Our Culture

A Culture of Leadership...

As our Chairman Bob Chapman says, "We measure success by the way we touch the lives of people."  As a member of the Barry-Wehmiller family, Pneumatic Scale Angelus strives to be the kind of company that enables its associates to return home each day with a true sense of fulfillment.  Our goal is to be a company that people enjoy working for, doing business with, investing in, and having as part of their communities.

We believe that sending our team members home each night enriched by their experience with us enables them to be better parents, better spouses, better friends and better members of the community. This belief is at the heart of Barry-Wehmiller's Guiding Principles of Leadership, and it is our vision for our culture that has become the very foundation of our organization.  It is based upon the conviction that communication, trust, celebration, mutual respect and responsible freedom are essential tenets of a healthy and rewarding corporate culture.

...Where Everybody Matters

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.  As a part of this, celebration of both individual and team achievements are a fundamental and pervasive part of our culture.  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.

Barry-Wehmiller also invests significantly in the development of its team members. One of the best examples of this commitment to the personal growth and fulfillment of our team members is our industry-leading learning institute, Barry-Wehmiller University (BWU). Through BWU courses, associates advance their skills in communications, leadership, customer service, lean principles and sustainable business practices. Classes are offered all over the world and are administered by certified trainers who are part of the Barry-Wehmiller team.

Barry-Wehmiller's ongoing journey of leadership, empowerment and continuous improvement contributes to a rich cultural environment in which people can realize their gifts, develop and apply their talents and feel a genuine sense of accomplishment for their contributions in pursuit of a common inspirational vision.  Bob sums it up best when he says, "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, be recognized for their gifts and return home fulfilled."
