We have teamed up with Ege WorkSmart Solutions to promote an ergonomically safe environment for our employees here at Crandall Stats and Sensors. Ege WorkSmart Solutions has provided us with their Stretch It Out!® program, which was developed by Scott Ege, a licensed physical therapist and ergonomics specialist. Our twice daily group stretching helps prevent injuries here at work. Crandall Stats and Sensors also utilizes Ege WorkSmart Solutions for a program called Early Intervention. Russ Morgan is an Early Intervention Specialist with Ege WorkSmart Solutions. He is also a Certified Athletic Trainer with over 20 years of orthopedic experience. Russ visits with our employees once a month to provide first-aid interventions that may be needed to keep an “ache from becoming a pain”. He also provides guidance regarding ergonomics and general wellness of our workforce. We feel this is a valuable benefit to our employees and the company.
Adam Bohn, a Howard D. Colman Scholar, is attending college after spending the summer as an Intern for Crandall Stats and Sensors. The Howard D. Colman Scholar Intern Program is part of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. Adam brought a wealth of knowledge, experience and energy to our operation! Mr. Bohn spent time on RoHS compliance and 3-D printing of parts. He also created work instructions for the 3-D printer, designed and printed fixtures, worked on Polka-Yoke concepts, worked with the Quality Function to calibrate torque drivers, and wrote HAAS CNC Mill operating instructions and programs. We wish Adam every success with his college career and look forward to seeing him here in Rockford as an outstanding design engineer!

Conflict Minerals Policy Statement As required by the Dodd-Frank Act, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has adopted rules requiring publicly traded companies to disclose whether they use conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country and if so, to issue a report identifying their products that are not conflict free and their due diligence efforts to determine the country of origin and chain of custody of the metals. Conflict free means the product does not contain conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finances or benefits armed groups in the DRC or an adjoining country. The definition of "conflict minerals" refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate additional minerals in the future. Crandall Stats and Sensors, Inc. is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and is opposed to human rights abuses. As part of that commitment, Crandall Stats and Sensors, Inc. seeks to source products, components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility. Crandall Stats and Sensors, Inc. requires our suppliers to exercise due diligence to investigate the source of those minerals. That includes providing us with completed conflict minerals declarations using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. We are working with our suppliers so that they respond in a timely manner to our requests for evidence of compliance. In the future, our suppliers' willingness to comply with this initiative could be a factor in our sourcing decisions. We will continue to evaluate our policies and collaborate with other companies to share information and approaches that aid with rule compliance.
