Customer Centric

Everything we do begins with actively listening and collaborating with our customers (internal and external). We strive to create inclusive environments for all to contribute and be heard. By understanding their challenges and aspirations, we proactively identify solutions that address their current and future needs.


We hold ourselves, and each other, accountable for delivering on our promises to our customers, suppliers, shareholders and colleagues to accomplish our combined goals. This accountability includes our commitment to evolving our actions to meet the growing needs of our customers, associates, and environment.


We treat others with dignity by seeking to understand each other’s experiences and celebrating our diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We act in an honest manner and maintain the highest level of integrity. Whether working with internal or external partners, we act as one team and always assume others have good intent.


We never settle for the status quo. We constantly strive to achieve the highest levels of safety, quality, and service. Our passion for continuous improvement is embodied by every employee, the results we achieve, and the exceptional support we provide to the industries we serve. We do our best when we welcome diverse perspectives and work collaboratively to find solutions.
