We are committed to excellence, delivering superior customer service, and making a meaningful impact in the world. As collaborators and partners, we are deeply invested in our customers’ success. Barbizon is your trusted partner in solutions that stand the test of time.

Our Core Values

At Barbizon, these Core Values are the heart and soul of our organization. They serve as the foundation of our decisions and are woven into the very fabric of who we are. Every decision we make, every relationship we forge, is a testament to these values. They guide our interactions with one another, our customers, and our partners. Our shared commitment, rooted in these guiding principles, is our beacon illuminating our collective journey.

  1. Teamwork. Trust each other, succeed together, and grow together. Teamwork is more than collaboration; it’s a commitment to excellence through mutual trust, respect, and shared objectives. This unity not only drives our success but also creates a resilient and adaptive organization, capable of overcoming any challenge and seizing every opportunity. Celebrate shared successes, and support each other, our customers, and our partners through thick and thin. Team collaboration and transparency ensure the best decisions for Barbizon as a whole.
  2. Relationships. We thrive by forging enduring relationships with our community—end-users, contractors, distributors, consultants, engineers, designers, vendors, and colleagues. Our commitment to excellence in service is not just about transactions; it’s about acting as essential partners. We recognize that our relationships are the bedrock of our existence, and our continued growth is inextricably linked to the trust and loyalty we earn through every interaction.
  3. Ownership. Act with intention. Deliver results. Be accountable. As employee-owners of Barbizon, we are custodians of its success. Own outcomes; make informed decisions and act responsibly with Barbizon’s legacy, reputation, and future in mind.
  4. Inclusion. Every perspective enriches us. Our strength lies in our collective diversity. Practice active listening; make space for all voices and backgrounds. Intentionally seek out diverse perspectives. Embody empathy and act with integrity.
  5. Expertise. Our expertise is the foundation of our commitment to excellence. It’s the depth of knowledge, skill, and dedication we invest in every interaction, product, and project that adds value and sets us apart. We are more than just a company; we are a hub of industry-grown experts. Our team comprises industry veterans and fresh perspectives, each bringing valuable experience and specialized know-how to the table. This collective expertise enables us to deliver superior solutions to our customers and partners. Our customers and colleagues not only benefit from our comprehensive knowledge, but through our collaborations, each contributes to the ever-growing expertise that defines Barbizon.
