STORMTECH is firmly committed to selling products that are manufactured under legal, safe, and fair working conditions in factories where employees are treated fairly.

Our Ethical Sourcing Policy is designed to ensure that our global sourcing supply chain operates in compliance to STORMTECH’s requirements and all applicable laws governing issues such as child labor, forced labor, wages, benefits, working hours, harassment, health and safety and factory security.

It is mandatory for all STORMTECH suppliers to agree and adhere to the STORMTECH Supplier Workplace Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct is enforced through our social compliance process. We monitor each supplier for social compliance on a periodic basis at the required frequency based on the risk assessment and prior audit findings. Stormtech’s supply chain is built on strong, transparent, and trusted partnerships. Over the years STORMTECH has developed a very strong global sourcing network that is based on long term partnership and business relationships.

Our supply chain contains nominated TIER 2 textile mills and TIER 1 garment/bags/accessories suppliers, that can manufacture just about any product.

Compliance assessments for both tiers suppliers are executed on regular basis and that includes factories assessment on social compliance, fire and electrical safety, structural building safety, security, etc.

All active suppliers’ facilities used for STORMTECH orders are audited regularly by reputable and credible third-party monitoring organizations, mandated by the Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production (WRAP), Fair Labor Association (FLA), Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and by several other certified monitoring organizations.

Our responsible sourcing practices require pre-qualifying of new factories before commencing work. Most of the manufacturing partners in our supply chain are BSCI and WRAP certified and many other factories are certified by ISO, FLA,QCA, among other key associations.
