Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
We are committed to eliminating acts of modern-day slavery and human trafficking within our
business and from within our supply chains. Our annual turnover is under £36 million and
although we are not legally obliged to report on slavery and human trafficking, this statement
is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is our slavery
and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2022.
Organisational structure, business and supply chains
We are a manufacturer and supplier of security fencing and gates and are an independent
company. Our business comprises one manufacturing unit and associated head office
support based at the above address. Our supply chains are all UK wholesale or retail
suppliers of steel products, consumable materials, packaging materials, manufacturing
machinery and office supplies.
Policy on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any
part of our business or in our supply chains. This policy reflects our commitment to acting
ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and
enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not
taking place anywhere within our supply chains. Due diligence
We consider ourselves to be a ‘low risk’ business with regard to slavery and human trafficking.
However, we foster a culture that encourages the identification and reporting of any such
risks within our business. We recruit all our employees either directly or through recruitment
agencies who are members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. We do not
recruit from outside the UK. Assessing and managing risk
We have a whistleblowing policy in place and, as part of our efforts to identify and mitigate
risks within our supply chain, we are introducing systems to identify, assess and monitor
potential risk areas.
Effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure that all those in our
supply chains comply with our values we are putting in place a supply chain compliance
programme that will require our suppliers to confirm that they have a slavery and human
trafficking policy in place and that they require the same from their suppliers.
We are providing appropriate training to ensure that relevant employees understand
the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking within our business and supply
