Walter USA hosted 150 people for the inauguration of its new North American Technology Center in Waukesha, Wis., on October 5 this year. In attendance was Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, in addition to distributors, business partners and end users of Walter products.
The technology center, a 40,000 square-foot and $2.5 million investment, is designed to help educate customers, channel partners and employees on Walter’s product offerings, while providing the cornerstone to further enhance Walter.
The new North American Technology Center provides a fully integrated machine shop for demonstrations and process development for components involving real-world applications and incorporates training and auditorium facilities to provide a resource for customers. It will also house strategic management and administration offices for Walter Americas.
