Our Vision

Our Vision

Be an inspiration.

To be the preferred global partner for material technology and garment innovation, we have to recognize and address the challenges in our industry, from environmental to giving people a place to grow and delivering great products and services. Our vision reflects our six principles: inspire creativity, excellence, kindness, curiosity, responsibility, and effort.

Our Principles

Inspire Kindness.

Do it for others.

Inspire Kindness.

We build the environment we work in together with respect and kindness to encourage motivation, happiness, and growth. We should take care of each other when dealing with people and the next generation who builds hope for our future.

Inspire Curiosity.

Question and learn.

Inspire Curiosity.

Curiosity is the desire to learn everything we can. We must embrace curiosity and be open to new ideas and technologies. Challenge ourselves and our perceptions to chart a better course, understand, grow, and innovate. Being wrong is also an opportunity to learn.

Inspire Creativity.

Collaborate and explore.

Inspire Creativity.

Creativity needs passion and collaboration to develop pioneering ideas. Intuition and diverse thinking lead to better results because great ideas can come from anyone. No matter their job, title, background or gender.

Inspire Effort.

Anything done right takes effort.

Inspire Effort.

Simple is not simple, it takes effort. We move fast to make an impact every day for our customers, employees, and the planet. It takes the right mindset to adapt and take on new and complex challenges.

Inspire Responsibility.

Responsibility earns trust.

Inspire Responsibility.

But safety first. We can fulfill our responsibilities ethically through disciplined, sustainable business practices. Everyone’s contribution is critical to our success. When there is a problem, it’s everyone’s problem. No excuses. Let’s fix it.

Inspire Excellence.

Do it better.

Inspire Excellence.

People of extraordinary passion are capable of rising to greatness. To become the preferred global partner for material technology and garment solutions, we must take a long-term view, set the highest standards, and do more with less. That is our pursuit of excellence.
