CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

BENEFITS

From humble beginnings as a local wooden furniture manufacturer in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Gamber-Johnson has developed into the global go-to partner for equipment mounting products — fulfilling the company’s cause of "supporting technology to help save the world."

This evolution from producing furniture in 1954 to becoming a 21st-century world leader in mounting equipment for electronics was a natural progression, fostered by a company culture of innovation and continuous improvement. As it expanded, Gamber-Johnson began producing fleet vehicle mounts for radios and computers, then providing solutions for material handling and point-of-sale, including mounts for security cameras and more.

Today, Gamber-Johnson is still proudly “made in Wisconsin” and manufactures mounting components and systems for laptop and tablet computers, radios, light and siren controls, surveillance cameras, point-of-use kiosks, printers, keyboards and other devices — all meticulously designed to be rugged, reliable, and responsive.

Partnering with major technology manufacturers such as Dell, Getac, Panasonic, Samsung, and Zebra is key to this success. Gamber-Johnson is a trusted name in the industry; long known as the go-to partner for major rugged computer OEMs. With more than 20 patents and counting, the company continues to evolve, creating numerous jobs and meaningful opportunities for community stewardship.

As a pioneer in design innovation — receiving numerous awards and accolades as an industry leader — Gamber-Johnson has been the preferred choice of fleet managers for decades. Gamber-Johnson is a worldwide corporation with subsidiaries around the globe, including Precision Mounting Technologies (PMT) in Calgary. Currently, the company exports to more than 40 countries, with installations in thousands of fleets worldwide. Heroes in police, fire and emergency medical services rely on Gamber products every day in order to better protect and serve.

For these significant contributions to vital industries on a global scale, Gamber-Johnson has received numerous accolades. These include the President’s “E” and “E” Star Awards, recognizing outstanding contributions and growth to U.S. exports; Wisconsin Governor’s Export Achievement Award, which honors the company’s work in furthering Wisconsin’s global economy; and the Cygnus Innovation Award, acknowledging that the company is at the cutting edge of emerging technologies. Gamber-Johnson has been nominated as Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year eight times, winning a special award for Outstanding Customer Relations in 2019. Gamber-Johnson has also received the J.P. Leggett Innovator Award from Leggett & Platt, in addition to being named a “Workplace of Distinction” by Corporate Report Wisconsin.

Gamber-Johnson’s dedication to producing products that are rugged, reliable, and responsive is unparalleled. The Gamber-Johnson name has become synonymous with high quality, rugged products that can withstand even the most extreme situations. These products are guaranteed and reliable, hand tested for perfect performance every single time. With a strong focus on customer service, the Gamber-Johnson brand is responsive: offering custom-designed solutions, lightning-fast production and shipping, and working directly with technology partners to ensure the optimum fit, every time.

Joyful Growth

Our purpose and reason for being

Gamber‐Johnson's mission statement is purposely simplistic, yet discretely sophisticated at the same time. These two words, Joyful Growth, reflect what our company sets out to achieve every day. There are four areas of our business that our mission statement is particularly meaningful for:

  • People ‐ Our people are at the heart of everything we do; without them, our primary purpose of providing superior value to our customers is impossible! Through our purpose’s successful execution, we deliver growth opportunities for all individuals along the value chain, including our employees, customers, partners, and suppliers.
  • Products ‐ New and innovative products are the lifeline for future growth. In being responsive to our customers' needs we aim to develop products that meet and exceed their expectations.
  • Profits ‐ Our customers must profit from the use of our products. By providing our customers with the best experience and value in the industry, the profits needed to be a self‐sustained and progressive company will be inherent
  • Principles ‐ The foundation for our company is the principles by which we conduct business. Only by operating under impeccable standards may we earn our employees’ and customers' highest level of approval; their trust.

Our Guiding Principles

Our Cause: "Supporting technology to help save the world."

  1.  Be transparent in all our dealings.
    We cannot always disclose everything to everyone but we will always disclose what we can and assure that it is enough for a stakeholder to make informed decisions.
  2.  Always do the right things in the right ways.
    If it is the right thing to do, we will do it. We will not trade off short term benefit if it harms or may potentially harm the future. No compromises on safety or quality. Honor all commitments. Treat everyone fairly.
  3. Empower every employee to contribute in their own best way to Gamber's success.
    We will provide opportunities for employees to grow with the company, to enhance their skillset and to contribute meaningfully.
  4. Operate ethically, beyond reproach.
    We will never take any action which could be seen by any stakeholder as unethical.
  5. Foster more collaboration and teamwork.
    We will strive to reach consensus where possible and to empower teams at each level of the organization to act within these guidelines to further our Cause.
  6. Strive to always create value and eliminate waste.
    Value creation is the key to winning customers and acting lean.
  7. Maintain unerring customer focus and responsiveness.
    Without customers, we have nothing. Focusing on and responding to customers’ needs is paramount.
  8. Be goal‐oriented and farsighted.
    Using metrics where possible, we will measure progress towards goals and will react definitively and quickly to close any gaps. Keep sight of the big picture ‐ don't sacrifice long term gains or create long term problems for short term benefits.
  9. Be an employer of choice.
    Through executing Joyful Growth and abiding by these guidelines, we will be an employer of choice.
  10. Positively contribute to our community.
    We will contribute to the community as a good employer, donor to important causes and by supporting our employees in their volunteer activities.
  11. Foster innovation and embrace change in all phases of Gamber.
    Going beyond products, we must innovate in all aspects of the organization or the world will pass us by. Change opens opportunity. Resistance to change brings stagnation and obsolescence.
