All visitors will be required to go through a registration process before being granted access to our facilities, which should ideally be started in advance at the link below. Visitors will be issued badges at check-in, which must be worn at all times.
These guidelines are provided to make your visit to Baker Industries both productive and pleasant. We also want to ensure we provide a safe and secure environment for you and your information as well as for our people, property, and information. Please assist us in this effort by complying with our security requirements.
All visitors to our facilities will be screened and required to sign an agreement to maintain compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and export regulations that are administered by the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). To maintain compliance, we must ensure that controlled technologies or technical data are not inadvertently released to foreign nationals.
What is Export-Controlled Technology or Technical Data?
Technology is "Released" When:
Visitors refers to any non-Baker Industries employee. Common examples include visiting company representatives, students, researchers, or members of the media.
Will Visitors Include Non-U.S. Citizens?
All visitors will be asked to indicate their citizenship before being allowed access to our facilities. This will determine eligibility to participate in tours and other restricted activities. All visitors will be provided color-coded visitor tags so that it’s more readily apparent who cannot attend restricted areas or activities.
The person in charge of your visit will ensure that non-US visitors are escorted when visiting our facilities and are not given keys/keycards, combinations, passwords, or other access to facilities in which export-controlled work is being performed.
Restrictions on Involvement
It may be necessary to restrict non-US visitors from participating in particular activities that would expose them to export-controlled technology or technical data. Please keep in mind that the production floor of Plant 1, all of Plant 2, and all of Plant 4 are generally considered export-controlled areas, meaning that non-US visitors will not be able to participate in tours.
