Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure And Report
Gentex Corporation (“Gentex”) designs and manufactures automatic-dimming rearview mirrors and electronics for the automotive industry, dimmable aircraft windows for the aviation industry, and commercial smoke alarms and signaling devices for the fire protection industry.
Gentex has determined that conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold) are necessary to the functionality or production of certain products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by it. As such, Gentex has conducted, in good faith, a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding such conflict minerals that was reasonably designed to determine whether any of those conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country or were from recycled or scrap sources.
Gentex has exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in its in-scope products that conforms to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (Second Edition 2013), including the related Supplements.
