Our Values

360 ̊ HEALTH

As a family business, caring for one another is part of our mission. Creating a culture of 360-degree health means valuing and investing in the physical safety, as well as the physical and mental health, of our team.


At PSC we have team members, not employees. Working together as a team, towards a common goal, allows us to reach heights that are greater than what we could achieve alone. This requires trust, respect, healthy debate, and accountability.


We believe in fostering a culture of quality. This starts with hiring high-quality team members who demonstrate integrity, humility, and grit. Next, it requires investing in high-quality and innovative equipment while maintaining world-class systems and processes. The result is packaging that sets the bar for quality.


We recognize our responsibility to grow, adapt, and evolve for future generations. We do this by focusing on the sustainability of our team, business, and environment. We invest in the personal and professional growth of our team members through training, development, and education programs. We continuously invest in new technologies, equipment, and practices so that we can go where our customers grow. Lastly, we make decisions today, and set goals for the future, to minimize our impact on the planet.
