Bartlett, IL — Alpha Gear Drives Inc. will change its name to Wittenstein Inc. in July 2008 to be consistent with the other business units of the company. The company, whose Canadian operations are based in Waterdown, ON, is known for its blue-coloured gearboxes.

Alpha 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’s Bartlett, IL, headquarters.

The company 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. Today, Wittenstein develops, manufactures and markets servo drive components and complete electromechanical systems.
