A message from the CEO
Noble started out as a family business. As we’ve grown, we’ve expanded our team and the definition of family; every day we strive to retain our spirit of supporting each other, going the extra mile for our customers, and developing better approaches to getting the job done. Vital to that spirit is Noble’s dedication to strong business ethics.
Noble’s practices promote integrity, customer satisfaction, respect for our people, and quality products and services. The purpose of this Code is to provide a framework for the standards of conduct we must follow in our business dealings. Each member of the Noble Team has the responsibility to read, understand, and uphold our rules of ethical behavior.
Our Code of Business Ethics demands the high level of ethical standards and personal integrity that is reflected in everything we do. At the same time, we expect our employees to exercise good judgment and maintain high ethical standards in activities that affect the company. Each of us is held to these standards.
At any time, you may address any questions, concerns, or issues directly to your supervisor or a member of the management team. Noble is committed to maintaining a safe, comfortable, and ethical environment for each of our employees.
