CRW’s Eight Core Values
- The client is first. Our entire existence depends on satisfying the needs of those who purchase and use our products.
- We are known by what we do. We strive at all times for quality and value in our products, responsiveness in our service, and integrity in our actions. We work for continual improvement in all we do, and do not accept “good enough”.
- We take individual action. Decisiveness and action are preferable to doing nothing. To act is recognition that we as individuals and as a team can only succeed by seeking and accepting change. The risk of action, and the freedom to sometimes fail are the necessary costs of making progress.
- People are trusted and respected. Every coworker and client we work with deserves our full confidence and is worthy of fair treatment at all times. Open communication at every level is the foundation of this respect and trust.
- Profit is a legitimate goal and critical result. Only the earning of profits allows CRW to contribute to the welfare of its customers, give job security to its team, and support worthwhile endeavors.
- We are environmentally responsible. CRW selects and uses materials and energy in an environmentally friendly way.
- CRW is a citizen of the community in which it operates. We play an active role in promoting the quality of life in our community and society.
After over 50 years of continuous business, we know the importance of sustainability. The survival of our business depends on the health of our planet’s resources.
Green from the roots up—we’re leading the way in keeping the earth healthy.
Printing is probably not the first industry that comes to mind when you think of sustainability. But it is in print that the biggest strides can be made, and CRW is constantly developing new processes to reduce its consumption.
We are Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified as a responsible Chain of Custody printer, and we’ve also received awards from GreenWorks and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for our efforts.
We’ve already taken a number of steps to reduce our impact:
- Switched to linseed oil-based lithographic inks (a natural and renewable resource)
- Eliminated all film and chemicals from our prepress processes
- New plating process saves ~150,000 gallons of fresh water per year
- All paper scraps, waste ink, and printing plates are recycled
- Vegetable-based inks and recycled paper available for all projects
We are known by what we do.
Quality is one of our Core Values, and is an essential part of our culture. Perfection is not a static target, but it’s what we aim for. Our Continuous Improvement process ensures that we’re always getting better. Taken together, these activities make up a comprehensive Quality Management System (QMS) that applies to all of our work.
And when unexpected challenges do occur, corrective action is taken immediately to minimize impact. Each issue is carefully documented and investigated to determine the root cause. We systematically review our procedures, technology, chemistry, and training to determine what can be improved. Then the solution is integrated into our processes moving forward.
At CRW, we lead by example in both our industry and our community. Environmental and social awareness are essential to our efforts to support those around us. Many of us serve on boards and volunteer for charitable, academic, and community organizations across the Delaware Valley. We are proud of our various honors from the Philadelphia Cares Coalition, United Way, and Printing Industries of America, who recently named us one of the 25 Best Places to Work.
Conservation is also one of the most important aspects of our business, enabling our industry to continue without causing long-term damage to the environment. CRW is committed to reducing or eliminating our reliance on non-renewable resources, by being 100% lithography film-free, using vegetable-based inks, and being Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified for using responsibly-sourced or recycled paper, in addition to other initiatives.
