We strongly believe that a company is only as strong as its employees.  Our work culture is founded on investing in our employees’ ideas and efforts to provide the building blocks that breed success. This values-based culture relies on minimal layers of management, ease of collaboration, open communication and an entrepreneurial attitude of taking risks.

Innovation – We apply a creative, practical and solutions-oriented mindset to everything we do – whether we are creating a product or interacting with a customer, colleague, partner or vendor. We overcome perceived limits by innovative thinking. “I’ve always done it this way” is not a justifiable statement. 

Customer Focus We all must be customer oriented and aspire to offer the best solution to our customer’s problems. We listen to the customer’s needs and provide innovative solutions.

Leadership 

  • Market Leadership We pursue markets where we believe we can win and become the leader.  We are willing to invest in the resources and take the appropriate risks to do so.  If we can’t visualize a way to win, we won’t participate.
  • Personal Leadership Our success and growth depends on individuals who seek and accept responsibility.  We empower our people to make decisions and use their creativity to produce results.  We believe honest and ethical conduct is critical to our business success and customers, employees, shareholders, and suppliers deserve to be treated with mutual trust, honesty, and respect.

CommunicationWe believe well-informed people are more effective and make better decisions. Open and frequent communication is encouraged and practiced throughout the organization. Individuals are expected to voice their opinions, listen to and consider the opinions of others without regard for organizational boundaries or level, and bring their highest quality information to the discussion. While constructive dissent is encouraged, teamwork is essential. Once a decision is made, the team is expected to execute on it. 

Quality We exceed the highest standards of quality in each of our chosen markets. We each take individual responsibility for the results of our efforts.
