Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement

Ultraframe (UK) Ltd designs and manufactures bespoke glazed and solid roofing systems and other building products for conservatories, orangeries and single storey extensions. Products are sold to homeowners via a network of fabricators, trade intermediaries and retail installers.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps Ultraframe (UK) Ltd have taken to identify associated risk and to ensure, as far as is practicable, that Modern Slavery is not taking place in its own business or supply chains.

Modern slavery can take various forms such as servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Ultraframe (UK) Ltd continues to engender a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery through training and communication.

We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and endeavour to have transparency in all of our business dealings and relationships.  We are also committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure, as much as possible that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our business or supply chains, consistent with the Act. 

WHISTLEBLOWING POLICY

Ultraframe encourage all employees or any other individuals working for or on behalf of the company to raise concerns about irregular practices and situations at work which could place Ultraframe or individuals associated with Ultraframe in a vulnerable position. These concerns might relate to suspected criminal activity, possible unlawful conduct of fellow employees, modern day slavery, health and safety matters and environmental issues.

The Board are committed to the effectiveness of this policy, and provide reassurances that if an employee has a genuine concern they will not suffer any form of retribution as a result of raising the concern.

RECRUITMENT

Ultraframe has a thorough recruitment and selection process. This includes ensuring that appropriate identity checks are carried out in order to ensure that all new employees are eligible to work in the UK.

AGENCY

Ultraframe engage with reputable employment agencies that comply with the Agency Workers Regulations and carry out appropriate checks to establish that workers are eligible to work in the UK.

PAY

All employees are paid directly into a personal bank or building society account in their name.

SUPPLY CHAIN

The company also expects the same high standards from all of its suppliers, contractors and other business partners and as part of its contracting processes, has included specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and expects that its suppliers will in turn hold their own suppliers to the same standard.

A high level risk assessment has been conducted and some tier 1 suppliers identified as operating in a high risk area. Dialogue and visits have been undertaken and no evidence of Modern Slavery found.

Identification of new suppliers includes confirmation that (to the best of their knowledge) modern slavery is not present in their operation or supply chain. 

Working with our current suppliers, supplemental to the supplier audits, we are seeking their assurance that they operate ethically and responsibly and recording that confirmation, as appropriate, on our data capture system.

COMMITMENT FROM THE BOARD

Ultraframe (UK) Ltd is committed to continually improving our policies and procedures to assist in the eradication of Slavery from the modern world.

 Approved by the Board of Directors on the 23rd April 2019 for the financial year 1st November 2017 – 31st October 2018.

Signed on behalf of the Board of Directors.
