To our Vendors: Conflict Minerals disclosure Requirement of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502 (the “Conflict Minerals Law”)

Dear Value Supplier, 

As you may already know, in July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) was signed into law.  In addition to addressing financial regulatory reforms, the Act requires certain businesses, including some of our customers, to identify in reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission whether their products contain certain “conflict minerals” originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) and adjoining countries (an area comprising most of Central Africa).  In order for All-Pro Fasteners to accurately respond to our customers inquiries so they may produce such reports, we need a formal response from our suppliers with regards to (1) whether or not any of the materials or products supplied to or manufactured for All-Pro Fasteners contain any of the “conflict materials” and (2) if so, whether such “conflict materials” originated from the DRC or any adjoining countries.

To remain one of our valued suppliers, please complete and sign the attached Conflict Material Certification and return it to APF via the email address below.  Please click Conflict Mineral_Letter_Vendorto download the form.

If you have any questions or concerns, then please contact Todd Grzych at (817) 467-5700 or through email at

Thank you for your cooperation.


Sincerely yours,


Roderick L. Williams, Sr.
