On August 31st, 2018 Winamac Coil Spring celebrated their 70th Anniversary with an employee appreciation day. Festivities for the day included games, food, cash prizes, gifts, and a memorial presentation for the late, Joe Pesaresi
Over the companies 70 year history, WCS has grown from a one man shop with founder Walter Pesaresi, to a 180 employee strong company, that in 2017 shipped over fifteen million pounds of springs around the globe. Becoming a major OEM spring supplier to some of the worlds most recognizable brands in agriculture and the off road industry has been quite an accomplishment for the rural Indiana based company.
Company President, Tony Pesaresi said in a brief presentation, “that we honor those who have gone before us and who helped us get to where we are today, and we invite those of you here today to join along side us to help take us on the journey over the next 70 years.”
The Winamac Coil Spring quality team, lead by Ryan Edge, was recently awarded with the ISO9001:2015 Quality Certificate. The effort to comply to the new quality standards was a significant undertaking that involved a large number of Winamac Coil Spring team members. Everyone from the companies president to the production staff participated in moving the company to a process flow chart control system, identifying the flow and function of virtually every department and every function.
Congratulation, WCS on becoming ISO9001:2015 Certified.
Polaris Industries, makers of industry leading off road vehicles, recently awarded Winamac Coil Spring with not one, but two, coveted awards.
Winamac Coil Spring won the 2016 Quality Performance Award and the 2016 Delivery Performance Award. “It’s nice to have our entire team recognized by a major OEM like Polaris. Our hard work and dedication to making quality springs is truly the key to our success,” said company president, Tony Pesaresi.
“We’ve adopted the slogan “Springs That Work” for a reason.” According to Brian Shafer, Sales/Marketing Manager at WCS, “You can drag our products through the dirt, mud and snow and they keep right on delivering a quality performance each and every time.”
Congratulations to the entire Winamac Coil Spring, Inc. team on a job well done!
