Our Principles


Below are our core principles that guide our decisions and shape our interactions: 

BUILD WIN-WIN-WIN RELATIONSHIPS

Employees, suppliers, customers, communities, and owners must all win to be sustainable.

THE MORE BORING, THE BETTER

GENERATE SUCCESS THROUGH GROWTH

Sustainable growth involves adding value, rather than depleting resources.

BE EXTREMELY RELIABLE

We do what we say we’ll do, when we say we’re going to do it. Without exception.

OPERATE AUTHENTICALLY

Life is less complicated when you don’t have to remember who you are “supposed to be.” 

MAINTAIN HIGH INTEGRITY

Most decisions aren’t difficult with a commitment to doing the right thing.  

REMEMBER THAT EVERYTHING WORTH DOING IS HARD

Shallow relationships and quick fixes never pay off.

THE FUTURE IS MURKY

We don’t know what the future holds, so we keep debt low and relationships uncomplicated. 

THINK AND ACT LONG TERM

Doing what’s in the best long-term interests of the company and it’s employees simplifies and clarifies.
