Founded on traditional Midwestern values of hard work, integrity, honesty, and strong relationships, we honor an agreement made with a handshake as much as a written contract. When we work, we work hard, but when we relax, we enjoy being where life is less hectic. Our down-home values are reflected in our corporate headquarters being in the middle of a corn field rather than the middle of a city.
