Our Strategy

At Hillenbrand, we seek to leverage our strong financial foundation and the Hillenbrand Operating Model to deliver sustainable profit growth, revenue expansion and free cash flow. In turn, we reinvest that cash in new growth initiatives for our existing businesses as well as in strategic acquisitions to drive profitable growth. The key enabler of our strategy is the Hillenbrand Operating Model.


We strive to provide superior return for our shareholders, exceptional value for our customers, and great professional opportunities for our people through deployment of the Hillenbrand Operating Model (HOM). The HOM is a consistent and repeatable framework designed to produce sustainable and predictable results. The HOM describes our mission, vision, values and leader’s mindset; uses our management practices in Strategy Management, Segmentation, Lean, Talent Development and Acquisitions; and prescribes three steps (Understand, Focus and Grow) to make our businesses both bigger and better. Our goal is to continue developing Hillenbrand as a world-class global diversified industrial company.
