Stephen continued with the sale of component and process control systems through Wistex, however also began to evolve the company more into a distributorship / service company. He believed that if the people of Wistex could service everything they sold, the company would become a more valuable resource to its customers. This evolution still holds true to how Wistex is currently run. Not only does the company have the ability to sell products from top of the line manufacturers, but Wistex team members are also factory trained and certified to service the equipment.
1988-2007 Wistex II, continued to be led by Stephen W. Crognale, Sr. The process control and component sales stayed strong as the service side of the company tremendously grew. Wistex soon became know as a service station for Variable Frequency Drives, both HVAC and Industrial, throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.
Nick and Christina Pittaoulis having been growing and evolving Wistex II to meet and exceed current market conditions and requirements. Through the years that Nick and Christina have led Wistex, the business changed very much and has grown to become a multi-million dollar Online Sale, Service and Distribution Company. This growth is due to hard work, education, being ahead of industry trends and having the very best group of people working together as Team Wistex!
