Envelex prides itself on its leadership approach of empowering their employees. Department managers make decisions on their operating strategies and along with the support of executive management can see the results of their implemented ideas. The proof of this leadership strategy can be seen with the stability of their team. Many of Envelex’s core executive level, management level, supervisors and operating personnel have been with the company from its inception. Even through the challenging times of 2008-09 global financial crisis, Envelex maintained in place its full human capital resource.
Corporate social responsibility is an essential responsibility for Envelex with much focus on sustainability through their strict safety and recycling program, environmental awareness through their participation in monthly waste water monitoring checks and energy awareness through their upcoming installation of solar roof panels. This year also sees Envelex donating over 500m2 of glazed window wall and other building materials to a meditation building project north of Bangkok. Along with their annual meditation outings for all staff and family, this truly represents Envelex’s strategy as a stakeholder focused company.
Envelex holds great belief with innovation and change, with a customer-centric approach to today's market and into the future.

Envelex holds dearly its authentic approach to the supplier-customer relationship. As an integral part of a global supply chain they recognize the critical component of communication, of open-book clarity and transparency. Special mention must be made of Envelex’s top-tier US curtainwall specialist client, Enclos Corp. This supply relationship has held strong through fifteen years of uninterrupted and continuing cooperation and the mainstay of this success is relationship, trust and response through open communication and dialogue.
Entrepreneurial leadership spurs strength in Envelex’s customer centric philosophy. The upholding of commitment to customer needs is pivotal to Envelex’s success, embracing a customer centric strategy and practicing corporate social responsibility, thus delivering credibility and reputation of Envelex to the global market. The strengths of integrity and trust are the key pivotal tools in Envelex’s customer relationship management strategy.
Recognizing their customer’s wants and needs spurs growth. Visible presence remains a key to success in their external environment, through physical interaction and more so with today’s social media connection at all levels, thus opportunities are strengthened through visibility. A level of entrepreneurial skill is required with assessment and foresight to stay focused on opting for the right projects and delivering them right.
Communicating objectives and goals to all Envelex’s stakeholders demonstrates a modern leadership strategy of open communication with providing a clearly defined vision and where it is going to all of those involved. Envelex firmly believes that the measure of their success in credibility and reputation to their external environment is only as strong as the measure of strength in their internal environment. Envelex leadership cannot achieve its goals without its vitally important human capital.
