Bishop-Wisecarver Group (BWG), a WBENC-certified, woman-owned family of companies that offer guidance solutions, contract specialty manufacturing and mechatronic-based engineering services, celebrates its 65th anniversary this year. As a company formed in 1950 to manufacture truck accessories to a thriving and growing business today that provides high-quality linear and rotary motion product lines, BWG’s focus on motion, innovation and quality have remained constant.
BWG’s heritage comes from its founder, Bud Wisecarver, who has spent more than 80 years designing and innovating products that help industries work more efficiently. His patented products can be found in multiple industries including bottlers, pharmaceuticals, textile plants and semiconductors. Leveraging this continued innovation, BWG now houses one of the most expansive range of linear and rotary motion product lines that can withstand harsh environments with excessive debris and water to clean room and low noise environments that require specialized equipment. While Wisecarver is still inventing for the company, his daughter, Pamela Kan, took over BWG leadership as President in 2000. Kan grew up in, and around, BWG and has worked at the company since 1991. As President, Kan helped expand the company’s product offerings, led its first strategic acquisition and obtained WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) certification.
“Our 65th anniversary is truly a celebration of my Dad’s vision and commitment to helping solve each customers’ unique problems – whether someone needs one item or thousands, or needs to configure and customize products to meet their specific needs,” said Pamela Kan, BWG president. “As we’ve grown and expanded, we can now promise customers we are providing the best solutions to meet their ever-changing needs and, if we don’t have the product, we can help them design it. From inception to completion, we have an arsenal of product offerings that can truly help customers wherever they are in the process.”
