On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law. The Dodd-Frank Act and related U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules require certain companies to disclose the extent to which the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain commonly referenced conflict minerals (Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Gold, also known as 3TG) sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries where the revenues of the 3TG minerals may be directly or indirectly financing armed groups engaged in civil war resulting in serious social and environmental abuses.
While Springfield Electric is not subject to SEC reporting, we fully support compliance with this legislation and our position is to avoid the use of conflict minerals.
Springfield Electric fully understands the importance of this issue to its customers and is committed to supply chain initiatives and overall corporate social responsibility and sustainability efforts that work towards a conflict free supply chain. We are encouraging all of our suppliers to likewise support these efforts and make information on the origin of their product components easily accessible.
While Springfield Electric, as a distributor, is not able to certify as to the country of origin of the minerals contained in the products manufactured by all of our suppliers, we are working to gather statements from our key suppliers regarding their conflict mineral policies. Please click on the links below to review the current information available from our suppliers.
Below are links to our manufacturers' Conflict Minerals Statements that have been shared with us.
If there is a manufacturer that you find a statement for & would like added to this list or one that you cannot find, please email us.
