Founded in 1973, DWFritz Automation became a pioneer and leader of high-volume precision automation.
In 1973, Dennis Fritz had a vision of creating a company of problem solvers. With his background in machine design and mechanical engineering, he founded DWFritz. The company later became a leader in high-speed, high-precision automation. Dennis' core values of honesty, integrity, continuous improvement, collaboration, and "wowing" clients, plus some good humor, serve as the foundation for the company today.
In the mid-1980s, DWFritz Automation had the opportunity to partner with Hewlett Packard on their innovative ink jet technologies. This relationship was so successful that eventually HP began outsourcing multiple projects to DWFritz as their own business grew.
In the late 1990s, Dennis’ son, Mike, joined the company to work on business development, operations, and strategy. By the early 2000s, DWFritz was focusing its attention on building the highly precise automated systems we produce today — trademarking the concept Microns and Milliseconds. The company soon entered the consumer electronics market.
From 2007 to the present, Mike took over as President and CEO, strengthening DWFritz's unique capabilities of delivering high-speed, high-volume precision automation solutions for advanced manufacturing. DWFritz’s strong leadership team is focused on client relationship-building while promoting an environment of strategic thinkers that can solve the toughest precision automation challenges.
Sales, engineering, and project management staff continue to wow the customer and build brilliant machines the entire company is proud of. DWFritz has grown to over 500 people globally.
