Quality matters to us.
We believe an important part of providing high-quality products, which consistently meet or exceed our customer's expectations, is to maintain and continually improve our Quality Management System. Read our Quality Policy.
InterMotive is ISO 9001:2015 certified by the International Standards Organization to assure customers that all our products follow our strict Quality Operating System. View our ISO Certificate.
InterMotive is aware of and concerned that mining operations, specifically in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (and adjoining countries) have been determined to be funding “armed militias” directly responsible for wide spread human rights violations.
As a result, in July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Act was passed requiring companies listed on the U.S. stock exchange to report annually to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) a list of any products that were produced with minerals sourced from this area of concern, as well as disclose any measures taken to eliminate these so-called “conflict minerals” (specifically: tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten) from their supply chain.
Although we are a privately held company, we are doing our part. InterMotive takes very seriously its responsibility to ensure that metals mined in the Democrat Republic of the Congo do not find their way into our supply chain process. Accordingly, as part of the vendor selection process, we have added language to our Vendor Approval Survey that provides notice to each InterMotive supplier of company expectations regarding our collective social responsibility in this matter.
We feel it is incumbent upon each of our vendors to promote and maintain the supply chain integrity that our customers demand by ensuring ongoing compliance with the policy requirements stated within the relative legislation. As such, it is expected of all InterMotive vendors who incorporate metals in products supplied to our customers to trace and map their own supply chain to their smelters, seeking only to source materials from non-conflict regions.
Should we become aware of a vendor whose supply chain includes metals from a conflict region source, InterMotive will take appropriate action to remedy the situation expediently, including reassessment of supplier relationships.
