Values to Enable the Full Release of Human Possibility
At all of our locations around the world, we share the same three values of Safety, Excellence and Respect. These values of standard behavior are of paramount importance as we seek to maximize personal possibility, achieve excellence and establish open, creative work environments with the highest safety standards in the industry.
“Let’s imagine a future company that we can create together.
I believe we would start with a noble purpose. It would be about people and be grounded in a belief in the enormous potential that everyone has. In fact, the purpose would be ‘the full release of human possibility’.”
- Steve E. Macadam, President and Chief Executive Officer, EnPro Industries
World-class Standards in Safety, Excellence and Respect
As an EnPro Industries company, GGB’s deep-rooted culture of safety places a relentless focus on creating a secure, healthy work environment for all. A core value of GGB, safety is critically essential at all levels of business in order to achieve our goal of having the safest employees in the industry. As our safety performance continuously improves, we believe that through leadership commitment and by following a well-defined, proactive safety process, every accident can be prevented.
GGB Sučany, Slovakia is a testament to our values of employee safety. Receiving the “Safe Enterprise” award in 2011, the plant was selected as one of Slovakia’s 10 safest companies based on the facility’s health and safety management system as well as its level of achievement within the company.
A world-class organization is built by being the best in everything at all levels of business, with excellence existing throughout the company in all positions and functional areas. Our world-class manufacturing plants are certified in quality and excellence in the industry according to ISO 9001, TS 16949, ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001, allowing us to access the industry’s best practices while aligning our quality management system with global standards.
At GGB, we aim for excellence each and every day, whether it be in customer service, product manufacturing, business processes and practices or innovation. Excellence at GGB is particularly acknowledged by one of our most demanding markets: Aerospace.
