Volpes Linen Company
Reuben Volpe expressed the philosophy of the company in his typically straight-forward manner, when he said: “I want to be able to look customer in the eye.” Trust, reliability and honour were more important to him than the bottom line, and these values still define the company today.
â€œBuilding long-term relationships is what Volpes is about,â€ says Reuben’s son Chuck Volpe, the current CEO of Volpes. â€œNot only does it make good business sense but it gives us the fulfilment of making friends while we do business. Whenever Iâ€™m not sure what to do, I ask myself the question: What will grow this relationship? Itâ€™s all about being guided by valuesâ€.
