Little Rapids Corporation Completes $40 Million Upgrade at its Shawano Paper Mill
Little Rapids Corporation is a global leader in the healthcare, beauty, specialty paper, and custom converting markets. With a culture dedicated to innovative design and operational excellence, we deliver products that offer protection, value, and convenience.
Leading is not always a matter of size, but refers equally to the quality of our products, the strength of our brands, and the reliability of our service.
Our organizational values guide all of our interactions and strategic initiatives. We have four core values that represent the way we will achieve our goals and turn our vision into reality. Taken together, these values translate into a set of behavioral expectations that unite us and guide our decision-making, conduct, and actions.
We meet commitments made to customers, suppliers, and fellow associates with urgency and professionalism. We achieve operational and administrative excellence in everything we do. We expect all associates to live our values. We use 5S to maintain a safe, clean, neat, and organized work environment, and use the DMAIC process to solve problems and guide decision making.
We embrace diverse thoughts, philosophies and experiences. We communicate openly and honestly and maintain relationships based on trust. We meet every challenge with enthusiasm and a positive, can do attitude. We expect all associates to participate in assigned project team activities. We celebrate our successes and each others accomplishments – both personal and professional.
We nurture and embrace creativity, imagination, and positive change. We expect everyone to continuously improve all work processes every day. We expect all associates to adopt a mindset of growth and personal improvement. We honor and respect our long-standing traditions, but do not allow them to impede change. We have a bias for action in assessing and implementing ideas.
We communicate candidly with associates about their performance and development opportunities. We expect people to work hard while maintaining work-life balance. We honor all customers, suppliers, and fellow associates with superior service and integrity. We never knowingly walk by an unsafe working condition without taking action. We strictly adhere to the LRC Code of Conduct and each site’s Plant Rules.
