Global Technologies LLC is an original equipment manufacturer specializing in state-of-the-art, custom-engineered dryer, coolers and web handling systems for the coated paper/paperboard, converting, metal coating and non-wovens industry.  Our experience is extensive with proprietary technologies and software. Our professionals can work with our customers to meet precise production requirements, maximizing productivity and provide cost effective space and energy-conserving solutions.

Our sales and applications engineers work “hands-on” with our customers in conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the application to create designs that meet the most exacting production specifications.   We have a fully equipped manufacturing facility and we build and test our own equipment in our own facilities. 

The Global Technologies group is under the direction of Jim Rennes.   Jim has spent the last 25 years either starting businesses or helping others grow their existing companies. Jim rounded-out a Mechanical Engineering degree with his MBA and marketing emphasis, both from UW-Madison. That foundation led Jim to hone his business development and management skills through the implementation of aggressive sales strategy and strategic marketing initiatives. Jim's hands-on management of profit-and-loss for various companies in a multitude of industries makes him a stand-out among his peers and an asset to any organization.

Joining Jim is Hank Wildenberg. Hank's educational pedigree includes a B.S. in Aeronautics from Parks College of St. Louis University. He then went on to earn his MBA from UW-Oshkosh. The career path of Hank Wildenberg parallels that of Jim Rennes, only with an engineering twist. Like Jim, Hank did a long stint at Megtec, then Spooner Industries and ITS. Rennes credits Hank by saying, "The sales and marketing effort of any company in industry is only as good as its engineers...and Hank is one of the best."

The formation of Global Technologies LLC in 2005 provides a platform to bring together a number of highly experienced personnel together under one arrangement offering design, consulting, manufacturing and service for a myriad of drying systems and applications.
