Our mission and vision
Across our many brands and subsidiaries, our mission is simple and clear
To provide high-quality products that help our clients work more effectively. This ambition is underpinned by an unwavering commitment to innovation that courses through every department and every process – from product research and development, through to distribution process, waste management, distribution, customer service, end-user installation and everything in between.
Our vision for Rawlplug and its subsidiaries is to continue to strengthen our organisation and our portfolio of brands. We aspire to the position of market leader and believe that central to fulfilling this aspiration is to develop and produce products that make our customers’ lives better. By improving the lives of our customers, we firmly believe that they will recommend and remain loyal to the Rawlplug brand.
While we have achieved significant success in Europe, we can still do more to strengthen our position – both in those markets where we are already present and also in high-potential emerging markets. All of the Rawlplug brands are aligned to a single vision of producing high-quality products that bring benefits to as many people as possible. By successfully making this vision a reality, we are confident that Rawlplug will be successful in achieving its strategic ambitions.
Rawlplug is guided by a core set of values and principles. These values guide us in the way we do business with our clients, distributors and business partners, and they also guide us in the way Rawlplug employees work together with each other. The Rawlplug values are:
With passion, we can achieve perfection. Our business and the market landscape will continue to evolve, but as long as we are passionate about what we do and how we do it, we can be confident in our ability to deliver products and solutions that help our clients, and help strengthen our brand and market position.
We believe in the value of collaboration – both internally (between employees, departments and subsidiaries) and also externally with our clients, end users, distributors and business partners. When we collaborate effectively, we bring our shared visions and goals closer to reality.
We work hard to foster a professional, inspiring environment for our people. Rawlplug employees are experts in their respective fields. By fostering a professional approach to work, career development and wellbeing, our people are better able to focus on their core tasks and the strategic goals of the company.
In order to achieve our strategic goals, we need to be effective; effective in our own operations and processes, and also in understanding what our clients and end users need to be more effective in their tasks. Our commitment to effectiveness and minimising waste drives every business process and every interaction inside and outside the company.
