Our Values

FAMILY-INSPIRED CULTURE – Our people are like family. We support and inspire each other every day. We collaborate and roll up our sleeves to pitch in whenever needed. Estes is a third- and fourth-generation family owned and run enterprise, so our focus is on the long-term.

STABILITY & EXPERIENCE – We have nine decades of experience characterized by continual growth and development of end-to-end solutions. That experience — along with a conservative fiscal management policy — means that we have the resources, equipment, and technology that will provide customers with continual improvements.

SAFETY – We are resolute in the quest to keep people safe — both our associates and the public.

INNOVATION – Our culture embraces flexibility and the development of new ideas and technology for improving the breadth of services we offer every day.

INTEGRITY & TRUST – Our unwavering commitment to honesty, fairness, and doing the right thing is one of the main reasons we’re still in business after almost nine decades.

EMPOWERMENT – We equip associates to provide the best service to our customers and celebrate the ability to overcome obstacles.

COURAGE & DETERMINATION – We are passionate about inspiring smart thinking, a make-it-happen mentality, and a drive to excel in order to create better outcomes.
