Distica's values—which serve as employees' guiding light—are as follows:


Means honoring one's word, operating with integrity, professionalism and honesty. Our suppliers and customers should be able to trust our words, trusting that we respect the laws, regulations and expectations made of our company.


Is the basis for an honest work environment. We strive to communicate clearly and honestly, but in a way that is also considerate and constructive. We welcome the opinions of others and want to stimulate critical thinking. Speaking honestly without beating about the bush also saves time.


Symbolizes our employees‘ desire and endeavor to grow, evolve, mature and do better. We always strive to do better—there being no such thing as a permanent solution. We are open to changes and innovation. We take initiative and challenge the status quo.
