The Jonti-Craft Mission Statement
We deliver safe, feature-rich, superior-quality children’s furniture for a lifetime of learning.®
What We Believe. Jonti-Craft’s philosophy is inspired by the men, women, and the community that helped build this company to where it is today. It is their uncompromising principles and work ethic that guide our actions. Their unwavering integrity, dedication to quality, commitment to personal service, and belief in a family-oriented approach to business is what helps shape our company and influences our relationships.
The answer is Yes! Yes to innovative, feature-rich classroom products. Yes to products that are safe for our children. Yes to rapidly responding to the unique demands of our customers. Yes to setting industry standards for flexible manufacturing and prompt delivery practices. Yes to quality construction, durability, function, and value. Yes to long-term relationships. But no to requests that compromise Jonti-Craft’s commitment to excellence.
Safety. Jonti-Craft’s commitment to building safe children’s furniture is apparent by our rounded edges, radiussed corners, full-length piano hinges, and our other KYDZSafe® features. We strive to have all of our products meet or exceed industry safety standards. And we work zealously to maintain a well-organized, clean, and safe working environment.
Technology. We embrace the newest technologies to improve efficiency in all aspects of our business—technologies that allow us to employ lean manufacturing practices. As a result, we produce the products our customers need with industry-leading efficiency and timeliness.
People Power. We are keenly aware of the fact that our employees are our greatest asset; people whose devotion to excellence—and to a no defects work ethic—is unwavering. It is their pride, dedication, and hard work that helps shape Jonti-Craft’s future.
Stewardship. We strive to be good stewards by utilizing our resources responsibly. We know that we must first make sustainable choices, but then we must also optimize the usage of those materials and recycle all by-products. Our materials are purchased locally first, domestically second, and imported only when necessary. We are committed to reducing our footprint and we pledge to leave a better world than we have been given.
Relationships. We approach all of our business relationships with integrity, respect, and professionalism. We place a high value on meaningful, long-term relationships with our customers, employees, and suppliers. It is important that our customers benefit from every product we sell, that our employees enjoy working with us, and that our presence helps enrich our community and the world around us.
