Our Culture


Guiding Principles

IRIS USA, Inc. is a dynamic, fast-growing company, manufacturing a wide variety of home and office plastic and pet products for domestic consumption and worldwide export. The name IRIS USA stands for quality and excellence. Our branded name is recognized worldwide, and our fine employees have helped to make IRIS USA one of the most successful businesses in the United States.

The pride we have in IRIS USA, in our products, and in the service we provide to our customers is the reason we have grown in the past and why we will continue to grow in the future. We embrace the philosophy, The Customer Comes First, and we are guided by the following principles:

To put the customer first, always. We recognize that no business can grow without building strong relationships with its customer. We forge such relationships with our customers by creating great and unique products that help our customers expand their businesses which, in turn, helps us grow.

To remain flexible.  We keep ourselves constantly attuned to the business environment and are willing to adapt to the changing needs and buying habits of retail buyers and consumers, while still remaining competitive.

To contribute to society.  We are always mindful of the relationship between our Company, society and people by reinvesting profit in the Company and improving the lives and lifestyles of our employees, our customers and the people who use our products.

To be ambitious and to remember that perfection is unattainable.  We know that energy for improvement comes from acknowledging our mistakes, and that we cannot develop our Company and ourselves without admitting our imperfections and overcoming them directly.

To be an excellent Company.  We look upon our association with our employees as a partnership in growth and we strive never to lose sight of this partnership. We want our employees to prosper, which helps us to prosper. And, so, we provide the tools to make each employee’s job more dynamic and interesting. Mutual respect for one another is a basic ingredient that guides us as we work together to reach our goals.
