Tower Tech Holdings Inc. has completed a corporate name change to Broadwind Energy Inc. All common shares of Broadwind Energy, as well as shares previously traded under the TWRT symbol, will be traded on the over-the-counter market under the ticker symbol BWEN.

Broadwind manufactures, installs and maintains components for energy and infrastructure-related industries with a primary emphasis on the wind energy sector.

While wind tower manufacturing continues to be a major focus for Broadwind, strategic acquisitions have broadened the company's reach and capabilities for a range of energy-related industries. Broadwind has added platform companies with extensive capabilities in gearing systems manufacturing, refurbishing and repair, wind energy facility construction and providing operations, maintenance, repair and refurbishing services for wind production equipment.

"We are in a strong position financially, geographically and operationally to provide the products and services that energy companies need to operate effectively," says J. Cameron Drecoll, Broadwind CEO. "By aggressively expanding our already broad base, we will continue to create advantages for Broadwind, our platform companies, our customers and our partners."
