Ethical Business

Vanpile's business ethos is reflected in our core values of teamwork, integrity, accountability and professionalism.  Our values are not just words on a page, it is how we conduct our business and beyond that, it describes traits that our employees share.

Vanpile seeks to combine its core values and business competencies with ethical principles to accomplish long-term success and maintain its well-established reputation. Everyone at Vanpile, from management to each individual employee, is accountable to behave ethically and in accordance with the Company's Code of Business Conduct. 

Environmental Stewardship

Vanpile is committed to sustainable business practices.  From recycling practices on our projects to recycling programs at our office, we are constantly looking at new ways to reduce our footprint and to improve the way we do business.

Additionally, our adherence to Best Management Practices for land and marine ecosystems is paramount in meeting and, where possible, exceeding guidelines and regulations, along with being a responsible corporate citizen.

Educational Outreach

Vanpile values education and supports a variety of outreach programs along with attending career fairs for school age children.  Our engineers and field staff visit elementary schools to introduce students to marine construction and deep foundations as a potentially satisfying and rewarding career.

Health & Well-Being

Vanpile understands that our employees' well-being is comprised not only of being safe while on the job: health and well-being extends past the work place.  Although Vanpile is growing, we remain small enough that employees are aware of each other's needs whether it is celebrating an addition to an employee's family, to supporting each other during times of challenge.  We are stronger together.
