As a family business for over 110 years, we carry our family values into our work. While all our business units operate autonomously, they share a common mission and commitment.
Our mission is to use our metallurgy know-how to provide critical materials and engineered solutions.
We create superior value for our stakeholders—our customers, our team members, our community, and our shareholders. We commit:
To our customers: To maintain our world-class performance standard. This means providing the best value to our customers over the long term. We further pledge to meet customer quality and delivery expectations, to devote the resources required for continuous product development and process improvement, and to work collaboratively with our customers to be long term partners and the supplier of choice.
To our team members: To treat our team members with dignity and respect, to provide for ongoing education and training, to maintain a safe work environment, to provide opportunities for team members to use their talents in ways that contribute to their professional growth and to our continued success, and to promote the diversity and inclusion of all team members.
To our community: To maintain the highest ethical and business conduct standards, to be good environmental stewards going above and beyond our strict environmental responsibilities, and to encourage employer/employee participation in community activities.
To our shareholders: To provide a superior return on shareholders’ equity compared to other heavy manufacturers in America; to continue focusing upon our core business of critical materials and engineered solutions; to maintain a long-term orientation that balances risk with rewards and sustainability; to continue to grow through entrepreneurial activity; and to maintain private ownership as it is in the best interests of our company, team members, and customers.
Our employees are our most valuable asset. To support our family at work and their families at home, we view workplace safety as more than a priority; it is a value.
ELLWOOD is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethical and business conduct. Simply put, we do business the right way.
Asking “Is it profitable?” is not enough. For us, the question is, “Is it right?”
