BraunAbility Company Values

Our vision for an accessible world was built from the strength of our company creation and influenced by our bright future. By leaning on our company values, we develop our people, our products, and our services to a higher level – always looking to exceed expectations and industry standards.

Live Our Legacy 

Our founder Ralph Braun left us with five powerful lessons that lay the groundwork for our success today and in the future. To start, put the customer first, always. Don’t give excuses and never stop improving yourself or your work. Next, surround yourself with good people and trust them to lead you forward. And lastly, believe in your God-given ability. These five lessons hang on our walls for employees to pass by each day and they are a legacy that has woven itself into the very fabric of our company.

Do What’s Right

What is right is not always what is easy. But at BraunAbility, we are
willing to put in the time, effort, energy, resources, and love to make our products and our services the best. We do what is right with humility, knowing you can always place your trust in our hands. 

Celebrate Our People

Great things are created with great teams. We display genuine care and respect for our employees who understand that the BraunAbility organization is a family first and a company second. We are committed to creating a workplace in which every member is encouraged to achieve his or her best self. 

Serve as a Champion

We are passionate about our customers. Your wants and needs come first when we approach new projects. BraunAbility looks outside of our four manufacturing walls to discover ways in which we can serve beyond just our
product offerings to champion our customers and strengthen the communities in which we live and work. 

Drive Innovation 

As BraunAbility continues to grow well into the future, we evolve, yet we never forget that our company was founded on a pillar of innovation. We will continuously pursue advancements and breakthroughs that enable us to reach more people and change more lives.
