Under the name Witels Albert Germany, the company expanded their activities in the design and development of straightening devices and other tools for the wire industry in 1970. Always investing in R & D, Witels Albert demonstrated continuous innovation. New products and industry developments, and the patents we hold, are a testament to our belief in research and development.

In an effort to supply North American customers easy access to technical support and the Witels Albert product line, Witels Albert USA was established in 1996. The technical sales team understands the straightening process and the processes that proceed and follow it.
