Tex Corp Limited is a vertically integrated zipper and button manufacturing multinational company having its factories in India, Bangladesh and Vietnam.
A zipper is worth its weight in gold between fabric arrival and planned-cut-date. And worthless before and after.We’ll get you your zippers in that brief time window, and provide unmatched customer service after. No matter where you are.
Tex Zippers will get there before you plan to cut your fabric.
Tex is a socially conscious manufacturer of zippers. In our product range we also offer metal zippers, which contain brass and zinc. If any traces of tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold are detected, then it is part of the impurity present in the ore itself. Tex Corp Limited officials will continually survey our supply base to ensure that the sources of the supply chain are known.
BACKGROUND EXPLAINING THE REGULATION AROUND CONFLICT MINERALS
Militias and armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have taken control of parts of the metal supply-chain in Africa. This primarily affects Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum and Gold (Known as 3T+G). Section 1502 of the DoddFrank Act is intended to make transparent the financial interests that support armed groups in the DRC area. By requiring companies using conflict minerals in their products to disclose the source of such minerals, the law is aimed at dissuading companies from continuing to engage in trade that supports regional conflicts.
ZIPPERS AND 3T+G
Zippers are typically made from polyester, brass (an alloy of copper and zinc) and zinc. 3T+G are not integral parts of the zipper manufacturing process, but sometimes find their way into the supply-chain in electroplating applications, particularly. Tin is sometimes used to impart a special finish to sliders, particularly in metallic zippers.
TEX AND 3T+G
Tex has a complete visibility of it’s supply-chain to remain compliant with CPSIA, REACH and other restricted substance rules. Visibility of the supply-chain and 100% fully owned factories are critical for ensuring compliance with all these laws.Since Tex’s factories are fully owned, and has a transparent supply-chain, Tex finds it easy to comply with the Conflict Minerals rule.
