Expansion and Rebranding for WITTENSTEIN

WITTENSTEIN’s commitment to excellence and the needs of our customers is a driving force for the company. In this pursuit, we have rebranded our corporate identity to more accurately represent the depth of support available to our current and future customer base.

Effective December 1, 2020:
WITTENSTEIN aerospace & simulation, Inc. becomes WITTENSTEIN motion control, Inc.

The previous name only represented two distinct markets, and not our full line of business. This rebranding better conveys our range of mechatronic systems for simulation, aerospace, defense and oil & gas markets. Aligning all of our specialized expertise for these markets under one brand name gives our simulation customers direct access to our solutions and expertise in these parallel business lines. While the name change conveys a broader range of support, organizationally we remain unchanged, and we retain our designation as a small business.

Organizational Expansion

In further support of our full line of business, we have expanded our operational team as well.
