Minerals are the backbone of the modern world as we know it.
From MP3 players to cell phones, from jewelry to laptops, ores, and the metals that are eventually extracted from them – they make our 21st-century lifestyle a reality.
Established in 1965, Ed Fagan Inc. has been a vital pumping point of alloys and metals to the manufacturing and production industries of North America. Our promise of quality, reliability in delivering stocks to the most inaccessible locations, huge and varied inventory and just-in-time shipping efficiency are all facets of Ed Fagan’s competence and thus our calling cards.
Ed Fagan procures Controlled Expansion Alloys, Electrical/Electronic Nickel, Soft Magnetic Alloys, and Refractory Metals and Alloys in sheets, bars, rods, wires and foils to serve the Aerospace/Aviation, Defense, Electronics, Magnetic, Medical, Lighting, Optical, Telecommunications, Ceramics, and Heat Treating sectors.
Even though our company’s area of operation brings us in close contact with invasive processes to obtain natural resources, we are fully aware of our social responsibility and steer clear of conflict minerals in its supply chains.
What are Conflict Minerals?
Conflict minerals are precious or semi-precious ores that are sold by rebelling groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo for the aggravation of the terrorist and militant activities in the region.
The 3 T’s of cassiterite (for tin), wolframite (for tungsten), coltan (for tantalum) together with gold ore are cheaply excavated and then supplied to first and second world industries to fuel violence through the purchase of arms.
As per the 2010 Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, each and every manufacturer and procurer in the country is required to carry out a mandatory audit of its mills and suppliers to ensure that conflict minerals are not a part of the chain. This is a major step in the direction of successfully defusing the volatile conditions in Congo because without funds the perpetuation of conflict is not possible.
Ed Fagan Has Done Our Part:
Even though its suppliers form a serpentine network of multiple touch points around the globe, Ed Fagan has carefully probed each mill and found no involvement or use of conflict minerals in the end products.
The company continues to be one of the most highly sought-after providers of custom metals and alloys that have made a stand against the atrocities in Congo.
