About Our Company
Berkshire Group, Ltd. was established in 1987 with our management being involved in capital machinery development for another twenty years prior to the start of the company. We have designed, built and installed over one hundred engineering projects involving many types of machinery in various industries from packaging to personal care products.
We back these projects up with a qualified support staff to ensure long term satisfaction. Our customer support is focused on maintaining constant communication throughout a project so you are always aware of where your project stands. If an engineering change or testing may affect any part of the project, we notify you immediately! Good project documentation is another important factor with Berkshire Group. We take pride in creating accurate drawings, schematics, and assembly layouts for support of any questions after the machine has shipped.
The history of Berkshire Group, Ltd. begins with the vision of Gary P. Webster and the expertise and experience he has gained from years of working in manufacturing environments. His experience began as a plastics process technician through engineering and general management. A mechanical engineer by degree, Gary has served in chief engineer's capacity with Mannesmann Demag Plastic Machinery, Van Dorn Plastic Machinery Co., Beloit Corporation and Monsanto Company. Many of the responsibilities involved developing and implementing "state of the art" machinery for various manufacturing processes.
We take pride in keeping up with new technologies and incorporating these technologies into state of the art solutions for our customers. We strive to listen carefully to our customers, analyze their needs objectively and then offer solutions that will exceed their requirements.
As international economics impacts our customers' businesses, we strive to provide the latest and best available technical solutions. We realize competitiveness is a necessity to keeping manufacturing in the U.S. and we want to assist our customers in meeting their goals. We will continue to strive to be responsive to our customers and provide world class solutions to their problems.
Long gone are the days where automation is assumed to take a person's job away. Today brings the awareness that if a manufacturing plant is not automated, the likelihood of ceasing operations is high. We aim to minimize lost jobs to overseas--lost jobs being far more frightening than automating a facility to maximize efficiency.
While most of our projects are proprietary in detail, we are excited to be involved in planning fully automated manufacturing cells, employing sophisticated part handling, vision and other in-process measuring systems, ABB robotic solutions and in some cases, totally revamped manufacturing processes.
