This mission is furthered by our Core Beliefs, values which have been integral to our culture since the company’s founding. Firm commitments to employee dignity, safety and well-being; continuous innovation; and integrity and ethical behavior guide our business wherever we operate throughout the world.

These Core Beliefs are at the root of our Corporate Citizenship initiatives and codified in the company’s Code of Conduct.

With a passion for innovation and collaborative problem solving, we actively work in partnership with our customers to minimize risk and deliver value with highly reliable solutions. To support our strategic priorities and grow sustainably, we focus on investing in people and technology.

  • Talent & Culture - We realize that our innovative ideas and products come from our people, our most important asset. That is why investing in, supporting, and fostering talent is paramount to the success of LORD.
  • Investment in Technology - We have a commitment to continually be innovative. This is why we annually invest 8-10% of sales in technology.
  • Diversity of Knowledge and Experience - The ability to transfer knowledge and expertise from one application to a new customer challenge is a core strength and benefit to our customers.

Throughout our history, LORD has been first to market with disruptive technologies that render our customers' products safer, more efficient, and higher-performing.

A central element of the LORD culture is an unwavering commitment to quality and continuous improvement. This was a keystone value of our founder, Hugh Lord, and continues today as one of the core values around which we conduct business. 

We define quality as consistently exceeding customer and coworker needs and expectations. It is our priority to continually monitor and improve our processes as a means to ensure overall customer satisfaction and enable profitable growth. As a global corporation providing long-term value across worldwide industries, we are committed to quality in everything we do, every day.
