Corporate Responsibility

Conflicts Minerals Sourcing Policy:


"Conflict minerals" originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are sometimes mined and sold by armed groups to "finance conflict characterized by extreme levels of violence." Some of these minerals and the metals created from them (such as tantalum, tin, and tungsten) can make their way into the supply chains of the products used around the world, including those in the machining industry. DMI's suppliers acquire and use minerals from multiple sources worldwide. As part of DMI's continued commitment to corporate responsibility, suppliers are expected to ensure that parts and products supplied to DMI are DRC conflict free (do not contain metals derived from "conflict minerals"; tantalum, tin, tungsten or their derivatives such that they directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country). DMI expects our suppliers to establish policies, due diligence frameworks and management systems consistent with the reporting guidelines set forth by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
