Conflict Minerals Statement

We are an electronic distributor and are not able to determine the origin of all products that we sell. We must rely on the manufacturers we represent to provide us with that information. As a result, we survey our component manufacturers as to their level of compliance and ask them to notify us of products that may contain “conflict minerals”. Should we be notified that a part contains “conflict minerals”, we will contact customers who have purchased and/or have open orders for that product. Links to manufacturer’s statements on this matter can be found at the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) website.
