The men and women of Papé don’t have to be told their job. And they don’t need to be inspired or encouraged to do their best. It just comes with the territory. Papé employees are proud of their role in the West. They’re proud of the respect they get from neighbors and friends and they take pride in earning that respect from their customers and coworkers.
