Our Purpose and Values

Lean on us to help you make life better


We think and act like owners.

For 160 years we have been waking up every day to help make life better. We are driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and an ownership mindset, inspiring us to care deeply about our neighbors and shared planet. We have a bias for action, take accountability and quickly bounce back from setbacks.

We are committed to making our customers successful.

We pride ourselves on innovation, and we aim to operate in a clear, straightforward fashion. We aspire to be connected for life with our customers and embrace the responsibility that comes with that. We know they lean on us for essential, vital and mission critical solutions.

We are bold in our aspirations while moving forward with humility and integrity.

We have the confidence to take on the hardest problems, yet we are rooted in a genuine sense of humility. We endeavor to earn trust every day by being honest in our dealings and acting with integrity regardless of how hard the challenge. We speak with candor, own our mistakes and always strive to be better tomorrow.

We foster inspired teams.

We nurture and celebrate a culture that embraces diverse points of views, backgrounds and experiences. We are committed to equity in how people are treated and the opportunities available to them. And we know that a workplace which cultivates a sense of inclusion, belonging and respect will develop the most talented and capable employees.
