Wiggly-Amps: Our Story

 

Wiggly-Amps…what an unusual company name! Well, yes, but it’s also unforgettable and here’s why: Jon Witte, Managing Director of Wiggly-Amps, retired from his former career as a RAF pilot after sustaining a serious back injury. Jon’s injury occurred when he had to eject from his Jaguar fighter plane during take-off when the engine failed. Having made a full and remarkable recovery, Jon founded Wiggly-Amps in July 2000. In the RAF the term “wiggly amps” is a colloquial description of the advanced electronics and software seen in today’s military. So, the name Wiggly-Amps nods to Jon’s RAF career and defines the aims and abilities of the company he has established.

Our passion is building software that makes a real difference to people’s lives and the way organisations operate. The most rewarding part of our business is hearing feedback from satisfied customers, telling us how our software have made their jobs easier and, on occasion, helped saved people’s lives – that’s something a developer doesn’t often get to do.

Integrity, quality, experience.
