Focused on You - A Message from B&W CEO Leslie Kass

October 08, 2018

All of us at The Babcock & Wilcox Company share in the responsibility and honor of continuing a legacy that has endured more than 150 years.

Our first patent in 1856 laid the groundwork for a company built on finding innovative solutions to important challenges of the day. We’re the company Thomas Edison praised for supplying the best and safest equipment, which he used throughout his laboratory. We’re the company that powered the first electric utility in America, first marine boiler for the U.S. Navy, first subway system, and a host of other important firsts. Today, more than 17,000 patents later, we continue our legacy by upholding our core values and designing and delivering innovative solutions for our customers with agility and perseverance.

With a solid portfolio of proven energy and environmental technologies, we help plant operators extend the life of their equipment with parts and service of unparalleled quality. We provide highly effective environmental equipment to reduce emissions and protect our earth. We design and supply innovative technology to divert waste from landfills and use it to generate heat, cooling and power. We’re focused on delivering value to our customers as promised, every time.

We are part of an industry where only the strong survive. We know that the qualities that make us strong – that have always made us strong – are the passion and ingenuity of our people, the superiority of our technology, and the trust that you, our customers, have in both.  Our commitment to serving you with the quality and integrity you expect from us, and that we demand of ourselves, hasn’t changed. We remain focused on you.
