History of Dyne Systems
Dyne Systems Company was founded in Milwaukee Wisconsin, by Eugene Bilich and his son, David, in order to manufacture their invention, the Dyn-Loc digital dynamometer and throttle control. For the first few years of the company’s existence it was located in Bilich’s home, as they developed and built the original control for Briggs and Stratton. Jerry Jonen joined the company briefly in 1983 and returned permanently in 1989. Gene’s other son, Dan, designed the original company logo, which was silk screened onto the controls’ front panel and baked in the kitchen oven. Gene’s daughter, Diana, has also been involved in the company since its early years, and until August 2013 served as webmaster ⁄ marketing and providing support to the sales department.
The DTC-1 Throttle Controller is put into production.

In addition to serving as CEO, Jerry specializes in regenerative and non-regenerative AC dynamometer design.
