Our Mission in Action

We develop and deliver innovative and environmentally responsible products to our customers. We emphasize environmental stewardship, sound financial management and operational efficiency, while fostering a positive and sustainable workplace for our employees. We serve the communities in which we live and work with hands-on involvement through volunteerism and other charitable causes. And, we provide philanthropic support with the overarching goal of inspiring students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math, so they will one day help us fulfill our mission as future employees or customers.

Each is inextricably linked with our operations and aligned with our values — Integrity, Intensity, Innovation and Involvement. Together our investments in technology, products and people help to ensure a sustainable and profitable future for coming generations.
