As a company, Afton is continually looking to the future. But the values that we hold closely – and which contribute greatly to our success – are as simple and timeless as they are important. And while some companies train their people to work this way, we simply hire people who already live their lives by these values. Respect for People
Achieving our vision depends entirely on the ability of Afton’s people to contribute individually and collectively, to develop new skills, to work in an environment that fosters pride and to share in the contributions they make toward the success of the company. This success requires a culture that makes it possible for Afton’s people to achieve full potential. Such a culture is based on mutual trust and respect.
Personal and corporate integrity are the foundations for all we do. Integrity is a cherished possession we want never to lose.
Continually Improving Quality
Quality means satisfying customers' needs now and in the future. To do this, we must continually improve the quality of everything we make or do.
Our Partners - Customers and Suppliers
To be at the top of customers' lists, we must become their partners. This means we must share their business goals, champion their interests and link our resources to theirs in anticipation of their future needs. We need and will encourage the partnership of our suppliers in support of our customers' needs and goals as well.
Safety and Environmental Responsibility
It is Afton's goal to provide workplaces for employees that are safe, healthy and environmentally sound. Likewise, our presence in communities will not adversely affect the safety, health or environment of our neighbors. Finally, we will participate in ongoing activities, like Responsible Care®, that improve the health, safety and environment of the world.
We intend to be good citizens wherever we have a presence throughout the world. Good citizens do more than simply comply with laws; they support causes that help to improve the community. We will support such causes as a corporation and encourage Afton’s people to take active roles in answering community needs.
To realize this vision, Afton must be an economically viable and profitable organization. As we operate according to our vision and values, Afton will enjoy long-term growth with continually improving performance.
