Strategic Framework

Our corporate goals, although simple, set us apart: We want to be the Brand of Choice for the end user of our products; the Supplier of Choice for our distributor and utility customers; the Employer of Choice for our employees; and the Investment of Choice for our shareholders.

To help us achieve these goals, we are intensely focused on Innovation, Service and Quality. We have created a culture where every employee shares the responsibility for customer satisfaction.

These goals are further supported by six corporatewide evergreen Strategic Initiatives:

·        Growth: Organic and through acquisitions
