At Wichita, we design and manufacture pneumatic and hydraulic clutches and brakes, tension control systems and ancillary equipment for industrial, mining and marine applications. Whether it's an off-the-shelf product you need or a bespoke design, from paper manufacture to mining to metal-forming we're proud to be acknowledged as the power transmission systems specialist by which all others are judged.
In addition to our UK factory, we manufacture in the USA at Wichita Falls, Texas. Further facilities are located in continental Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions, and all are supported by a world-wide sales and distribution network. Being part of Altra Industrial Motion’s Heavy Duty Clutch and Brake Group enables us to combine the resources of Wichita with those of AIM. This gives our customers unparalleled access to engineering and sales solutions - for instance, in addition to Wichita dry clutches and brakes, we can also provide Industrial Clutch Products, like the HC oil-immersed clutches and brakes.
Over 50 years of service
We're now into our sixth decade of manufacturing in Bedford, England. Product innovation, continuous investment, consistent high quality and sound customer service have all been contributors to our growth and success during the last 50 years. But most of all, we owe it to the loyalty of our customers, many of whom have been placing their business with us since we assembled our first clutch here in 1961.
Quality to rely on
Wichita is accredited to ISO9001:2008 quality standards, and approved by the world's Ship Classification Societies. Wichita quality control doesn't end with manufacture though - our service and support continues long after installation with a help-line available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, immediate availability of Genuine Wichita and Industrial Clutch parts and spares through our QuickServe facility, and on-site assistance from experienced engineers.
