Saint Jean Industries Group
A history dating back more than 50 years…
The rise of Saint Jean Industries is closely linked to the Di Serio family, the company’s founders and leaders who have maintained a consistent focus on innovating and expanding in the global market.
“Working for a cleaner world and reducing the use of natural resources to save capital, energy and time.”
“Becoming a strong, independent international industrial company that is a force to be reckoned with, delivering innovative solutions to customers, improving business and product-line expertise daily, and searching for “blue oceans” where everyone can develop and thrive.”
* Blue Ocean: A market created by expanding our current sphere of operations. A lack of self-reflection, combined with a certain complacency and increasingly fierce competition, could turn this into a red ocean. (Image of the blood spilled if you go for a swim in that shark-infested ocean).
To be involved, communication is required at all levels of the company. Being responsible and be able to make proposals.
It is respect for yourself and others in all modesty. Listening and recognizing the value and skills of others.
It’s moving forward by putting everyone’s skills into a common goal because none of us knows what we all know together!
Perpetual search for new ideas in both personal and professional fields. Inspire passion:
Learning from others,
To transmit its skills.
It is the driving force of inspiration to conceive ideas and realized them. Imagine together the improvements for tomorrow’s work: Working conditions – Processes – Products.
