Sustainability & Stewardship
Meramec is a family-owned, family-led business. While we have been in business for over 45 years, we are focused on the future of our organization and improving the industry we serve. We believe that our business has impact on our customers, our employees, and the community in which we operate. Our obligation is to be honest and fair, to be a leader, to strive for continuous improvement, and to be prepared for the future.
In the early days, the “family” referred to the immediate family of our founder, Andrew Sanazaro, Sr. Due to our company’s significant growth over the years, today our “family” includes a significant portion of the population of our community – Cuba, Missouri.
We also recognize that as a manufacturer, we have a responsibility to produce quality products that will perform admirably in the field and meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. As a USA-based company, our goal is to always exhibit the very highest of regard and professionalism to our customers, the public, and the environment.
As a good corporate steward, our intentions are to produce quality products while minimizing our impact on the environment. We take great strides and measures to reduce the amount of energy we use, we recycle unused materials, and we utilize renewable resources wherever possible. While we are always learning and adopting new practices, we recognize that this is an on-going process.
As a corporation, we are also mindful and considerate of our employees and the work we ask them to perform. Everyone in our organization is provided training not only for the job, but also for safety measures and for the task or project we ask them to perform. Employee safety is of our utmost concern. We also provide many opportunities for employees to expand their educational growth with our corporate education assistance program.
When you set out to do something right, build something better, and create a working environment where people enjoy coming to work each day, the results are tremendous.
