Reaching New Milestones: 500 Employees and Counting

At Malouf, putting a focus on our employees and our culture has been a priority from the beginning, and these things are built into our company values: Own It, Act with Integrity, Work to Win, Be Kind, Better Every Day, Do More with Less, Make It Fun, and Think Big Picture.

Our company recently reached over 500 employees across our Logan, Ohio, Texas, and North Carolina locations. To celebrate this exciting milestone, we want to feature a few of our employees who make the magic happen every day.

"People spend a great part of their day and their life at work, and we think it’s important that work is a place our people like to be. We recognize a lot of our success comes from the ideas, efforts, and talents of our great people, so we want to keep them happy and make sure they know they’re appreciated." —Sam Malouf, CEO

Malouf™ takes care of its employees. You quickly feel a unique sense of commitment and investment because Malouf™ honestly cares about you and your family. The working relationship is symbiotic, fostering gratitude, creative fulfillment, and hard work. 

The work culture is so rewarding that you want the company to succeed. There's a collective investment, like a co-op, a sense of stewardship and accountability. I've never experienced anything like it.

Do More with Less. I believe there's strength in simplicity. Doing more with less leverages strength in a focused and economical way that fosters creativity and gratitude.
