Proteus Industries’ manufacturing operations are partially open to service essential businesses including Medical and Semiconductor as part of the government’s “shelter in place” order for the San Francisco Bay Area to contain coronavirus. We are checking e-mails including tech and customer service e-mails. The order currently covers the period of March 17 through May 31st, 2020.
For customers, needing sales information please email at firstname.lastname@example.org and for tech support/questions we will respond through email@example.com . Vendors should contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that we will have limited operations through this period. Other urgent communications may be sent to our President, Jon Heiner at email@example.com. We apologize for the disruption this may cause.
United States government regulations require that companies that register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) report whether their products incorporate any “conflict minerals”. “Conflict minerals” are defined as tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold. If these are used, it is further required that reporting companies state if they are mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and bordering countries. If they are, there are further reporting requirements. Proteus Industries is committed to assisting our customers meet this legal requirement.
Accordingly, Proteus Industries will not knowingly purchase products incorporating conflict minerals from the area of conflict, and we require that our suppliers take reasonable actions to assure that their products supplied to Proteus Industries are free of these materials.
