We’re building a better world.

We’re an organization fiercely committed to improving the lives of our team members across the globe. By providing meaningful work in an environment of care and compassion, we send them home fulfilled by their time with us, rather than drained by it. We understand what every human being on the planet desires to know who they are and what they do matter. As a business, we have a unique opportunity to let them know that they do.

This belief is at the heart of Barry-Wehmiller’s Guiding Principles of Leadership, our vision document that has become the very foundation of our organization. It is based upon the conviction that communication, trust, celebration, respect and responsible freedom are important tenets of an ideal corporate culture. It’s what we mean when we say:

We measure success by the way we touch the lives of people.

One of the ways we live this vision is through our commitment to being a Lean Enterprise. We have embraced Lean not only as a collection of business tools and techniques designed to enhance productivity, but as an organization-wide leadership model that enables our team members to achieve fulfilling and meaningful roles in the business. The powerful fusion of Lean techniques with our Guiding Principles of Leadership is known throughout Barry-Wehmiller as our Living Legacy of Leadership, or L3 Journey.

Another way we embrace our commitment to our associates’ personal growth and fulfillment is through our innovative learning institute, Barry-Wehmiller University. Through BWU courses, associates can advance their skills in communications, leadership, client/customer service, lean thinking and sustainable business practices.

Barry-Wehmiller’s ongoing journey of leadership, empowerment and continuous improvement contributes to a rich cultural environment in which people can realize their gifts, apply and develop their talents, and feel a genuine sense of fulfillment for their contributions in pursuit of a common inspirational vision. Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller’s chairman and CEO, summed it up best when he said, “Providing exceptional engineering and consulting services and building outstanding capital equipment are Barry-Wehmiller’s value propositions, but we have the most pride in something else we build – great people. Business organizations need to realize the enormous potential they have to make this world a better place by creating environments where people can develop and be recognized for their gifts and return home fulfilled.”


A $1.5 billion global capital equipment and engineering consulting company, Barry-Wehmiller prefers to measure its success by the way it touches the lives of people.
