We believe in many things - and they're not just related to the bottom line. We believe in giving employees with initiative the freedom they need to do their jobs. In taking chances. Celebrating diversity. Holding true to a set of solid, respectable values.

We strongly believe in being a responsible member of the community, doing what we can to support our people in their efforts to make a difference both in and outside of the workplace.

Every company has its own "corporate culture". We think you'll find ours is one you actually want to work in.


At A-Korn Roller, our Core Values and Beliefs provide a solid foundation for everything we do. Because we place great emphasis on these values, our customers, shareholders, business partners and employees always know where we stand and what we stand for.

Integrity must not be compromised. Honest relationships and trust are essential for long-term business success. We deal fairly in all our business relations.

Customers are the essence of our business - why we exist. We work to satisfy our Customers' requirements and anticipate their expectations. To succeed, we must work with our Customers to help make them winners too.

We are nothing without our people. They are truly our most valuable resource. Our Associates possess imagination, skill and a desire to accomplish something of significance. Working as a team enables us to realize our full potential.

We are committed to providing our shareholders a fair return over the long term.

We recognize and accept our responsibility to the community, through acting as a good neighbor. We are committed to protecting the public, the environment and our natural resources by operating in a safe, reliable manner.

We have a culture that supports an atmosphere of mutual trust through open communication to ensure responsiveness in the marketplace.

Entrepreneurial Spirit
We maintain a corporate culture that values originality, invention and creativity, and that nurtures these qualities through openness and reverence for the entrepreneurial spirit.

Tolerance for Risk
We recognize the need to take risks - in deploying new technology and for investing in large capital projects. Risk is central to our culture and to our company's long term success. As a private company, we must be sensible in risk-taking, but aggressive in our overall posture.

Efficiency means the difference between success and failure. We relentlessly pursue a more efficient way to do everything we undertake, using quality management tools as one important guide.

Autonomy of Operating Units
The autonomy of operating units is important to promote focus, fast decision-making and ultimately commitment, which is essential for success. At the same time, cooperation must exist so that operating units work efficiently together and share ideas. Autonomy and entrepreneurial spirit go hand in hand.

Change is inevitable. We welcome change for the opportunities it offers, and must work to stay ahead of it.


Diversity encompasses multidimensional factors not limited to age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, religion, education, parental status, professional background and marital status.

Diversity represents a pattern of behaviors and attitudes that categorize an organization's cultural norms. Diversity supports an organizationŐs capacity to compete and manage change.

A-Korn Roller believes that attracting and retaining a talented workforce in which individuals are respected and valued for their contributions and their professional, cultural and life experiences is key to building a strong company.

A-Korn Roller seeks to create an environment where we effectively pursue a common business objective while respecting employees' individuality and dignity.

We appreciate individual identity as an organizational strength because it encourages creativity and allows us to be more competitive in our changing marketplace.

We attract, develop and retain people of diverse backgrounds to ensure our organization continues to be staffed with the best and brightest.

We provide advancement opportunities to employees who consistently add value to the company so that contributions and talents are identified and fully utilized.
