SAGINAW — Wineman Technology Inc., a developer of software and test systems for manufacturers, says it will triple the size of its Clarkston office to 6,000 square feet and double its staff to as many as 20 engineers after record order growth of 20 percent in 2013.
Engineers will use the increased lab space to perform processes — such as start-up, debug and trouble-shooting of equipment — previously available only at Wineman’s headquarters in Saginaw.
“At Wineman Technology, we have experienced consistent growth over the years, and we anticipate steady growth for the foreseeable future,” said Wineman president Matt Eurich. “By expanding our Clarkston offices, we can grow our staff, specifically in the automotive field, and provide employees with the resources, technology and hands-on training needed to give our customers high-quality and efficient service.”
Wineman also announced plans to add an engine dynamometer cell to the shop in Clarkston in 2015 to aid in the development of its flagship Inertia test software and boost employee expertise in dynamometer and engine technology through first-hand experience. Customers will also be able to use the new dynamometer as needed for their own R&D projects.
“The Detroit market has grown over the past few years with the resurgence of the auto industry and we’re excited to be a part of that,” Eurich said. “By allowing final engineering to take place closer to this market, we can better collaborate with our customers during the development of equipment, helping them get to market faster and more efficiently.”
The Detroit expansion comes on the heels of Wineman moving in to the Aegis Solutions site in Raleigh, N.C. to grow business in the southeast.
Wineman was established in 1991 and offers dynamometer systems, hydraulics, data acquisition systems, real time controllers, hardware-in-the-loop systems and custom test machines. Wineman’s off-the-shelf and custom test cell products and services can be used in the automotive, aerospace, industrial, commercial, off-highway, and agricultural industries.
