Core Values

Our Core Values

At APW, we use our core values to define our priorities in how we choose to show up in business, with our team, customers, and communities.

OHANA

We view our community and team as a family, and we think and act in ways that reflect this. No one is more important than another, and each person is an integral part in creating success. We look for ways to support one another in the field and office, and treat each other with respect.

OWNERSHIP

We take pride and ownership of our work. From the leadership team to the newest employee, we own our actions. We strive to operate from the knowing that we cannot always control every situation, but we can control how we plan and choose to show up.

ADVANCEMENT

We strive for excellence and champion each individual team member’s growth. We are committed to advancing together, through ongoing education, training, and other opportunities to better ourselves. We also promote advancement in our industry worldwide by participating in code and standard development, education programs and collaboration with other leaders.  

UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF REPUTATION

Always be aware of our actions on and off the jobsite. Uphold our commitment to efficiency, detail, service, and quality, and know that consistency over time builds and sustains reputation.

HUMBLY CONFIDENT

We don’t just tell, we show. We believe in our team and abilities, and we exhibit that we’re the industry’s best through our actions and applied knowledge.
