Our guiding principle is to treat those with whom we come in contact-our customers, our associates, our shareholders, our suppliers, and our communities-the same way we would expect to be treated in similar circumstances.
To deliver fully on our commitments by providing superior value through innovation, creativity, and personal attention, thus meeting or exceeding every customer's expectations.
To provide everyone with opportunities for meaningful challenges, empowering them to achieve and be rewarded in an atmosphere of total trust and respect, thus becoming a model for teamwork and open communications throughout our organization.
To achieve long-term profitability and growth that yields returns that meet or exceed those that our shareholders could achieve through alternative business investments.
To treat our suppliers fairly and forthrightly, to fully live up to our agreements, and to develop solid and stable long-term relationships.
To actively support our communities through individual and corporate involvement and to achieve respect and admiration for our integrity, commitment, insight, and progressiveness.
To be committed to excellence by living each of these values every day.
