Our culture can be summed up in one word, Respect.
Respect for our Customers is evidenced by the partnerships we have developed with our customers based on, among other things, our unwavering commitment to quality and our focus on a superior customer service experience.
Respect for our employees is seen in our competitive wages, generous benefits, the way we interact with each other, and our insistence on a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that is a safe and healthy work environment. We strive for a true family feel in our company. We collaborate with each other, listen to each other, and act on each other’s suggestions. Our credo: “Career Long Opportunities for Talented Employees who Share our Values” captures the spirit of the employee experience at SMP.
Respect for our heritage is best seen in the fact that we are an ethics-driven company. From its first days, the founding family has insisted on business practices that are ethical, transparent, fair and consistent throughout our organization. SMP, as a publicly traded company, has the same quarterly pressures as other companies, but our continuity of leadership gives us perspective to look at the long-term, not just to the next quarter. We take pride in our products; we take pride in our people; and we take pride in our culture.
Respect for our planet is seen through our commitment to providing solutions to promote a greener car parc, reducing our GHG emissions with the ambition of achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050, and reducing our environmental impact through efforts to reduce the generation of waste, increase the rate of recycled waste, and reduce the usage of energy and water.
