At P&H, we consider the broader interests of society by taking responsibility for the impact of our companies’ activities. We believe our responsibility extends beyond the statutory obligation to comply with legislation, to voluntarily take action to improve the quality of life among our employees and their families, local communities and society at large — as well as to protect the environment.
We believe our success comes from our people.
We realize the most important asset to our company is our workforce. We therefore place our number one priority on safety. Our President and COO shares, “No task is so important, no schedule so urgent, that the job cannot be done safely." Through our network of safety initiatives and programs, we help our employees around the world live and work safely. We also place a strong emphasis on professional development through tuition reimbursement programs, patent programs and participation in professional organizations.
P&H has an extensive volunteer program that offers opportunities to employees and retirees to help the community here at our headquarters in Milwaukee. Many of these opportunities are focused on the important STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education initiatives in our neighborhood schools. At our worldwide MinePro locations, we also focus our volunteer opportunities and charitable donations on education, as well as providing resources that provide economic and social stability to the communities of our employees and customers.
As a leading manufacturer of some the world's largest mining equipment needed to harvest vital resources from the earth, we recognize these resources are finite and precious and keep a constant focus on the environment. We engineer and manufacture energy efficient equipment that is used not only to harvest minerals but to reclaim the land following mining activity. We develop enhancements to our equipment that can keep the same equipment operating for decades, prolonging its active life and conserving resources used to manufacture equipment. We help relocate and refurbish equipment, so globally the industry is optimizing all the physical assets. We make decisions that are environmentally sound and are on a constant path to improvement.
