Message from the President:
Greetings! 2013 is a special year for CPI because we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary. What a tremendous accomplishment for the company and our employees!
Bricks and mortar do not make a company. Dedicated hardworking employees make a company. Creative is blessed to be staffed by such employees. Most of our employees have celebrated 10, 20 and 30 year employment anniversaries. In fact, Alan Noel (hired March 26, 1973) and Bill Harclerode (hired April 9, 1973) are two of the original seven employees of CPI. The two have experienced a lot of change over their 40 years at CPI and have helped to make CPI what it is today. Thank you both for your dedication and service.
CPI will be introducing a new logo and corporate web site in recognition of this significant milestone. Dustin Troutman, Director of Marketing and Product Development, and Shawna Holler, Marketing Coordinator have worked diligently on this very instrumental project.
We are also proud to reiterate, and continue to reinforce, the core values that align our organization and drive our performance:
CREATIVE: technical innovation of products, processes & systems.
ACCOUNTABILITY: to customers, stockholders, employees, suppliers & the community.
STRONG WORK ETHIC: a dedicated, dynamic & flexible workforce.
HONESTY, TRUST & INTEGRITY: follow The Golden Rule.
We have a lot to be thankful for here at Creative Pultrusions. I am certain our employees and their teamwork are the reason CPI has been, and will continue to be, a leader in the pultrusion industry. It is because of their dedication to meeting our customers’ expectations and their respect for CPI’s core values, that we are so respected and coveted in this competitive industry. I am certain our next 40 years will be filled with additional opportunities to excel.
