This supply chain leader and Barry Wehmiller company has impressed not just with its products, but its people.
“We measure success by the way we touch the lives of people.”
This is the type of company Accraply endeavors to be each and every day. A member of the Barry Wehmiller Family of companies, Accraply is a leader in label application equipment for a multitude of industries across the globe. The company also specializes in converting equipment for the flexible packaging and shrink sleeve label converting industries.
Providing its employees with a fulfilling career is at the top of its list, as is being the kind of company people doing business with, investing in, and having as part of their families and communities.
BackgroundThe Accraply of today is an amalgamation of several strategic acquisitions, which has brought together some of the most trusted brands in the industry.
From Stanford—which provides material suppliers with the latest equipment in shrink sleeve seamers and other machines—to Trine—roll-fed labeling equipment—Acrapply provides the best brands for the industry.
Accraply’s brand of self-adhesive labeling equipment marries the broadest range of pressure-sensitive labelers in the industry by uniting Avery Labeling Machines, CCL Labeling Equipment, and Mateer Burt with our core line of Accraply Labeling Equipment.
Recently, Accraply added the Harland brand of pressure sensitive labellers to the Accraply family of brands.
All of the company’s equipment can be configured specifically for its customers’ plants, products, and operating requirements. This customization allows its clients to maximize efficiency and ensure suitability for the application of the equipment.
Accraply invites its customers to work with the company to plan, purchase, and produce to discover the benefits of single-source automation.
Accraply services everything it sells including the installed base of acquired brands. The aftermarket team provides technical assistance, spare and replacement parts, change parts, upgrades, field service, and pre-owned equipment with exceptional commitment to customer satisfaction.
CultureThe Barry Wehmiller Guiding Principles of Leadership uphold a dynamic company culture, which celebrates employee development and promotes awareness of the value each associate delivers.
This vision is the foundation of Accraply and is based on the idea that communication, trust, celebration, respect, and responsible freedom are important tenets of an ideal corporate culture.
“By sending our associates home each night enriched by their experience with us rather than drained by it, we enable our team members to be better parents, better spouses, better friends, and better members of the community,” the company said.
Two main tenants support this vision: Accraply’s promise to being a lean enterprise, and its commitment to its employees’ personal growth through its own institute, Barry Wehmiller University.
The company interprets lean not just as tools and techniques designed to enhance productivity, but as an organization-wide model for strong leadership, empowering associates to achieve fulfilling and meaningful roles in the business.
Accraply’s organization-wide leadership model—known as the Living Legacy of Leadership, or L3 Journey—enables the company’s team members to achieve fulfilling and meaningful roles in the business.
Barry Wehmiller University courses allow its associates to advance skills in communications, leadership, client/customer service, lean thinking, and sustainable business practices.
The combination of its lean techniques, the L3 Journey, and courses contributes to a rich cultural environment employees apply and develop their talents and feel a sense of fulfillment for their contributions.
The People Matter“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,” said Barry Wehmiller’s Chairman and CEO, Bob Chapman.
“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.”
