Our Founder

“As president and as a leader I am passionate about helping others reach their full potential.

A Pacific Northwest native with Native American heritage, I understand first-hand the rigors and rewards of hard work. I am guided by the strength exhibited by my Cherokee mother who fought poverty and separation from her family – and honored by my father and bothers who served our country in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

My professional life has always followed a path of customer service and treating others with dignity and respect. As a Quality Systems specialist, I am passionate about creating efficiencies and integrity by leveraging best management practices. My respect for the environment, in part, was the foundation for Dualos, eliminating waste in materials, money and human energy. As a child, my dad took me on scavenger hunts to help pull nails and find other materials that could be reclaimed for re-use. Because of this intrigue and passion, my first two employment opportunities were at recycling centers. These experiences lead me to understand the importance of eliminating waste and protecting the environment.

Having a strong passion in the scientific world, I recognize the necessity of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs for students, and I take every opportunity to support our communities.

Increasing the workforce by employing veterans and Native Americans to fulfill the growth potential of Dualos is my primary objective while becoming even more sustainable and ecologically responsible.”

Our Partners

When Nancy Papineau founded this woman owned and Native American owned small business in 2008, she had three goals in mind:

  1. Help support her family
  2. Help her daughters and granddaughters understand the benefits of hard work and endurance
  3. Help the community by supporting economic growth and creating jobs.

From the beginning of Dualos, it has been important for Nancy to maintain a work environment that helps feed the minds of her employees so that each one has the opportunity for personal growth, and is empowered to be a visionary while helping the company achieve its community goals.

The amount of time, energy and money Dualos employees give back to our communities is something we are extremely proud of. We are dedicated to give back to the areas where we have a presence. Our focus is to support high quality education in the areas of math, science and art.

Quality is at the absolute core in all we do and touch. It is the key differentiator that separates Dualos from other small businesses. Dualos built its business plan on a quality management system (QMS) philosophy from the beginning. The QMS streamlines and dictates our processes, therefore giving consistent and traceable quality, which promises larger benefits for every aspect of the business.

If one were to summarize “Why Dualos?” all indicators would point to the ethical, generous, community and environmentally aware company philosophy. Our customer service and predictable reliability knows no bounds. The well-known but unspoken motto of ‘always do what is right,’ is forefront of this company’s ethical foundation. Dualos understands that people matter and so does their word.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give
