I have come to a very weird situation, where one of a dozens of macs (combination of iMacs, MacBooks and MBPs) doesn't list company wireless network. The affected machine list other networks in the same time (the other wifi network is a same type - WPA Personal)
I tried to turn on/off Airport, restart machine several times and remove "known networks" from the Airport Advanced list.
I faced the situation after a change of shared key on the Airport Base Station. The SSID is broadcasted and I'm able to connect to the network from the mentioned iMac using Other Networks option.

Open the Keychain Access utility (found in /Applications/Utilities) and remove all references to the company network.
