  • Own Up – No one is perfect. We get that. If you make a mistake, own up to it, help to fix it, learn from it and move on
  • It Ain’t always Sunny – Ag construction is a vital part of our rural economy, but it’s hard work. Whether it’s 85 and sunny, or 15 and snowing, we work in the elements, day in and day out. Because of that, positive attitudes are a must. We’re all in this together in every situation to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
  • No Jerks Allowed – It doesn’t matter if we’re talking to a customer or a colleague, treating others with respect, having a good attitude and taking responsibility for our work is the utmost importance. Whatever job we’re on, we give 100% at all times, doing everything to the very best of our ability. We take pride in what we do and how we treat one another is no exception.
  • Everything we build, we build with excellence and pride. We want to show the world that no one builds better than Summit.
