At PrimeSource, we care about our culture just as much as we care about our products. Because culture is a product – but it’s not something we sell.

It’s something we live.

For us, it’s simple. We care about four big things, three core groups, and one higher calling.

Collectively we call this…

the blue print.


When we demonstrate care by

  1. Working Hard
  2. Working Smart
  3. Working Fast
  4. Winning Together
    • We try to minimize time spent on “work about work”, instead focusing on how we can create value and impact.
    • We set goals and hold one another accountable to achieve them.
    • We actively give our all to the work at hand, And if we ever find ourselves exhausted rather than energized by this work, we take a break to renew and restore.
    • We approach every day with a sense of commitment and pride, along with a healthy dose of excitement for the opportunities ahead.
    • We minimize complexity and manual processes.
    • We innovate to capture the market and gain efficiencies.
    • We measure achievement in terms of outcomes instead of time sitting in a chair at one’s desk.
    • We communicate and collaborate cross-functionally.
    • We try new things, and if we fail, we do it quickly.
    • We offer and request feedback.
    • We ask questions. We debate. We discuss. But one a decision has been made, we work together to achieve our goal.
    • We accept that change is constant, and we try to move with it rather than against it.
    • We clarify roles and responsibilities.
    • We build our bench strength, coaching and developing our employees so that they can grow within the company.
    • We celebrate our wins and recognize all who contributed to them.
    • We identify and leverage each team member’s strengths.


When we care for each other first, we can better care for our customers. By caring for our customers – in turn – we care for our business, our brands, and our products.


When we win together and focus on our stakeholders, we pave the way to achieve our purpose – to build tomorrow, today.
