More than twenty-five years ago, Charles F. Walton (CEO from 1986 to 2010) issued our Company’s first Code of Worldwide Business Ethics. This Code has stood the test of time, is as relevant today as when it was first written, and continues to guide all of us at Smithers-Oasis in our daily business.
We stand by the following commitments:
