Armstrong's Guiding Principles

Armstrong Steel Corporation is committed to remaining the world's premier steel building OEM manufacturer. To that end, we must continuously achieve superior financial and operating results while simultaneously adhering to high ethical standards.

The following principles guide our relationships with our suppliers, customers, employees, and communities:

SuppliersArmstrong Steel Corporation is committed to developing and maintaining effective professional relationships with our suppliers as we strongly believe this is an essential element of best practice and ultimately in the provision of quality products and services. By purchasing goods and services in-country and developing long-term supplier relationships, Armstrong supports the development of the local business community. Our presence has a multiplier effect, as our capital and operating expenses generate direct income for local suppliers and contractors as well as indirect payments to their vendors. As a result, local workers have higher disposable incomes, leading to increased consumer spending and greater national income. As the capacity of local suppliers continues to expand, we are increasing the amount and value of work executed within our borders. This commitment drives the management of Armstrong.

Customers - Success depends on our ability to consistently satisfy ever changing customer preferences. We are committed to remaining innovative and responsive, while offering only the highest quality steel buildings and services at competitive prices. We are committed to helping our clients realize their full potential. We strive to be in the best position to accelerate new technologies as they emerge and to better serve our customers.

Employees - The exceptional quality of our workforce provides a valuable competitive edge. To build on this advantage, we will strive to hire and retain the most qualified people available and to maximize their opportunities for success through training and development. We are committed to maintaining a safe work environment enriched by diversity and characterized by open communication, trust, and fair treatment.

Communities - We commit to be a good corporate citizen in all the places we operate worldwide. We will maintain high ethical standards, obey all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and respect local and national cultures. Above all other objectives, we are dedicated to running safe and environmentally responsible construction operations.

Armstrong Steel Corporation aspires to be at the leading edge of competition in every aspect of our business. That requires the Corporation's resources — financial, operational, technological, and human — to be employed wisely and evaluated regularly. While we maintain flexibility to adapt to changing conditions, the nature of our business requires a focused, long-term approach. We will consistently strive to improve efficiency and productivity through learning, sharing, and implementing best practices. We will be disciplined and selective in evaluating the range of capital investment opportunities available to us. We aspire to achieve our goals by flawlessly executing our business plans and by adhering to these guiding principles.
