As a family-owned company since 1925, Pella’s culture is largely based on our solid, successful foundation and core values. As our founder, Pete Kuyper, always said, “Pella is primarily a human institution that values teamwork, safety and respect for the individual. We reward simplicity over complexity, and action over bureaucracy.”
At Pella, our teamwork, diversity and open, two-way communication ensure that everyone's ideas and suggestions are heard, and that each person feels respected and valued. For example, we hold regular company-wide meetings on our State of Business. Pella also has a strong history of sharing the rewards of our success with all team members: Our profit-sharing program is just one way we do that.
Most important, we measure our company’s success by how well we satisfy our customers. That’s one of the reasons we are so passionate about continuous improvement. Each team member at Pella Corporation is always encouraged to think about ways our processes and our products can be better. And we continuously hold structured events that help move these thoughts into action.
Pella Corporation started with a husband and wife from the small Dutch community of Pella, Iowa, one newfangled invention, and a desire to enrich the homes and lives of others.
