Rob Palmer founded Sigma Packaging, now SIGMA Equipment, in 2003 in an office above his garage in Evansville, IN with the mission of connecting customers and equipment. When Patrick Johnson joined Sigma in 2004, he helped Rob take his vision high tech by developing software and web applications to market and sell packaging and processing equipment to customers around the globe.
Sigma Packaging was rebranded to SIGMA Equipment in 2015 to reflect the wide variety of equipment solutions we offer our customers. Since that time, the SIGMA team has expanded to more than 40 amazingly talented employees. From that small office above the garage to our current set of warehouses, totaling a half million square feet of space, we were named to Inc Magazine’s 2015 list of 5000 Fastest Growing Companies. We believe our fast-paced, yet casual, team-oriented environment makes SIGMA Equipment one of the best places to work in Evansville!
We believe in creating strong relationships across teams. We are passionate about creating vibrant experiences for ourselves in our work and our work space. Our experiences and relationships give us the tools to best serve our customers and each other in beneficial and impactful ways.
Our employees have the opportunity to learn and grow with the organization. We encourage our employees to take on challenging assignments and roles, sharing in our entrepreneurial spirit. With weekly training meetings, regular trips to trade shows, site visits, and other employee resources, we provide our employees with the tools they need to move themselves and the company forward. We enable employees to take on new roles and explore different areas of the company based on their interest and strengths.
While we expect a lot of hard work, we also like to have fun! We let our competitive spirits run wild with cornhole tournaments, dodgeball games, Halloween costumes, weight loss and physical activity competitions, and other good-natured events planned by our active and creative social committee! We celebrate birthdays, holidays, and milestone events together as a work family.
