Modern Slavery Act

Slavery and human trafficking remain a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns and we will act on them. We are a manufacturer of high integrity cast and machined components in various anti-corrosion, metallic alloy grades. The group has its head office in the UK and all trading outlets are in the UK, with an annual turnover of circa £30m, with circa 15% being exported to Europe and North America. Our supply chain consists of sourcing raw materials, related to the ingot manufacturing industry and machine shops concerned with the forming of metal from cast shapes. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business. This policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking.

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk –

  1. We have a robust employment policy that promotes for equality and diversity.
  2. With regards to national or international supply chains, our contact is with first world, developed organisations, predominantly in the UK, Europe and North America. We expect these entities to have anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes.
  3. We have systems in place to encourage the reporting of concerns while remaining anonymous.

 

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES

We have zero tolerance of slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values.

We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been at ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business and supply chains:

  1. Use of labour monitoring and payroll systems.
  2. The level of communication and personal contact within our supply chain, and their understanding of and compliance with, our expectations.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group’s slavery and human trafficking statement pursuant to our financial year ending June 2019.
