Conflict Minerals Policy

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a final ruling regarding the sourcing of “conflict minerals” under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Act. This requires specified disclosures with respect to conflict minerals (cassiterite, columbite-tantalite [coltan], gold, wolframite and three specified derivatives: tantalum, tin, and tungsten) which may have originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or any of the DRC’s adjoining countries in products manufactured by ThermX Southwest.

ThermX does not source conflict minerals directly from smelters or mines. However, ThermX evaluates its product line to determine which components of its products supplied by third parties may contain tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold. When ThermX determines a third-party component contains any of these minerals, it surveys the suppliers of the product component on their sourcing, using an industry-approved survey for conflict minerals.

ThermX supports the objective of preventing armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries from benefitting from sourcing of conflict minerals from that region. ThermX is committed to responsible conflict-free sourcing and to working with its suppliers to ensure they share this philosophy and are engaged in responsible conflict-free sourcing.
