Company Culture

Safe. Effective. Innovative.

Our Dedication to Service Creates True Customer Value

With decades of experience in the industry, it would have been easy to maintain the status quo. But CDI was founded to challenge norms, to innovate and to create true value for our customers every day.

We challenge ourselves. We challenge each other. We create solutions for you through the last mile.

Employees Are Our Family

Employee safety isn’t a matter of meeting minimum guidelines. It’s not a matter of avoiding fines. It is baked into everything we do. We want our employees to have the safest, most effective worksites possible, in the warehouse, on the road or delivering to your doors.

We know that safe workers provide the best service. It’s all part of our commitment to our customers, the community and to each other.

Employees are our family. We protect them like you protect yours.
