In August 2012, the Federal Agency responsible for supervising financial markets in the USA (the SEC) published implementing regulations from Section 1502 of the “Dodd-Frank Wall Street and Consumer Protection Act” in relation to the use of “conflict mineral”.
The four conflict minerals are gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten, which are associated with the regional financial violence and the civil war that persist in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighbouring countries where income from minerals can directly or indirectly fund armed groups that participate in civil wars, causing serious social and environmental problems.

To manufacture our products, we use an extensive range of raw materials, including easy-to-machine steels, special steels, stainless steels, brass, aluminium and bronze. In the case of materials that contain conflict minerals and which are necessary for the manufacture of our products, we are committed to being provided with materials and supplies from companies that share our ethical values and integrity with regard to human rights and environmental responsibility.
INDUSTRIAS TEIXIDÓ, S.A. works to implement global efforts in sustainability and corporate responsibility with the aim of achieving a supply chain free of conflict minerals.
