Since 1987, Barry-Wehmiller has invited more than 115 companies to join our family, helping us to grow from a $20 million business into a diverse $3+ billion global leader in industrial manufacturing and more. But in every one of the businesses we acquire—or adopt, as we like to think--we look beyond the financial statements and see people with families and futures and, so often, untapped potential.
Although the traditional investor mindset remains “buy, build and flip,” with every business we acquire, our goal is to buy, build and keep on building, alongside the people who made the business possible. We understand that companies don’t create value; people do. And when we bring forth the best from a company’s people, together we create long-term value that makes all stakeholders proud. Through the integration of Barry-Wehmiller’s unique blend of strategy and culture, we preserve the legacy of many family businesses that might not have survived, helping them to thrive once again, as well as take the reins of successful businesses to make sure their legacies endure for future generations.
