Safety: Everything we make must be safe and efficacious.

Integrity: We must operate with integrity no matter who we deal with- employees, customers, investors, government or society at large. Even large lucrative deals must not shake our resolve to operate with integrity.

Sustainability: We believe that we must live on this planet in a responsible manner and make it better than what it was for the future generations.

Pursuit of Excellent: Everything we do must be world class yet affordable.
