Disclosure statement pursuant to California transparency in supply chains act of 2010

Wells Vehicle Electronics supports the right of all individuals to be free from slavery in the workplace. Wells Vehicle Electronics abhors the practice of human trafficking and slavery and applauds efforts being made globally to eliminate this practice. Wells Vehicle Electronics includes in its contracts with suppliers a requirement that they comply with all laws applicable to the business being transacted.

By signing a purchase order or contract, the supplier certifies that it conducts business pursuant to laws related including, but not limited to, laws that prohibit slavery and human trafficking. A supplier's failure to honor its independent legal and contractual commitment to Wells Vehicle Electronics is a violation of law and breach of the contract. Wells Vehicle Electronics sources its raw materials and other inputs with reputable companies with high standards. As such, Wells Vehicle Electronics does not believe that additional verification or independent audit is necessary to continue to deliver our customers a quality product manufactured with integrity.
