Letter from our President and CEO
I am proud to be part of an organization that has a long history of doing what is right. We strive to deliver industry leading solutions to our customers; support organizations that improve our communities; enhance our environmental, health and safety measures at our facilities; and provide opportunities for the growth and development of our employees.
Kaman has always operated with a sense of responsibility and it is with this in mind that we will begin to focus on the integration of sustainable business practices into all aspects of our organization. It is our belief that when integrated into a business strategy these practices improve the performance of a company and create long-term value. We will ground these sustainable practices in our core values of Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Creativity, and Honor. We strive to embody these values in all that we do. By combining the strength of our core values with sustainable practices we expect to enhance our business and provide long-term benefits to our investors, customers, employees, and communities.
We are just beginning our process of identifying what key measures and reporting on sustainability we will pursue. Looking ahead, we expect this process to evolve as we continue to refine these best practices and we look forward to sharing our progress with you in the future.
