business philosophy

Based on the work ethic and business acumen of founder Kirkman O’Neal, dating back to 1921, O’Neal Industries (ONI) and its family of companies are committed to conducting business with the highest degree of integrity, fairness, honesty, and reliability. We maintain stringent standards for quality, and are dedicated to continuous improvement in every aspect of our operations. As a family-owned organization, we also have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to make quick decisions with minimal red tape – making us nimble, responsive, and innovative in the ways we solve problems, answer customers’ needs, and capitalize on opportunities. Above all, our customers and employees are our highest priority. We strive to provide our customers with unprecedented quality, service, and value. And we maintain open communication with our employees, encourage their input, provide the training and guidance they need to be safe and successful, and treat them with respect.

The statement above is much more than mere words on a website. It is indeed the philosophy by which we live and do business; and it extends far beyond the walls of ONI’s corporate office. Each and every ONI company operates by the same guiding principles – because we are a family. These beliefs run deep. They make us who we are, and are demonstrated through our actions. They unite us and make our family stronger in every way.
