TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

Innovation and Technology

With an original investment of $12.50, F.A. Wittern Sr. started Hawkeye Novelty, named after the state of Iowa. One of the first machines was a penny peanut dispenser that had a special innovation that was new for its time. Since then, The Wittern Group has grown to provide quality-controlled dispensing and automatic merchandising solutions across many industries globally.
