What Do I-IDM Houston and Wittenstein Have in Common?

A new RaceWay gas station and convenience store recently opened in a shared parking lot with our Houston office. One of the perks of the construction was a new “retaining pool” behind the RaceWay. I couldn’t help but think of the resemblance between Innovative-IDM Houston (middle photo) and Wittenstein’s US HQ in Bartlett, Ill. (Top photo). I guess the main difference is there is water in Wittenstein’s pond. And without water, I guess our pond is really just a ditch.

The dramatic photo at the bottom shows thirsty Innovative-IDM employees stampeding the RaceWay on opening day. That’s Houston operations manager Charles Manning with the nonchalant look of hands in pockets as he sashays toward the door, trying not to draw attention to himself. But don’t let that conservative approach fool you; seconds later, he had recklessly squandered $1.49 of his family’s savings on a Crush drink.
