What is your company’s vision for the future?

Our recent company Mantra & Mindset statement from June 2019 states, “our business family counts on ALL OF US”, inspiring all workers to know they and their work matters regardless of where they are in the company. Further, our Mindset statement “We are all Scouts” challenges all of us to proactively seek and push for continuous improvement in every aspect of business. This addition to our Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles provides further context and action by which we will make further positive societal and environmental impacts. New products in disciplines such saving people’s hearing by reducing mechanical noise pollution from industrial equipment in workplaces, generating less waste by extending the mean life expectancies of high-precision manufacturing systems in fabs, and realizing more re-use of manufacturing by-products through successful reconditioning are exciting outcomes of our passion for making the world a better place!
