The Hi-Tech Seals Code of Conduct outlines expected behaviors for all employees. Hi-Tech Seals will conduct its business fairly, impartially, in an ethical and proper manner, and in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. In conducting our business, integrity must underlie all company relationships, including those with customers, suppliers, communities and among employees. The highest standards of ethical business conduct are required of Hi-Tech employees in the performance of their company responsibilities. Employees will not engage in conduct or activity that may raise questions as to the company’s honesty, impartiality, reputation or otherwise cause embarrassment to the company.


Employees will ensure that:
  • Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. We are honest, ethical and upfront because trust is at the foundation of our relationships with our customers, our communities, our stakeholders and each other.
  • They refrain from participating in any activity that is in conflict with the interests of Hi-Tech Seals or would damage Hi-Tech Seals’ reputation.
  • They will respect and safeguard the confidentiality of information which is available or known to them by reason of their official functions.
  • They observe that fair dealing is the foundation for all of our transactions and interactions.
  • They treat colleagues, whether supervisors, peers, or subordinates, with courtesy and respect, without harassment, or physical or verbal abuse. Employees should at all times avoid behavior at the workplace that, although not rising to the level of harassment or abuse, may nonetheless create an atmosphere of hostility or intimidation.
  • The diversity of the Company’s employees is a tremendous asset. We are firmly committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and will not tolerate any discrimination or harassment based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin or any other protected class.
  • Without exception, employees will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
  • They will avoid any situation involving a conflict, or the appearance of a conflict, between their personal interests and performance of their official duties. In dealings with suppliers, and other parties, employees should act in the best interest of the Company to the exclusion of any personal advantage.
  • Every employee has the responsibility to ask questions, seek guidance and report suspected violations of this Code of Conduct. Retaliation against employees who come forward to raise genuine concerns will not be tolerated.


In respect to our code of conduct, Hi-Tech Seals practices the proper legislation surrounding the raw material mining process and makes sure that all of the products we supply are conflict free.


Conflict Free Materials

Armed conflict and human rights concerns in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Burundi, the Central Africa Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Sudan (South Sudan), Tanzania, and Zambia have drawn attention to the raw material mining practices within these regions. Related materials include Tantalum, Tin, Gold, and Wolframite (Tungsten).

Many companies and nations have taken a stand on the conflict by refusing to use these “conflict minerals”. Recent US legislation, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, has banned the use of conflict minerals from being supplied within the United States. Hi-Tech Seals certifies those products supplied by our company are conflict free.
