According to historical records of the Canadian plumbing industry, only 300 bathtubs were sold in Canada between 1930 and 1936. As a result, Empire Manufacturing found ways to build high quality products more efficiently in order to survive the Great Depression. The company continued to prosper during and after the two World Wars by reinventing itself to focus on sales, believing that it was more important to create loyal customers than to take orders - this is still a guiding principle at EMCO today.
EMCO is founded on strong core values, which impact how we act and the decisions we make every day. "Do the right thing," is a fundamental belief shared throughout the organization and is integral to our success in building strong customer relationships that withstand the test of time.
Fairness and Caring
Doing the right thing and being committed to the success of others. Showing others by our words and actions that we genuinely care about them personally and professionally.
Trust and Respect
Acting with integrity and leading by example. Always doing what we say we are going to do. Being trusting and respectful of others.
Listening carefully and deeply to ensure we fully understand each other. Being open to new ideas. Suspending our judgments in a way that encourages others to share their opinions and allows us to hear what others are truly saying.
Respectfully saying the things we really mean in a timely manner and in the spirit of fairness and support of others. Providing feedback and being committed to having the conversations that are needed.
