We respect people and resources. This has been fundamental to our business since we began operations in 1950.


As a privately-owned company with global reach, we recognize our role – and our potential – to positively impact the communities and environments in which we operate.

We believe that all of our employees around the world deserve a fair wage and safe working conditions. We monitor and minimize the environment impact of our activities throughout the global supply chain. As an independent company, we believe that we are able to make the difference.


We are a member of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), which helps us audit and work with our suppliers to improve working conditions in their factories.
