Global industrial gear manufacturer IG Watteeuw is changing its name to IGW. The rebranding follows some recent changes to the company’s operating structure introduced to support the company’s plan for sustainable growth triggered by a growing interest from new and emerging markets and opportunities to build on its international reach.
Changes include the introduction of a centralized sales and marketing team, which will bring together its gear and gearbox services for the first time. Its locations will also be brought under centralized control, led by Holger Stehling. IGW operates in three key markets, transport, energy and manufacturing industries with sites in Belgium, Czech Republic, Romania, China and the USA as well as headquarters in Belgium. The company has been manufacturing premium customized gears and gearboxes for over 60 years and also provides a range of specialist support services to its customers across the globe.
The rebranding will make it possible for even more clients to benefit from our premium products and services.
During this time the company has built a reputation for its commitment to excellence and innovation, providing high quality, specialist transmission solutions in a wide variety of sectors; these include the company’s core applications of rail, transport and marine, as well as a number of new markets including oil and gas, power generation and waste water treatment plants. Holger Stehling, Chief Executive IGW said: “This is an exciting time for IGW, with our manufacturing competences and capacities exceeding market expectations. We now have the opportunity to offer our extensive range of products and services to an even wider audience, entering new markets and achieving a greater geographical reach than ever before. As such we took the decision to take a fresh look at how we present ourselves to the outside world.”
“We’re part of a family owned group of companies, and we are proud of the fact that we balance a global manufacturing capability with the ability to provide a local and personal service. These allow us to maintain our agility and respond quickly to the needs of our customers. The business has been established on a tradition of power and precision, providing engineering excellence at low risk and best value to our customers. Now, as we extend our reach in the international marketplace we want to create a brand, and an identity, that not only reflects our heritage but will support the organization as we accelerate into new market sectors around the world. This isn’t just about a new name and a new look, it’s about a new approach to the way we operate within the global marketplace and our aspirations for the future.”
*IGW was founded in 1949 by Alfons Watteeuw. Today it is wholly owned by BMT Group.
