Intellectual Property

Innovation and the creation of a strong and long lasting competitive advantage cannot be reached without a proper management of intellectual property rights ( IPRs).

Among the IPRs, particular attention is also dedicated to know how and more in general to confidential information, as well as to trademarks and patents of our own IPRs or our customers.        

The protection of its IPR and where possible the creation of new IPR, thus fostering its competitive advantage, is therefore among Cleveland Die & Manufacturing core interest in the relationship with all its customers and suppliers.


DRC Conflict Free Policy

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) passed its proposed far-reaching draft regulation to implement the Conflict Mineral Law; this regulation was passed by the SEC on August 22, 2012. The law would require U.S. and foreign companies to report and make public the use of "conflict minerals" from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its adjoining countries. The 9 adjoining countries are: Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Congo Republic (a different nation than DRC), Angola, Sudan, Central African Republic, Zambia and Uganda.

Cleveland Die & MFG (CDM) supports worldwide concerns that metals mined in conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) may be making their way into the electronics supply chain.

CDM policy requires our supply chain partners to certify in writing that they do not knowingly procure Gold, Columbite-Tantalum, Wolframite or Cassiterite

from conflict areas of the DRC.

CDM is continually surveying our supply chain regarding sourcing and procurement of Gold,Columbite-Tantalum, Wolframite and Cassiterite as well with their derivatives Tin, Tungsten and Tantalum. Due to traceability issues and the lack of mines or smelters effectively participating in the regulation CDM cannot certify with 100% certainty that our supply chain is Conflict Free until supply chain transparency is more discernible.

We are committed to supporting our customers requirements with reference to the Conflict Mineral Law and all other programs concerned with protecting both users of our products and the environment.
