Committed to Integrity and Solid Results
To be a truly sustainable company, you must continually meet your obligations and responsibilities to the environment, to shareholders and employees, as well as the communities in which you operate.
Since 1864, Glatfelter has been a secure and profitable investment for the communities in which we operate; for our skilled and dedicated employees; for the countless suppliers who rely on us to help keep their small businesses in operation; and for our investors who afford us the opportunity to grow stronger and return value.
The concept of sustainability is embedded in Glatfelter’s culture and in our core values. We recognize the important role we play in being a good corporate citizen and in meeting or exceeding shareholder expectations. Our ability to grow our business responsibly and our commitment to continuous improvement has led to long-term stability and successful financial performance (469 KB PDF).
We have built a business model around high-value niche markets using speed, flexibility, innovation, solid operational performance and customer intimacy. This model has enabled us to build strong customer relationships and enhance shareholder value. It has also positioned us to reinvest in our business to develop new world-class products. More than 50% of Glatfelter's sales revenue in 2017 was generated from products less than five years old using the Product Development Management Association's "Cooper Categories" and accepted definitions for new products. We have achieved this NPD program target every year for the past ten consecutive years.
With a strong balance sheet and investments in new products, Glatfelter is strategically positioned for continual growth and to become the global supplier of choice in specialty papers and engineered products.
