CORE VALUES


INTEGRITY, COMMITMENT, TEAMWORK, INNOVATION, FLEXIBILITY, AND FUN

The Field way of life places a high value on people…our fellow team members, our customers, our suppliers, and our community. It’s family-focused, goal-oriented, and success-driven. It’s a place where working relationships lead to friendships and friendships lead to partnerships that go beyond what is defined, required, or expected. We receive regular feedback from our team about how much they appreciate our focus on teamwork and how it creates a sense of belonging. Being a part of Field is truly a different experience and all team members are expected to contribute in a positive way.

Field's History


Field was established in 1976 in Rockford, Illinois by Dick Field and quickly gained a reputation for being a quality fastener partner to businesses in the Rockford area and beyond.

In 1990, Bill Derry and Jim Derry purchased Field and set the company on a decades-long growth trajectory by applying their engineering expertise to customers’ fastener supply chain problems. Thanks to this engineering-based approach and the value it delivers to customers, Field has maintained an average growth rate of 20% per year since 1990. Today, Field serves a global customer base and maintains strong supply partnerships around the world.

Our Focus on Community


Field’s growth and success would not be possible without its unique culture. Focused on a mission of improving lives, the Field team regularly gives time, effort, enthusiasm, and financial support to nonprofit organizations within our community, including the United Way, the Rock River Valley Blood Center, Northern Illinois Food Bank, Rockford Meld, GiGi’s Playhouse, Carpenter’s Place, Habitat for Humanity, Miss Carly's, Discovery Center, and and numerous others.

But the value Field places on community involvement is even better seen through our individual team members, who routinely make a positive difference in the community where we live and work by rolling up their sleeves and volunteering. This intentional focus on making a difference and improving lives helps make Field an employer of choice in our area.

FIELDAMENTALS


The Fieldamentals are 30 principles that expand upon our core values and guide the actions of every Field team member. Aligned with our core values and our mission, these “rules to live by” help inform our decisions and communications every day. From “Make quality personal” and “Be a fanatic about response time” to “Work smart” and “Keep things fun,” our team takes personal responsibility for these Fieldamentals. We share weekly reflections, encourage behaviors, and even evaluate performance in line with our Fieldamentals. It’s another way for team members to connect with what’s important at Field.
