About Wolter

Effective Jan 1, 2022 we rebranded!

Since the Wolter story began in 1962, our company, like our industry, has been constantly evolving. We’ve grown to become one of the largest and most diverse industrial equipment and productivity solutions providers in the country.

Along the way, we’ve assembled the parts and pieces necessary to address our clients’ unique productivity challenges. In 2011, we gathered our companies under one umbrella, Wolter Group, LLC to make our collective strength more easily recognizable. Now, we’ve taken that a step further and rebranded all of our member companies under a single name: Wolter.
