What inspires us

Goodwill is never negotiable, in family, in business or in products. Since our founding in 1886, SCJ has been guided by our commitment to keep earning the goodwill of the people around us. It matters to us that we do right by employees, consumers, the public, our communities and the world at large, and treat everyone with integrity and respect. These are our values and principles.

The sincerity of our beliefs encourages us to act with integrity at all times, to respect the dignity of each person as an individual human being, to assume moral and social responsibilities early as a matter of conscience, to make an extra effort to use our skills and resources where they are most needed, and to strive for excellence in everything we do.

We safeguard these beliefs by remaining privately held. We are not beholden to Wall Street. Rather, we are fully committed to the people who make, use and benefit from our products. We believe we can earn profits and remain true to our principles. This way, we make a positive impact today and for generations to come.

Executive management comment

We approach decisions as if the consequences will be sitting down with us at the family dinner table for years to come. This means that for five generations, we’ve been able to take the high road :

To do what’s right, even if no one is watching. 

To consider the impact of every choice, far beyond its immediate marketplace effects. 

To make life better for the next generation in the ways only a family company can. 

And we can do this because we don’t answer to the whims of the stock market or the trends of the day. As a family company, we answer to our children and their children yet to come.
