Community Engagement

Our commitment to the community is the cornerstone of our engaged culture. Our employees participate in a number of community initiatives throughout the year. Their impact is even greater with the support of the Cooper Standard Foundation. What sets the Foundation apart is the employee engagement it fosters. When a group of four or more Cooper Standard employees gather to raise money or volunteer for a charity, the Company matches their efforts with a financial contribution.


Cooper Standard’s culture is further strengthened by our dedication to innovation which permeates all aspects of our Company. In 2013, we established the i³ Innovation Process to harness the creative energy of our global workforce to identify game-changing advancements, especially in material science, that meet or exceed our customers’ current and future needs. We feel our culture is a key driver in our ability to compete and succeed in global markets.
