Our Guiding Principles are our roadmap.
They describe how we achieve our vision and reinforce our commitment to conducting our business with integrity.

Guiding Principle 01

Ethics and Integrity

A commitment to ethics and integrity in everything we do. Acting with ethics and integrity is central to how we conduct our business. We set high standards for ethical behavior and expect our employees to meet our standards and live our Guiding Principles, even under challenging circumstances. We expect all of our employees to be honest and transparent in conducting our business and to have the courage to do what is right.

Guiding Principle 02

A Commitment to Quality

We take pride in providing high quality safety products and services to our customers. We are committed to upholding quality standards set forth by our customers, industry groups, and governmental agencies. On a daily basis, we strive to improve our quality performance and maintain a continuous improvement mentality in everything we do.

Guiding Principle 03


We believe in accountability. Being accountable means that we take responsibility for our actions and the actions of our teams. When we have not acted in accordance with our standards and values, we will take action to promptly correct mistakes or inappropriate situations. Accountability is not about blame or fault; it means living up to our values, our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and our policies.

Guiding Principle 04

Speaking Up

We value a “Speak Up” environment. “Speaking Up” means asking questions so we can ensure that we are living up to the high standards that we set for ourselves and our business partners. We encourage our employees to “speak up” when they feel that the law or company policies may have been violated. By “speaking up” you are helping us protect our brand and reputation. We promote a culture where our employees feel comfortable raising issues or asking questions without fear of retaliation.

Guiding Principle 05

Product Safety

Product safety is our most important goal. The products that we make save lives. Each of us has an obligation to strive individually, and as a team, to work tirelessly to minimize the risk of injury and death due to traffic accidents. The safety of drivers and passengers guides us in all we do.

Guiding Principle 06

Workplace Safety

We strive to provide a safe and healthy work environment for our employees, contractors, suppliers, and customers. We are committed to conducting our business in compliance with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations. Each of us is responsible for acting in a way that protects ourselves and others.
