At LORD Corporation, our Mission is to transform innovative ideas into long-term value for our customers, employees, and shareholders. Our nearly 90 years in business has depended on our ability to innovate and our commitment to operating with complete integrity. Our people and the communities where we operate are the bedrock of our innovation, and the reason why our vision of corporate sustainability starts with the company's core values.
Accordingly, LORD is committed to compliance with legal standards applicable to our business worldwide, and demands similar commitments from our suppliers, distributors and strategic partners.
