Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (“Gibraltar” or “the Company”) has evaluated its current product lines and determined that certain products that we manufacture or contract to manufacture contain tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold, which are necessary to the functionality or production of the Company’s products into which these minerals have been incorporated. Rule 13p-1 established under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 defines these minerals as “conflict minerals” and "necessary conflict minerals" and, as a result, the Company is required to conduct in good faith, a reasonable country of origin inquiry with respect to the source of these minerals. Accordingly, Gibraltar is filing this disclosure, along with a Conflict Minerals Report, to disclose the measures we have taken to determine whether the conflict minerals used in our products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries.
Conflict Minerals Disclosure
The Company has engaged and is continuing to engage in a due diligence process, including surveying our direct suppliers via an industry-standard based survey template for conflict minerals, to try to determine the sources of the conflict minerals, used in our products and which are purchased through a complex supply chain.
Based on information provided by our suppliers and our due diligence efforts, we do not have sufficient information to conclusively determine the countries of origin of all the Necessary Conflict Minerals in the products described above or whether the Necessary Conflict Minerals were from recycled or scrap sources.
Item 1.02 Exhibit
The Conflict Minerals Report required by Item 1.01 is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form.
A copy of Gibraltar’s Conflict Minerals Report is filed as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available at www.gibraltar1.com under the heading “Investor Info” and the sub-heading “SEC filings” section.
