Our Core Values- FISHING:

Our Z.I.P. code guides our conduct.  FISHING best describes how we roll.  What does FISHING mean?  


Fast Failure

  • Our first belief is “Fast Failure” meaning we admit and learn from our mistakes, correct our error and move on.


  • Innovation will ensure long-term growth and encourages employees to embrace change. We must get better and smarter every year. Innovation not only applies to products and processes, it applies to our management structure, our buildings, our policies and they way we treat each other. We are innovative in all ways of the business.

Servant Leadership

  • Servant Leadership is the way management treats employees. We believe the role of leadership is to support, coach, teach, and help every employee be successful. Leadership exists solely to help others be successful in their careers.


  • Honesty is the root of our success. When employees trust and respect each other, there is no limit to what can be achieved!

In the Light

  • In the Light defines our transparent and collaborative culture with both customers and employees. We partner closely with customers to solve their most complex challenges with materials and chemistry. This process is accelerated by openly sharing our expertise and the details of our coating processes. Internally, SilcoTek proactively shares financial information and business strategies with all employees to gain a wider perspective and foster a sense of ownership within each team member. In the Light establishes a foundation of integrity in all our actions.

Never Stop Learning

  • Never Stop Learning is a belief that we have that places accountability on every employee to learn new things every year. We believe the role of leadership is to help every employee write their resume and make themselves more valuable. If something were to happen to SilcoTek, every one of our employees could get a good job elsewhere because they kept their skills sharp. We believe security lies in the abilities of our people.

Give it all You've Got

  • This one is self-explanatory! We are careful to hire exuberant individuals who go the extra mile, who exude positive energy, and who have fun every day at their jobs. You can’t enjoy “coming to work every day as much as going home” if you don’t take time to laugh and enjoy your work.
