*** HANDLING CONFLICT MATERIALS ***
Dear Sir or Madam,
For us as a publicly listed company, we give put great emphasis on the transparent handling of suppliers and customers. With this note we would like to inform you about our dealing with so-called "conflict minerals".
The US Dodd-Frank Act requires US listed companies and others to annually disclose whether they use "conflict minerals" originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its neighboring countries (Angola, Burundi, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Zambia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Central African Republic). The raw materials tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten are regarded as “conflict materials”, if their extraction and trade in these raw materials contribute to the financing or other support of armed groups in this region. These substances can only be used in processed form as aggregates in metals, in surface finishes or in electronic components.
We source such precursors, some of which we use to design and manufacture our machine systems, exclusively through reliable suppliers who enjoy our long earned trust. We are currently not aware that these supply materials from the aforementioned countries and we have no reason to assume so.
As a user of materials, we have no influence on the origin of materials used by our suppliers. Thus, we can assume no responsibility whatsoever in this regard. We commit our suppliers to provide traceability and transparency of their products. Many of our suppliers provide information on material quality and origin on their websites.
Please understand that due to the high number of inquiries we cannot fill out any special questionnaires. However, we hope that this letter contains the information you requested and thank you for your trust.
