Our Values

PEOPLE

We will promote and retain the best people by treating everyone with Honesty, Openness and Respect. We must create a fun, innovative atmosphere that encourages all of our people to work together as a team to deliver the best possible service to our partners. To do this, we will develop state of the art personal and professional training programs to nurture the development of our people and to help us become better contributors both to our company and the community in which we live and serve. We will become known as a great place to work and a “leading edge” employer that cares about its people.

SAFETY

We will not cause harm to people, property or the environment. Safety will take precedence over all operating priorities in every case. All of us will remember that there is no job so important that we cannot take the time and expend the effort to do it safely. There is no delivery so urgent, no repair so important or any task so demanding that it has to be done regardless of the risk.

SERVICE

We will become a provider of choice for our customers and one to which the rest of the Industry will be compared. We will maintain exemplary service, safety and environmental standards. We will become true “partners” with our customers such that they can confidently single source all of their needs with us. To do this, we will utilize modern, well maintained equipment and facilities of which we can be extremely proud. We will continuously personify and exemplify a quality company in all aspects so that our partners are proud to have our people and equipment on their property.

OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

We will continuously improve every aspect of our business. We will strive for a degree of stability within our processes that allows us to accurately predict the future. We have to believe that there is always a better way and we can never be satisfied with the status quo. To accomplish this, we will create an atmosphere that encourages new ideas, heralds successes, learns from failure and removes fear from the organization. We cannot be afraid to challenge “old style” practices and must constantly look for new opportunities. We will not allow ourselves to become stale and inflexible. This will ensure our company always remains vibrant and alive.
