Company Overview

How it all started -  James A. Wineman, Founder and CEO, looks back

James A. Wineman

 "I was offered an early retirement from General Motors in 1991 and decided to accept it so that I could start Wineman Technology. I felt that with the knowledge and experience I had acquired in the manufacturing engineering field, that I could provide valuable service in the areas of engineering and building control systems, data acquisition systems, and test machines. I chose this business because my education is in electrical and mechanical engineering with more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing engineering and management positions that encompassed this type of equipment.

The company has grown from just me, to 45 professional and skilled trades employees with expertise in mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and programming engineering. I am very pleased with the technical capabilities of the employees and the can-do attitude that everyone shows. The business focus for the last 10 years has been on data acquisition systems, dynamometer systems, servo-hydraulics, real-time controllers, HIL systems, and general testing machines. Each project is a custom design and build which necessitates acquiring knowledge of the customer's product features and designing to their specifications of performance.

WTI has customers in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia. They are in the auto, off-road vehicle, residential product, defense, and aerospace industries as well as in many others. In 2009, WTI was recognized by INC magazine for being one of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in America."
