In 1982 founder and Chief Executive Officer Jerry Winfield drew upon and expanded his unique experience as a designer of STD bus cards for industrial electronics and the petroleum industry to start his own business. Sandra Winfield and Robert Burckle later joined the business.
Originally known as WinTech Systems, the company specialized in industrial computing, designing some of the first STD bus products to operate at temperatures from -40 to +85 C. The company was renamed WinSystems, Inc. and was eventually moved to the current location in 1986. As they gained customers, Jerry developed a thriving company culture while adding the necessary key employees, many of whom are still with the company today.
The company prospered and expanded into the current 55,000 square foot campus site in Arlington, Texas. In 2007, WinSystems became a 100% Employee Owned ESOP. As founders of WinSystems, Inc., Jerry, Sandra, and Bob have modeled a legacy of generosity to their families, friends, and employees and continue to serve on the Board of Directors.
