Conflict Mineral Policy

scrap-company1We source all our metals from a supply chain that uses a combination of recycled scrap metal and pure aluminum or zinc alloyed with additives.  These additives may include silicon, strontium, manganese, titanium, copper, or nickel  depending on the specific requirements of your product.   Both Aluminum and Zinc are recyclable indefinitely without the loss of chemical or physical properties making them two of the most environmentally friendly materials to use in the manufacturing process.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 requires that companies report on the chain of custody for certain metals.  The act covers columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, and wolframite.  These minerals are sourced for the production of tantalum, tin, and tungsten.  The act requires that we report if the metals extracted from these minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of any products we manufacture.  If so, we are to disclose if any of the minerals are “Conflict Minerals Originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).”

The aluminum and zinc alloys we use do not include these “Conflict Minerals” or the metals derived from them.  These metals are not necessary to the functionality or production of our parts.  We do not source minerals or metals from the DRC or surrounding nations in Africa.
