CONFLICT MINERALS DECLARATION
Ahresty Wilmington Corporation requests that you its suppliers increase your focus on obtaining and reporting complete smelter information. In this case, ‘complete’ is defined as obtaining identification of all smelters/refiners in your relevant supply chain as dictated by the final rule (have 3TG).

Therefore, Ahresty Wilmington Corporation must continue to require our global supply chain to report on Conflict Minerals usage, regardless of where the components and materials are purchased.

There has been an amendment to U.S. federal legislation which affects manufacturing industries. Under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, manufacturers who file certain reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are required to disclose whether the products that they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain “conflict minerals” that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of those products.
“Conflict minerals” refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The intent of these requirements is to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and in surrounding countries, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of conflict minerals.
