The Pursuit of Excellence

We are passionate about exceeding our clients’ expectations and pursuing excellence in everything we do.


We aim to have a formidable reputation of high character with both our clients and employees. Our priority is to engage ethically and with great integrity in every circumstance. We handle all our business with conviction, candor, compassion, and courage. We value the trust our clients place in us and we are committed to maintaining it.


We believe our company is most effective when we align as a team, not merely as an individual employee. Our company, our clients, and our people are the most successful when we cohesively operate together.

Health, Safety and Environment

A safe and healthy work environment is one of our top priorities. We are committed to responsible environmental stewardship as we continue to look for ways to improve operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts.

Our People

Our most important asset is our people. Every employee helps to characterize, shape, and sustain our company and its reputation. We prioritize professional development and seek to recognize, encourage, and incentivize high performance and standards of excellence. We are committed to each employee having a healthy work/life balance and celebrate our team’s families and community interests.


Each team member at ARM is both an employee and a leader. We work to cultivate an environment that promotes creative thinking, innovation, and prudent risk taking. We believe that the most successful organizations develop proactive and bold leaders. While defined roles and responsibilities may differ, each individual holds the power to make a strong difference in our company and lead us to success.


It is our responsibility to be faithful to the commitments we make to both our customers and employees. Accountability is measured not only by follow-through, but also by comparing our results achieved with our commitment promised. Whether positive or negative, we learn and become better by holding each other to a high standard of hard work and accomplishment.


We have fun while we work hard to succeed. By developing a culture in which people truly enjoy their work, we create a stronger, more sustainable organization.
