The Estes Values
The Estes Company is one with principles.
You don’t survive 30 U.S. presidents without something to stand on. It’s these values which have allowed us to navigate countless wars and the Great Depression. It’s these principles that will get us through whatever comes next.
The world has changed quite a bit since the time we were founded. In fact, we have too. Most things do change. Yet others don’t. Our drive to provide the highest quality service is one of the latter.
As a company, we are blessed because we bless others.

If they are quiet, the stones will cry out.
The Estes’ company is owned and managed by people who hold very tightly to some guiding principles in their lives. They are:
- There is a God who has created and ordered the Universe, this world, and our lives.
- God does in fact love us. He provides for us.
- As a rule, humans tend toward their own selves, rebelling against the true God. This is commonly called sin. It is separation from God, rejection of God, or the formation of our own view or version of our own god.
- God is holy. He is perfect. Although the human race has and continues to reject him, he has made a way to reach out and save us from the doom of that rebellion. The way is Jesus.
- Although he was born poor, never wrote a book, never ruled a country, never traveled more than 300 miles from the place of his birth, was given over by his own country men to be killed, there is no one who has ever influenced the world as much as Jesus has. He is our Lord and Savior.
- We order our lives around Jesus. We follow his teachings, and strive to obey his commands. We believe that the Christian Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God.
What does that mean to you?
We run the Estes’ Company to honor God. We respect the individuals who work for us. We respect the world of nature that God has created. We are bound by our Lord to be honest and fair with our suppliers, with our employees, and with both our direct and indirect customers. We stand behind our products, our agreements, and our employees.
