Re: Conflict Minerals
Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for your inquiry regarding the new "Conflict Minerals" rule ("the rule") finalized on August 22, 2012, by the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) as directed by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. The final rule only applies directly to companies required to report to the SEC under Sections 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act.
Randall Bearings purchases materials from a variety of sources. As the seller of machined parts from materials produced by another company, Randall Bearings is dependent upon them to certify compliance to the rule. After engaging in due diligence with our suppliers we are not aware of the inclusion of any covered conflict minerals in our products that would require a finding of "non DRC conflict minerals free." We will continue working with our suppliers as necessary to assure that our products remain DRC conflict-free.
Thank you for the opportunity to address your concerns regarding the SEC's Conflict Minerals Rule. We appreciate your business.
Senior Manufacturing Manager
