Wichita ClutchWichita Clutch was originally founded in 1949 to be the sole supplier of clutches to Wilson Manufacturing for their line of drilling and service rigs. In 1954, Wichita Clutch was incorporated and became a division of Wilson Manufacturing. This was the beginning of Wichita's efforts to sell clutches and brakes to OEM's, machine re-builders and end-users.

In 1961, our sister facility in Bedford, England, Wichita UK, was started as a joint venture between Wichita USA and United Flexible Metallic Tube. Wichita UK has been manufacturing a wide range of Wichita air operated friction clutches and brakes ever since.

Wichita UK is accredited to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality and environmental standards and approved by various ship classification societies. Wichita quality control doesn't end with manufacturing though - our service and support continues long after installation with a help line available 24 hours a day every day of the year.
