Pittsburg, CA – Bishop-Wisecarver Group (BWG), a woman-owned family of companies that offer guidance solutions, contract specialty manufacturing and mechatronic-based engineering services, has signed an agreement with T RACE, an established European supplier of linear guides and telescopic slides. Through this strategic partnership, BWG will be able to service a wider range of motion applications by offering a more expansive product line to meet diverse requirements.

“We are pleased to partner with a company that shares our values and philosophies regarding design, customer service and product quality,” said Pamela Kan, president of Bishop-Wisecarver Group. “We look forward to strengthening our product portfolio with T RACE’s innovative guides and slides.”

T RACE products include C-shaped rails with internal raceways, coupled with roller sliders or ball cage sliders, and are suited for applications where environmental conditions are critical and where ease of installation is required. Application areas are very diverse, ranging from CNC-machines and general-automation to civilian and military transport vehicles, medical equipment, civil construction, high-tech furniture and countless others, where traditional re-circulating ball slides are not an adequate linear solution.

“Our product portfolios are complementary and together we can provide customers with an extremely customizable product selection that meets all their diverse load requirements,” said Loris Bolzonaro, CEO at T RACE S.p.A.


T RACE’s headquarters and production facility are located in Aicurzio Milan-Italy and the company maintains a German branch in Burscheid (Düsseldorf).
