Mr. Nikolaus Pohr, Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany-Chicago and Mrs. Simone Pohl, President and CEO GACC Midwest recently visited the WITTENSTEIN North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in Bartlett, IL, accompanied by Dr. Anna-Katharina Wittenstein, Peter Riehle, and Dr. Lars Aldinger.
WITTENSTEIN’s commitment to provide more “Made in America” electromechanical and motion control products led to this auspicious event.
WITTENSTEIN is a global design, engineering and manufacturer of high-tech, precision electromechanical and motion control systems used within robotics, packaging, aerospace simulation and defense, machine tools, and a wide variety of other manufacturing automation applications.
In addition to a plant tour, much discussion focused on opportunities to support education and training programs in the United States for capable and cutting edge engineers through WITTENSTEIN on-the-job internships. Dr. Wittenstein and Mrs. Pohl are pioneering this program with universities throughout the U.S.. This special initiative is expected to be an instrumental support system for the motion control industry as more manufacturing and production returns to North America.
Since opening the North American operation in 1992, WITTENSTEIN has focused on investments to ensure that customers can continue to expect highest quality, cost-effective solutions, supported by expert teams of engineers and technicians. The fully automated dual spindle DMG Twin 65 is the newest addition to the WITTENSTEIN state of the art production facility. Integrated 3D graphic inputs with high performance Siemens 840D controls ensure highest precision, flexibility, and performance.
As WITTENSTEIN continues to grow in North America, further expansion and development is planned for the centrally located Bartlett, IL. headquarters as well as the WITTENSTEIN Technology Center in Santa Clara, CA.
