Our History
Design Group was founded in 1986 with a single office, a few technical professionals, and a compelling vision: to provide technical solutions to our clients, in a manner which was autonomous and independent from the Barry-Wehmiller equipment divisions. The early years were shaped by a strong reliance upon packaging integration services for our historic brewery and soft drink clients.

Over the course of the next 25 years, Design Group steadily transformed its vision through careful thought and deliberate decisions. While the beverage industry remains a very meaningful segment of our business, the firm has reduced its reliance on any one industry or client. We have worked hard to achieve greater diversity and balance, and Design Group today serves a broad range of market sectors such as food and dairy, personal care products, household goods, pharmaceutical products, chemical industry, and energy and utilities, etc. We have focused our efforts to build balance within our markets, service offerings, geographical locations, and customer base, so that no single client, market, or region dominates our business strategy.
