Our Culture and Values

“Help the Industry, and We Help Ourselves. Serve the Customer, On Time with a Fair Price and World Class Quality.” The phrase has been the founding and guiding principle of MacLean-Fogg.

We believe in entrepreneurship. It was entrepreneurial spirit that led John MacLean, Sr. and Jack Fogg to found the company in 1925. It is that same entrepreneurial spirit that has guided the company’s growth and success for over 90 years.

We are value creators. Our mission is to create value for our customers, our shareholders, our employees and the communities where we do business. We are proud that over 3500 associates have chosen to build their careers with us, over 2000 in the United States.  

We make things. We take tremendous pride that the products we manufacture, make our customer’s lives better. From our smallest locknut to our largest ultra-high voltage hollow core insulators, our products positively impact billions of lives every day.  We are a market share leader in nearly every area where we compete. 

We are a family business. The MacLean-Fogg family includes each of our global associates. We treat all people with equality and with respect. We create workplace culture that stresses respect, openness, personal growth and entrepreneurship.  We listen to all voices.  We put 100% support behind all our decisions, even the 52%/48% decisions.

We believe in education.  We invest in the educating and training of our employees to assure that the company and our employees all remain competitive and our best.  We believe we are only as good as our weakest link.

We improve every day. Continuous improvement is part of our culture at MacLean-Fogg.  It is our goal to have the most productive factories in the world.  We strive to improve productivity, quality and costs year over year to assure that our factories remain world class and the preferred suppliers to our customers.

The keys to our success are the engagement of our dynamic and adaptive employees, along with the MacLean-Fogg entrepreneurial culture. Our Goals are supported by a robust performance management process, and commitment to operational excellence. Through our “Commitment to Excellence”, we will achieve the growth and profitability that will fuel our continued success.

These basic principles are fundamental to MacLean-Fogg’s success:

  • People are our most important resource: Employee development, involvement and teamwork provide our strength and vitality. We must create a culture that stresses respect, openness, personal growth and entrepreneurship.
  • Safety and environmental consciousness is a prime objective: We are citizens of the earth and have a responsibility to put forward our best efforts to preserve and protect our personal and collective quality of life.
  • Customers are the focus of everything we do: Our work must always be done with the goal of anticipating and satisfying our customer’s needs.
  • Quality is a main priority: Our products and services must always be the very best attainable. As our products and services are seen, so are we evaluated.
  • Continuous improvement is our way of life: We must strive for ongoing improvement focusing on increased efficiency and the prevention of errors.
  • Integrity is never compromised: Our conduct must command respect for its integrity and for its positive contributions to society.
