AIM Metals and Alloys Is Partnered with Conflict-Free Tin Initiative as Part of Global Effort
CRANSTON, RI –
AIM, a global manufacturer of solder assembly materials, announces its partnership with the Conflict-Free Tin Initiative, whose goal is to create regulated tin supply chains from the South-Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Initiative’s goal is to introduce a conflict-free supply chain that will renew the economy of the area since firms are reluctant to purchase any minerals from the region due to “conflict metal” regulations. The Initiative is supported by the U.S., Dutch and DCR governments along with 175 stakeholders representing various industries. The infrastructure has been put in place and the first purchase order from the secure mine site was placed in August of 2012. There is a traceability program that partners the supply chain together from the mine to the smelter that will ensure the legitimacy of the tin.

AIM stands with such firms as Philips Electronics, Intel, HP and Motorola in their commitment to the success of this pilot program and welcomes companies such as component manufacturers and end-users to join them since the success depends on industry participation.
