Why We Do What We Do

What makes a company more than just another place to work? For starters, it must have a clear purpose that underlies why it was founded and why it exists today. For us, this means staying true to the ideals established by Peter Callanan in 1883: to make people’s lives better.

We believe in ensuring the long term success of our company and its employees. We believe in continuing the Callanan family legacy, something that we have all helped to strengthen in our short time here. We recognize that the contributions from our employees have made our company what it is today.
