Code of Conduct - Our Values and Standards

About Us Hero Space Image

Our values and standards are the basis of our success. They always have been. They always will be.

The people who use, recommend or prescribe our products have placed their trust in us. No matter how strong our reputation, we must re-earn that trust every day by practicing the values and standards that have guided this company for more than 100 years.

We work hard to make sure that the integrity of this company remains a priority for everyone of our employees - every day, at every level of our company. Our code of conduct, which we publish for employees under the title Our Values and Standards, helps to make sure that our employees understand what is expected of them, and provides guidance on business standards and practices. This is just one of the many ways that we continually reinforce the values on which this company was built.
