The Evolution of Wintech Engineering (Formerly Wintech International): A Historical Overview
Established in 1985 by Richard Macfarlane, Wintech Engineering embarked on a journey of innovation by crafting Fastwire machines powered by the Apple Mac operating system. The product portfolio swiftly expanded to include Hotwire machines, designed for the precision cutting of EPS (expanded polystyrene).
The turning point arrived when Wintech Engineering introduced the game-changing Oscillating Blade machine, revolutionizing flexible polyurethane profiling. Safeguarded by a cluster of patents, this innovation propelled the company onto the global stage, marking its presence at renowned events like Interzum (Köln) and the K Fair (Dusseldorf). While imitators attempted to replicate the Oscillating Blade's prowess, they met with limited success, firmly establishing Wintech's unparalleled position.
The year 2000 witnessed a change in ownership as Macfarlane sold the business. Under Glenn Goodacre's stewardship, the company rebranded as Wintech International, acknowledging its international eminence.
Subsequent ownership by Jim Tweddle in 2009 led to the adoption of the name Wintech Engineering, reflecting the company's core strengths in engineering. The focus shifted decisively towards mechatronics, with a foray into robotic technology for precision foam cutting, especially for intricate 3D shapes.
Geographical boundaries proved no obstacle as Wintech Engineering consistently dispatched its machines to diverse corners, including Asia, North America, the Middle East, Europe, South Africa, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand, and Korea. The company's hallmark attributes endure: compact machine designs, seamless transitions between tasks, and user-centric interfaces. These traits have etched Wintech Engineering's identity, spanning its rich history and its vibrant present.
