Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Reviewed 17th December, 2020
The statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Langley Holdings plc is a diverse, privately owned engineering and industrial group based in the UK with principal operating divisions located in Germany, Italy and France and more than 80 subsidiaries worldwide. The group's companies produce equipment ranging from electrical systems for data centres, machinery for cement and steel plants to food packaging lines, automotive welding equipment and printing presses.
Our long standing Group philosophy commits us to carrying out our business with the utmost integrity and to the highest ethical standards. It follows that modern slavery is not knowingly tolerated within our business dealings either with suppliers or customers.
Over 90% of our manufacturing is carried out in Western Europe and North America and our supply chain is predominantly in the same regions. What we do purchase or subcontract is subject to stringent quality control and traceability. We manufacture and sell highly engineered equipment to Industrial customers with 80% of them located in Western Europe, North America and Australasia. Slavery is not prevalent in the markets and industries in which we operate.
Having reviewed the Global Slavery Index, we are confident that the overall risk of our exposure to Modern Slavery is low. We will continue to run the business in a manner proportionate to our perceived risk and in high risk countries where we do have customers and/or suppliers, we will seek specific assurances with regard to their own working practices. If we have cause for concern we will take appropriate action, this ultimately may result in severing relationships with entities that do not meet the necessary standards under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
