In business, leadership is all about results. At Kennametal, we have always been committed to operating our business with the utmost integrity and the highest ethical standards. We treat each other, our customers, suppliers and others with honesty and fairness in all of our dealings. As a global competitor with a presence in over 60 countries across the globe, we operate in a very diverse work environment. Our diversity is what makes us strong, but at the same time can present challenging situations. Different cultures mean different solutions. The challenge is arriving at solutions that fit the local culture, but also fit within the Code of Ethics.
