California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) and the UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015 require companies doing business in California and the United Kingdom, respectively, to disclose actions (if any) taken to address, prevent and avoid the issues of slavery and human trafficking.
Sukup Manufacturing Co. respects human rights and strives to comply with all applicable laws. As a grain storage and handling manufacturer, Sukup’s main supply chain involves steel for manufacturing into finished goods. Sukup believes this type of supply chain is not inherently susceptible to violations of slavery and human trafficking laws and Sukup strives to utilize as much North American supply chain as we can. Thus, while Sukup has not undertaken action with the intent of specifically addressing California Civil Code Sections 1714.43(c)(1) – (c)(5) or enacted any policies specifically addressing modern slavery and human trafficking, Sukup recognizes and respects all labor and employment laws, including those addressing slavery and human trafficking, wherever Sukup operates.
Obeying all applicable laws is the foundation on which Sukup’s business ethics standards are built and we expect that our employees as well as vendors and suppliers are committed to that as well. Further, Sukup takes seriously all potential legal or ethics violations and expects all employees to comply with our policies and to actively engage against any violations by reporting suspected violations to their supervisors or human resources representatives. Any concerns about human rights, forced labor, human trafficking or slavery may be raised by contacting by HumanResources@sukup.com, an employee’s supervisor, or Sukup Corporate Counsel.
