Core Values

MULE firmly believes in keeping the customer satisfied.  We are not successful unless we provide a quality product at a reasonable price to our clients.  MULE is also interested in being part of the team that provides superior facilities to our customer – and that includes all of the stakeholders that utilize those facilities.  Safety is not only our core value but in our DNA.  We are proud to show our customers that we haven’t had an accident since we were founded in 2007.  We intend to keep it that way.

Much like the blueprints and materials we use to build strong foundations and durable buildings, our core values help us build strong relationships and a lasting company. In fact, at MULE, our core values can be summed up in one word - B.U.I.L.D.

Be Our Best: We always strive to do our best to be the best. This means we hold each other to high standards and treat each other, our customers, vendors and other affiliated persons, fairly and with dignity, respect and caring. We embrace individual differences and are strengthened by a diversity of cultures, perspectives, attitudes and ideas. Through teamwork, we bring together the best in all of us, to bring out the best in all of us. This allows us to achieve
excellence in all we do.

Uncompromisingly Committed to Superior Safety Standards: We are uncompromising with safeguarding the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers, community and other affiliated persons. Safety is not just a policy; it is rooted in our culture as a core value. We are committed to being an industry leader in comprehensive safety practices by ensuring we have expert knowledge of all laws and regulations, by establishing robust safety procedures, providing appropriate certifications and learning opportunities for our employees and demanding individual accountability for compliance with our safety standards, from all levels of the organization.

Integrity: We are guided by a solid moral compass, and hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards. We own our mistakes and learn from them. We understand that trust is built through responsible, honest actions.

Listen Respectfully: Communication is essential in any workplace. We understand the best communication starts with listening. We know that active listening leads to greater learning, better understanding and stronger collaboration with employees, customers and others with whom we interact. We strive to create thriving partnerships by ensuring we practice open communication that emphasizes respectful listening.

Dedicated to Quality: We are dedicated to the highest standards of quality. We take pride in maintaining rigorous standards for all of our projects and services, no matter how big or small. We are passionate about providing excellent service and care about achieving outstanding results. This means we don’t settle for just pleasing our customers but we are committed to exceeding their expectations in the work we do and the level of service we provide.

MULE believes that, together with our subcontractors and vendors, we are part of the team that is organized by our customers.  We are not their hired contractor, but part of an organization that delivers quality construction with a safety program that stands above our competition – all at a reasonable price.

Safety is very important to MULE and therefore 100% of the MULE employees are OSHA certified.  Safety is our number one concern.  In order to build our projects, we need employees who are committed to a safe work environment.
