In support of our basic mission, we maintain operating philosophies and policies concerning those issues which are fundamentally important to ensuring our long-term prosperity. These philosophies and objectives are articulated as follows:

Health, Safety and Environment

The health and safety of our employees is our first priority. We expect and demand that our employees consider their safety and health of utmost importance. We will continue to operate our business in a manner that actively promotes the health and safety of both our employees and our community. We recognize that this is a long-term commitment which will require continual improvement to our operating practices as advances are made in health, safety and environmental science.

Quality

Quality means meeting the current and long-term needs of our customers, our employees, our community, and the Company. We recognize that we will only achieve this using the collective resources of all our employees. To this end, we will endeavour to create and maintain a creative and harmonious atmosphere in which employees are proudly associated with the Company.

Productivity

Because productivity improvement is vital to our competitiveness and survival, we will continue to invest in state-of-the-art facilities and systems and develop modern processes and procedures.  We consider the active involvement of all employees in innovating and focusing on results to be essential to be world-class.

In order to support the achievement of our goals, and to support continual improvement of our standards and practices, we have adopted ISO principals to guide the creation of an integrated management system to support our quality, health, safety and environmental systems, and to promote the successful application of the Kaizen process.

Profitability

We endeavour to produce profits at a level which will ensure that new funds are available to support growth and innovation.
