OUR PEOPLE

Here's What They Say

"I truly believe that Wieland Designs is one of the best places to work in Elkhart County. From Senior Management down, they care about people. It’s not just rhetoric; you can see they care about people in everything they do and how everyone treats each other. We have some very talented people who make beautiful and innovative products, and I am blessed to work with such talented, caring people."

Lisa
3 Years, Director of Sales

Wieland has been my home. I have been able to not just grow here but to grow-up here. The leadership team is a big reason I work here. They have given me the opportunity to experience many areas of the business and had the patience to allow me to learn along the way. It’s been a real blessing to work at a place that values the learning process and truly lives out the mission statement every day."
