Doing business with integrity

At FLEXcon, we place high value on doing the right thing. That’s why for more than 65 years, we’ve been conducting business with integrity – it’s one of our four core values.

A major part of this commitment has been incorporating sustainable business practices wherever we can. As a global manufacturer of pressure-sensitive films and adhesives, we recognize the potential impact on the environment from our manufacturing processes and our products. It’s our policy to minimize environmentally adverse operations by striking a balance between environmental factors and our manufacturing processes. In addition to our many sustainable manufacturing initiatives, this is evidenced by the numerous memberships in which we are actively involved which include: SGP, APR, CELAB, SPC and the TLMI sustainability council.  

We believe being a good steward of our environmental resources will make us a stronger, more competitive company, better able to support and satisfy our broad customer base. Our employees and neighbors also benefit from our sustainability efforts.

  • Provide materials for schools and other civic organizations.
  • Support charities within the communities where we operate.

Our employees play a vital role in the success of our business, and we strive to be a great place to work for all our employees by:

  • Encouraging employees to live a healthier life by offering a workplace wellness program.
  • Being a smoke- and tobacco-free workplace.
  • Providing an open forum for all employees to suggest opportunities in environmental and sustainable matters.
  • Utilizing an Environmental Management System (EMS), which defines responsibilities of employees at all levels of the organization to continuously monitor and improve environmental factors.
  • Requiring all FLEXcon employees and operations to comply with applicable local, state, and federal regulations relating to environmental matters.

While we are proud of our accomplishments, we recognize that our sustainability initiative must always be evolving, with constant improvements to minimize any impacts of our current and future activities. Moreover, we understand that sustainability is an investment in the future that will not only benefit our customers, employees, and suppliers, but also the societies and the world in which we live.
