CORPORATE PROFILE

Willow Technology, Inc. is a privately held company founded in January, 1991.

In July, 2008, Willow's headquarters relocated from Silicon Valley to just north of Bellingham, Washington in rural Whatcom County and 10 minutes from the Canadian border and began construction of a new Grade A office building to serve as its headquarters and data center. In December, 2009 Willow was able to move into its new office.

Willow's primary business is in messaging middleware software products. Willow ports WebSphere MQ middleware to many different operating systems, and the company has been the leading independent supplier of WebSphere MQ client and server products since 1996. The products are developed under licensing agreements with IBM Corporation and are owned by Willow and sold under the Willow logo.

Willow has also developed its own line of MQ add-on products under the brand viaMQ.  These products allow users to take advantage of MQ infrastructures without having to modify existing applications.

Willow is also the parent of AirZip, Inc., a company acquired from its investors in January, 2005. AirZip specializes in market leading information rights management, and patented image compression technologies. In December, 2016, AirZip was fully merged into Willow.

Willow's products and services fulfill a vital role supporting business critical functions at Global 2000 companies across industries in some 100 countries.

Willow operates in several business areas:

  • Messaging Middleware
    Willow ports WebSphere MQ middleware to many different operating systems, and the company remains the leading independent supplier of WebSphere MQ client and server products. The products are developed under licensing agreements with IBM Corporation and are owned by Willow and sold under the Willow logo.
    Willow has developed its own line of MQ add-on products under the brand viaMQ.  These products allow users to take advantage of MQ infrastructures without having to modify existing applications.

  • Technical Support
    Willow offers 24x7 (continuous) technical support to its customers worldwide.
    Willow provides supports for both its own products and IBM's distributed WebSphere MQ platforms.

  • Remote Operations Service
    Many smaller organizations do not have the staffing and expertise to maintain WebSphere MQ networks, especially when the primary purpose of WebSphere MQ is to connect to external suppliers or customers. Willow maintains several WebSphere MQ networks on behalf of its customers, offering monitoring, troubleshooting and maintenance for a fixed annual fee.

  • Timesharing Service
    Willow's laboratories have over one hundred enterprise class servers running more than two dozen different operating systems with high speed connections to the internet.
    Willow customers, partners and ISVs use these facilities for benchmarking, development, testing, and proof of concept validation. These can be done locally on site, or remotely via secure VPN connections.
