CertTech Acquires WTI, Sets a New Standard for Test Engineer
LENEXA, Kan., March 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CertTech, an expert in safety and mission-critical applications, announced today that the company has acquired WTI (formerly Wineman Technology, Inc.), a leader in custom test system development, to further enhance end-to-end test and real-time simulation capabilities for clients worldwide. With this acquisition, CertTech can more comprehensively serve government prime contractors and leading Fortune 500 companies in highly regulated industries such as automotive, off-highway, rail, space, aerospace, defense, and medical devices.
New products, new test architectures, new regulations: New success.
Product development and regulatory compliance is dependent upon early and continuous testing. With automated test systems and simulated, real-world environments, engineers can uncover product performance details early in the development process, saving significant resources.
The addition of WTI compliments CertTech's core capabilities in electronics and software test systems with WTI's deep expertise in electromechanical test cell applications, including hydraulic fluid power and dynamometer/rotating equipment applications, with a focus on hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations. From requirements planning and test strategy to MIL, SIL, and HIL, to regulatory compliance and maintenance and support, CertTech provides complete support throughout the entire lifecycle.
"We have long-admired the team at WTI and their industry leading solutions. WTI's strengths in electro-mechanical test cells and HIL applications are highly complementary to CertTech's core expertise in test systems for electronics and software testing," said Jeff Gray, CEO of CertTech. "Clients trust us to deliver test solutions that will help them meet rigorous regulatory requirements and time-to-market goals, and the addition of the WTI team better positions us to offer a significant depth and breadth of strategic support across multiple domains."
