(Business Wire) -- ITT Corporation's (NYSE: ITT) Control Technologies business, a leading manufacturer of energy absorption and precision motion control products, offers its customers an array of online tools for its Enidine and Turn-Act brands. A recent addition to the portfolio – an online configurator for its Compact Automation brand – further enhances the customer experience by streamlining the ordering process and reducing turnaround time for those products.
