“OUR STORY IS A FAMILY STORY
For 128 years, five generations of the Johnson family have led SC Johnson. Each has brought new ideas, adventures and inspirations. But each has also held true to thevalues that guide us – values like integrity, respect, fairness and trust.
As a family company, we put these values above everything else. We choose the best ingredients for our products, not just the most economical. We do what’s right for the business and the planet, not put one before the other. We focus on the next generation, not the next quarter’s earnings report.
SC Johnson was built by people who understood that what we do every day has lasting consequences. And so we continually ask ourselves: What do we do with the lessons from the past? And what will we do to make the world a better place in the future?
These are questions every family explores. And our answer is what the strongest families conclude: We’ll find our path together.
Like any family, the challenges we tackle make us stronger. The wins we enjoy bring us closer together. And in everything we do, we consider our children and the generations to come.”
