Corporate Responsibility

At Superior Tube we manufacturer precision metal tubes products which play a crucial role for customers in the aerospace, nuclear, oil and gas, power generation and medical equipment industries. We are a friendly company with a supportive atmosphere and a reputation for innovation. Superior Tube is a progressive organization, where best practice is always encouraged.

While our tube mill aims to produce metal tubes that meet the exact needs of customers, and we work with a range of stakeholders on a daily basis, we feel that our responsibilities go far beyond business. We care about our customers, of course, but also our employees, local community and suppliers. In all our activities, it’s important to us that we trade ethically and protect the environment, while complying with US and local laws as well as international conventions.

Alongside supplying high quality precision tubes to engineering companies around the world, we aim to meet our social responsibilities and to eliminate the effects our work has on the environment.

We have systems and procedures in place to ensure that we meet our corporate responsibilities, and regularly review our activities with that goal in mind. Our senior management team meets to set targets with SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound) objectives, and reviews how well we’ve achieved objectives set in previous meetings.

Superior Tube has important values and aspirations in a number of critical areas:

Customers

  • We are open and honest with our customers.
  • We make products that meet the requirements specified by our customers, as well as industry recognized production standards.
  • We recognize that Superior Tube can only be successful if our customers are successful.

Suppliers

We have Supplier Approval and Assessment Processes in place that ensure all our suppliers source materials, manufacture and transport Superior Tube products in a safe and responsible manner. Our Supplier Code of Conduct complies with internationally recognized standards aiming to advance social and environmental responsibility.

We encourage compliance with the laws, rules and regulations in the countries where our suppliers operate. This includes areas such as labor and human rights, health and safety, environmental impact, ethics, and management commitment.

  • Treat our employees fairly, with reasonable hours and fair pay.

The Local Community

Superior Tube operates within a community, and we ensure that our activities have no detrimental impact on the quality of life there. We support local charities with donations from both employees and the company. Superior Tube offers work placements to young people, and sponsors engineering-based presentations in local schools, which include information about career prospects.
