NEW?ULM - Windings Inc., a privately held company headquartered in New Ulm, has hit a record in sales. Its highest sales month to date was September 2013.
Jason Retzlaff, vice president of sales and marketing at Windings Inc, credits this accomplishment to the dedicated employee owners who have put in long hours and worked diligently building stators and rotors to take the company further than it has ever been.
"We have applied a great deal of resources toward understanding our customer's needs in an effort to provide a truly remarkable experience when dealing with Windings. Our employee owners have bought this into focus, and we are striving to be the worldwide leaders when it comes to service, quality, and technology of our custom stator and rotor products. Without the drive and passion of our EOs, none of this would be possible and I cannot thank them enough for all they have done to hit this historic milestone in the history of Windings," Retzlaff stated in a press release.
Windings Inc.'s vision is to grow the value of the enterprise while being remarkable. The quality found in the stators, rotors, and motor/generators builds are the highest they can be because of the hand work that goes into each one. This hand craftsmanship also brings affordable pricing to the customer.
