SCG recognises that providing a safe and healthy workplace & protection of the environment, while delivering quality products and services, is imperative to its sustainability.

Our Values

Manaakitanga - People Matter

We honour the principles of Te Tiriti and acknowledge the tangata whenua of Otahuhu, Mutukaroa and Maungarei which surround us.  
We respect the mana of all our stakeholders. We will always take the extra step to serve our clients, our suppliers, and our community.
 We encourage cultural and individual diversity and actively work towards a safe and inclusive work culture. 
Having the best plant in the world is nothing without the team who run them. Our team is full of artists and craftspeople creating and bringing amazing ideas to life.

Kaitiakitanga - Sustainability Matters

We care about the world we live in and take our guardianship, for future generations, seriously. 
We do the right thing for our business, our community, our planet. 
We don’t just ‘talk the talk’, we ’walk the talk and clear the path for others to follow’.

Ke rawe te mahi - Quality Matters

We work with best-in-class technology and welcome innovation; we don’t stand still.
Our production world is measured in microns and dots of ink, so we pay attention to the details. 
We take pride in our work and constantly record and review our processes to ensure our quality management system is up to date.

We will aim high, be persistent, and won't let obstacles stop us from reaching our goals.
