Our Team

Quality. Teamwork. Customer Focus. Honesty & Integrity. These are the Core Values that drive our team every day and encompass what we call “Peiffer Pride.”

At Peiffer, we work together with one common goal: to represent the values of Peiffer Pride in all aspects of job performance. As stated right up front in the Peiffer Employee Handbook, it is each employee’s job to:

  • Serve as a representative of Peiffer Pride, A Spirit of Service Excellence, to all customers, vendors, and business partners.
  • Serve as a role model of Peiffer Pride to all Peiffer team members and co-workers.
  • Work to balance quality, productivity, cost, safety, and morale to achieve positive results in all areas.
  • Strive to continuously improve.
