"VPI is an organization of people committed to continuous improvement of the products and services we provide to meet our customers' needs for commercial flooring, thermoplastic sheet, and custom compounding. We will achieve profitable growth in rapidly changing environments through the strategic marketing of new products, added value for existing products, and acquisitions which complement our manufacturing, marketing, and distribution skills".A Quality Statement, written and adopted at the same time, served as the guiding framework for conducting day-to-day business. It read:"VPI is committed to a policy of continuous improvement of our ability to meet or exceed customer expectations for the products and services we offer. It is our basic operating philosophy to concentrate on prevention of problems, making quality a way of life which results in satisfied customers." All of this allowed VPI to put its total commitment to quality into motion.It is worth pointing out that although VPI has continually reinvented itself to meet and exceed the changing needs of the market, these principles remain intact, allowing VPI to differentiate its products and services through well thought out and well-executed customer-driven programs, policies and procedures.
