc. and WITTENSTEIN arena, Corp.
With the aim of synergizing research and communication efforts, WITTENSTEIN subsidiaries converged in 2005 with the building of WITTENSTEIN‚â€™s Bartlett, IL headquarters. This move to a centralized facility symbolized WITTENSTEIN‚â€™s commitment to its partners with all sales, development and production competencies unified under one roof.
The ISO accredited WITTENSTEIN facility 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.
Today, WITTENSTEIN develops, manufactures and markets servo drive components and complete electromechanical systems. WITTENSTEIN solutions are used in applications for robotics, packaging, life sciences and aerospace. WITTENSTEIN products are everywhere ‚â€“ from satellites miles above the earth to crude oil extraction miles below.
