Optimas Manufacturing is committed to ensuring that we are not sourcing minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold) that directly or indirectly support or fund inhumane treatment. This includes human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, child labor, torture and war crimes, and sources that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries. We do not ban sourcing of minerals from this region because such a policy may harm legitimate miners. We are taking steps across our entire supply chain to carry out a reasonable country of origin inquiry on the products we manufacture.
We expect suppliers and sub-suppliers to have a policy in place and implement a system to trace the origin of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold and our suppliers and sub-suppliers are encouraged to report any ethical concerns or policy violations. If any external business partner has challenges in complying with our expectation, we will attempt to work to address these challenges.
