A Message From the President
“For UMC, sustainability is about longevity. It requires dedication and commitment to agility, integrity and a “people-first” approach to business. This has made UMC successful for decades and was central to overcoming the challenges of the pandemic. These core tenets of our business were evident in our exclusive supplier relationships that were critical to our ability to deliver high demand products such as clean water solutions, construction resins, food additives, specialty pigments, organic cosmetics, pure metals, and deposition products, among others.
With our employees, we focused on their well-being inside and outside of the workplace. We made mental health resources available, adapted our processes and systems to a remote work environment, and invested in the community and family culture that has made UMC successful. Many of the adaptations to remote processes and systems and digital transformation are what will make us stronger in our collaboration and communication with our stakeholders moving forward.
Our core tenants empower us to understand our customers, suppliers and logistics partners’ experiences to make strategic improvements. We actively seek feedback and insights in order to deliver better service and offer products to stay ahead of market trends and regulatory requirements. Our organic and environmentally conscious product lines of colorants, additives, ingredients, and cosmetics are rapidly evolving. Our deposition and battery products are keeping pace with digital and technological demands. We listen, we act, and we prioritize sustainability throughout our processes.
We give back to the communities and groups that touch our business in which our partners, customers, suppliers, and employees have passions for. We contribute through our time and financial contributions to local food shelves, provide scholarship programs, non-profit institutions, and charity foundations that serve at-risk groups and people with special needs.
With a long history of success, we are excited to increase our focus and investment in our approach to sustainability by formalizing our efforts and working towards executing our ESG goals. Thank you for your support and partnership in our sustainability journey.”
