ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Oct. 7, 2016 — With Barry-Wehmiller Design Group, expertise runs deep. In fact, that’s why many of the world’s leading companies trust Design Group as a premier supplier of manufacturing automation, facility design, and other engineering consulting services.

Design Group’s senior consultants will be in booth S-2100 at Pack Expo 2016, Nov. 6-9 in Chicago, Ill., to discuss specific packaging integration, process engineering and facility design needs, and to provide clients with value-added solutions to their operational challenges.

Established in 1986 with a mission to provide engineering and technology solutions to the industry, Design Group has grown from a single office in St. Louis to more than 35 locations across the U.S. A testament to the quality work of Design Group professionals and the trust they have earned from their customers is the firm’s steady track record of growth and performance. Design Group recently announced that the organization has eclipsed 1,000 professionals for the first time in its history. This historic achievement comes at the same time as Design Group celebrates its 30-year anniversary. Wilhelm expects that the firm will double in size again within the next six to seven years.

“We are attracting incredible talent into Design Group today, and our business model allows professionals to participate directly in the development of sustainable client relationships,” said Joseph Wilhelm, Design Group Managing Partner. “Our team members appreciate the ability to work directly with clients in this capacity, as they help build the business for the future.”

“This pattern of sustained growth and critical mass enables us to serve our clients as a financially strong, viable engineering firm providing technology solutions to a wide range of markets and industries,” concluded Wilhelm.

Design Group will be among a number of Barry-Wehmiller businesses – including Accraply, BW Container Systems, Hayssen Flexible Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus, Synerlink and Thiele Technologies – at Pack Expo 2016 in booth S-2100. The companies will host a “Packaging Challenge” forum and special appearances by Barry-Wehmiller CEO Bob Chapman, who recently released his book, Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring For Your People Like Family.
