WELCOME TO SIMONDS!
are glad you have become one of us and we will do all we can to
make you feel at home.
We want you to join with us in meeting the
obligations that we believe are most important to the progress
and well-being of us all:
First, there is the obligation to the customer.
After all he is the real Boss. We must supply him with the
finest Simonds products that research, design, efficient
manufacturing methods and good individual workmanship can turn
out. By meeting this obligation squarely, we can sell profitably
at competitive prices and our customers will continue to buy and
use our products regularly.
Second, there is the obligation to you, the
individual member of our organization. We believe firmly that
you should have a desirable place to work, efficient tools and
helpful supervision. We believe that your employment should be
as steady as it is within our power to make it.
We believe in such advantages ae Group Life
Insurance, a Retirement Plan, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and
other benefits that will be explained later in this booklet. We
believe firmly in good wages for good work.
Thirdly, there is the obligation to the Company
itself. This ties in closely with the obligation to each worker
in the organization. It is only when the Company is strong and
healthy… earning a profit and providing a return for the
investors who have put their money into the business… that the
capital is available to buy the buildings, tools and equipment
to make more Simonds products, create new jobs and
opportunities, and make all jobs better and more secure.
These obligations are met by each of us working
earnestly at his job, and by all of us working together with a
spirit of willing cooperation.
