Windings Inc. is a privately held company headquartered in New Ulm, Minnesota, U.S.A., with domestic and international production facilities and capabilities.
Windings Inc. was established in New Ulm in 1965 by J.W. McKinney. Upon McKinney’s retirement in 1983, Windings Inc. was sold to Roger Ryberg. In 1989, 1991, 2005 and 2014 the New Ulm facility was enlarged and upgraded for added operations with over 75,000 square feet of production space.
In 1998, Windings Inc. formed an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) for a planned purchase and transition of Company stock to the employees of Windings. The higher sense of responsibility that comes with employee ownership has made Windings even more responsive to customer needs and encourages innovation to bring greater value to its customers. In 2008, the company became 100% employee-owned.
The current President and CEO of Windings is Heather Braimbridge-Cox.
