Responsibility

I still remember that more than 50 years, arriving on time my work was a challenge, I played a long journey, which included having to get up early, transship many buses and take long walks through coffee plantations, many times, under the severe weather … The world has changed and with it came modernity in terms of road infrastructure and transport more efficient, but never stop reaching the exact time and comply fully with my homework. Now I understand that my decision in any way be responsible for transmission work and committed many other people. Accountability is a fundamental and essential value of life..

Human Development

I remember my first day working as a Maintenance Supervisor, I immediately assumed responsibility to repair a fan supplying cold air to the center line of cardaje (area where cotton fibers go through a combing process) that days there was not much time to do a full tour inside the plant, but the time has elapsed, and now after 13 years, and as Head of Production, attest not only to know every corner of the factory and its sophisticated machinery, but even more, each and every one of the people who work closely and diligently in the production process.

Proof & Continuous Improvement

The consistency and continuous improvement are two core values ​​that have accompanied me throughout my life, from emergence of a modest job as a bookseller, reaching a position of administrative leadership, however, the power to procreate my three wonderful daughters with my persistent husband, let me attest to the many blessings, strength and inspiration received from God.

The adoption of these principles has allowed me to grow in the professional field, so much so that today I am instrumental in the decision of the administrative council of cotton, making manage efficiently and effectively to economic resources, human and material the factory, which has resulted in prosperity, development and productivity for this.

Quality

From the point of view of the Technical Directorate of Cotton Superior Quality is talking about compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices, For a company that manufactures medical and surgical products (PMQ) and toiletries (PT) are classified as products, according to the Regulations for the Control of Drugs and Allied Products, GMP compliance throughout the industry as it has to do with the health of the population, is indispensable.

After more than 15 years working in High Cotton SA and see improvement in its facilities, equipment, personnel, documentation, distribution, product innovation and realize that every day there is more commitment from management and the rest of the staff for compliance with GMP not only as a legal obligation, but as a philosophy of life within the company, I am very pleased and proud to work with it, unique in Central America, where the quality is a daily goal.

Enthusiasm & Teamwork

Behind every fiber, cotton ball and pad lies the enthusiasm, commitment and teamwork of each and every one of the great family which is the Superior, a passion that comes from the heart of the organization and its beginnings, a Board of Directors an Administrative Council and a group of collaborators across and three generations have had the full conviction that TEAMWORK is the most effective method to achieve the highest level of productivity in each area, a principle that serves as the axis Cam drives in sync and effective Organizational all the gear, so that even in the absence of any of its parts, it remains efficient. Thus, the passion, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit of those who constituted Superior Cotton, S. A. in 1956, passed on from generation to generation, leaving a significant mark on the lives of every employee.

In the 20 years that I have to serve as facilitator for resource management and development of IT for Superior Cotton, I have been able to validate not only the evolution and technological development that has brought us to this day to implement cutting edge technology in our administrative management (Microsoft Dynamics), but I could not understand how the organization is fed in parallel through the enthusiasm and tenacious work of many, people who may be able to go unnoticed in terms of decision making, but that similarly have contributed positively to the consolidation of our leadership and mentality, so come to life the excitement of Jack the messenger, inside and outside our facilities were a great philanthropist, decimating their talent (charisma), and scarce resources for the most in need, our housekeeper, who with his kindness and willingness huge supplies our needs daily cleaning and servicing, our plant operators through a secretive process of production, give life to each finished product represent us with dignity on the shelves of the large surface area, the guards who watch over our security, and even our families, same as those behind us giving us support and unconditional support to confront the challenges of each day, each and all who contribute unconditionally, in good times and bad, in prosperity and austerity, day and night, enabling each of us become a leader, can call themselves a great family member TOP.

Loyalty

Loyalty is one of the most cherished values ​​in organizations, but is now known that the lack of loyalty is also one of the most common complaints. Thus arises the need to set a binding precedent for themselves and the organization, something that even goes beyond a contract, which leads to a basic service promise tenacious, a guarantee of quality and excellence in the face our clients, who we really owe. (Regional distributors, government institutions, wholesalers, retailers and final consumers).

I still remember that in an October 15, 1995, date in which I was hired as Assistant Sales Manager, I had to receive first-hand the best and most consistent example of loyalty pate of the founders of High Cotton, S. A; people of integrity, committed to their moral principles and organizational values, an inspiring example that proactively influenced not only me, but in each of the contributors to this organization, to such an extent that even today the loyalty represented and our core values ​​that precede us, is intimately linked to their identity that has shaped our industry leadership. For me it’s a real honor and a source of great pride to work for the Guatemalan company Algodón Superior, S. A.

Integrity & Leadership

This issue is something we have to look at from different points of view, because if we talk about an integrated company, while we talk about the team of people working in them and therefore what we are as people outside, both in the social and family life. The first thing that comes to mind when I speak of integrity is doing the right thing, something that will bring internal growth without affecting others.

If we have integrity as a people, we can achieve through our leadership to our team and our company also is.

In the case of the focused leadership we have the ability to affect others, either with our attitudes and guidelines or our products, because of the way we act within the organization, is how the people we look from the outside world. When you buy our product, not only is buying a product made from cotton, are buying a way of doing things, love, gentleness that put our workers in our product and our company have a product makes us different from the competition within that package are assessments of fibers, credit agreements on purchase and sale, production guidelines, ideas, innovation and development, gentlemen’s agreements, choice of our distributors, so all that combined is what lead us to be the company we are today and be on the minds of consumers, for our consistent quality.
