Some companies offer a limited range of products, but not iwis drive systems LLC. “What we do is we go to our various customers [and] design and develop products that meet their particular application needs,” co-owner Dan Egenolf says.
“We don’t go to them and say, ‘Here’s our catalog and pick out a product,’” he asserts. “We design a product that will overcome [their challenges].”
Based in Indianapolis, iwis drive systems is a division of iwis, a Munich, Germany-based producer of engine and drive systems for automotive, industrial and agricultural equipment OEMs. The division’s history goes back to 2004, Egenolf says.
“What took place was our German parent company had developed a relationship with John Deere,” he recalls. “They were doing a very good job in Germany and John Deere asked if they would like to work for them in the U.S.A.”
