Our Culture

Core Values

Emco is founded on strong core values which impact how we act and the decisions we make everyday. “Do the right thing” is a fundamental belief shared throughout the organization and is integral to our success in building strong customer relationships that withstand the test of time.

Fairness and Caring
Doing the right thing and being committed to the success of others. Showing others by our words and actions that we genuinely care about them personally and professionally.

Trust and Respect
Acting with integrity and leading by example. Always doing what we say we are going to do. Being trusting and respectful of others.

Generous Listening
Listening carefully and deeply to ensure we fully understand each other. Being open to new ideas. Suspending our judgments in a way that encourages others to share their opinions and allows us to hear what others are truly saying.

Straight Talk
Respectfully saying the things we really mean in a timely manner and in the spirit of fairness and support of others. Providing feedback and being committed to having the conversations that are needed.

Our Vision

Total customer satisfaction…always.

At Emco, we believe every customer’s needs are important and unique and we use this as a guiding principle to stock our shelves. We understand your time is limited. You need a one-stop-shop with depth and breadth to meet your diverse needs. We get it…and we’ve got it! We carry a wide array of plumbing, HVAC, industrial and waterworks supplies from leading manufacturers.

What’s more, we understand you’ve got to trust the people you work with. Our team goes the extra mile to get the job done and provide quality products. We’ve also got more than a century of experience we draw on for anything else you need. Technical advice and training? Check! After-hours emergency supply? No problem! We’re dedicated to helping you succeed.

Emco is an equal opportunity employer and committed to maintaining a barrier free workplace where all employees can contribute to their fullest potential. We welcome applications from women and men including members of visible minorities, aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities.
