Gold Crest Distributing - Our Mission

Our Mission

We believe it is crucial that we speak to our company’s mission as it informs and directs our choices and faith.

It is very important to us to encourage everyone to see the beauty and wonder of God’s world. It would be a wonderful plus if we play some small part in engaging more families and children in the outside world. For a very long time, and in every email and letter, I have used the quote at the bottom of this page.

We do our utmost to encourage consumers to shop with locally-owned family businesses. We firmly believe that small independent businesses create the fabric of our main streets particularly in small communities. These businesses draw dollars into their communities, where those dollars remain and have a beneficial multiplying effect. These businesses and their employees are the ones supporting our churches, local causes, charities, and scholarships, and sponsoring ball uniforms on the backs of our children.

We also believe that the country benefits when we manufacture products here at home in the USA. For us, this is pertinent as we manufacture many items here in Missouri. This helps us hire and develop talent and maintain our workforce. In turn, this enriches our local community.
