Asking Why: Understanding the Heart and Soul of Our Company

Posted by Sentry Equipment on 2/14/19 8:32 AM



If we’ve learned anything from almost 100 years in business, it’s that our most important values don’t come from what we do or how we do it. Our most important values come from a much deeper place within our organization and our people.

When explaining what Sentry Equipment does, it's tempting to just say "Sentry Equipment makes sampling equipment". But that’s not the fundamental reason we exist. Understanding the “why” behind what we do is critical to serving customers better, maintaining a strong ownership culture, and setting ourselves up for sustainable growth and success. 

Why do we exist?

Why do we do what we do?

Why do we get out of bed in the morning?

Sentry Is All about making the world better

  • Sentry Equipment helps power plants safeguard their equipment so we have a reliable power supply and the lights stay on.
  • Oil refineries rely on our products to protect their employees so they won't get hurt by high pressure, high temperatures or toxic chemicals.
  • Food plants us our products to make sure our food supply is safe.

 At Sentry, Our "Why?" Starts with our "Who?"

We’re able to deliver on the promise of our “Why?” thanks to our team of “A-Player” employee-owners.

Setting out to achieve our "why" of safeguarding people and processes might seem simple, but it's not easy. We challenge ourselves every day to be A Players in everything we do: how we work, how we interact with each other and how we serve our customers.

As a team, we know that we’re all in this together, for one fundamental reason:

To make the world better by safeguarding
people, processes and equipment.
