Statement of Operating Philosophy
Bradford Supply Company is a private investor-owned enterprise.
As such, we believe we have the obligation to operate in a profitable
manner and, in so doing, to use the highest ethical standards of
conduct and prudent business practices.
We recognize our responsibility to the communities and the states
in which we operate and whose citizens – customers we serve.
We believe ourselves to be socially responsible and responsive,
not just because of altruism, but because it is good business, and
recognize that our success is in direct proportion to the success
of the customers we serve.
In the conduct of our business, we have the following goals:
To provide the very best products and services to meet the present
and future needs of our customers.
To creative a dynamic organization in which our employees are hired,
promoted and compensated, solely on the basis of job performance
without regard to race, sex, religion, age, disability, or nationality.
To make positive contributions to causes and organizations that
strengthen the community in which we live and work through the use
of Bradford’s resources, whether they be monetary or through
the personal involvement of directors, officers, and employees.
Our commitment is toward the presentation of a viable, free enterprise
system in an open, democrative society.
