Each day, our teammates live our purpose — We Keep the World Moving — and demonstrate they can thrive during challenging times. Guided by our mission, they continue to show agility and resiliency while remaining relentlessly focused on our customers and strengthening our company for the future.

We recognize the importance of operating sustainably and with a long-term view of critical environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Through our sustainability efforts, we can continue to be the employer of choice for each of our teammates; the supplier of choice for all our customers; a valued and preferred customer to each of our suppliers; a respected community member that gives back to the communities in which we operate; and a preferred investment choice of all our shareholders.

Thank you to our GPC teammates, partners and suppliers who work each and every day to exceed the needs of our customers and strengthen our communities, all while making the world a better place. I’m optimistic about what the future holds and look forward to what we’ll achieve together.
