One of the things our employees appreciate most about working here is our operating principles. They define our way of doing business…the way our founder insisted upon operating more than 150 years ago when he started this company. They include respect, a strong sense of camaraderie and family, a non-negotiable value system, and an unwavering commitment to each other’s safety. Bottom line, we believe in fairness, ethics, passion and teamwork, and doing the right thing every day for our stakeholders: employees, customers, neighbors or shareholders. It’s fundamental to who we are and how we operate.
We strive for a culture that balances individual achievement with teamwork and collaboration. We draw on each other’s strengths and allow for different work styles to build employee engagement and satisfaction and deliver results. You can stretch yourself here, and extend beyond personal, and geographic, boundaries to experience new people, cultures, places and ideas. We have big initiatives and projects underway now and on the horizon, and we’re always looking for the right people to join our extraordinary global team.

Our Products Make a Difference
Our ceilings, walls and suspension systems do amazing things that might inspire you to think quite differently about your surroundings, and your career. You ready?
Did you know our acoustical ceilings help “control sound?” Well they absolutely do, and do you know what that means in people’s lives? Big things. When classrooms are less noisy, students can hear the teacher better, so, guess what? They learn better. Quieter healthcare facilities feel less stressful so patients can rest easier and heal faster. Makes sense, right? In offices, it’s proven less perceived chaos, aka noise, helps concentration and focus, so employees can work more effectively. Sound control goes a long way in countless settings, and we love how we can contribute to that.
But we don’t stop with acoustics. We build fire and seismic performance into our ceilings, and that helps make buildings and the people in them, safer. Plus, we work very hard to minimize the impact our products and operations have on the planet; we strive every day to reduce the environmental footprint we leave behind for future generations. The best example of that is our ceiling recycling program. We were the first to recycle ceilings, and since we started that program almost two decades ago, we’ve recycled and reclaimed millions of square feet of ceiling tiles that have gone back into new ceilings instead of winding up in landfills.
