At Simpson Strong-Tie, we believe in doing what's right for our people, customers and community. As the trusted brand and manufacturer for construction solutions, we thrive on helping customers solve problems every day. We are all committed to bringing added value and to exceeding expectations with our "No Equal" performance.
Since 1956 we have designed, tested and manufactured safe, strong and innovative products for the construction industry. We acquire materials from suppliers around the world. Our finished products are used in residential and commercial construction, as well as infrastructure and industrial applications.
We design and test products to improve the performance and integrity of the structures they are installed in. This improved performance makes the structures more sustainable and often helps to save lives in natural disasters.
We conduct safety audits at our manufacturing facilities around the world. These audits assist our plant, warehouse and test lab management in understanding their health and safety requirements, and focus on implementing systems to continually improve in these areas. Out facilities have varying processes, depending upon the regulations in that country and the programs they have put in place.
Our facilities recycle many of the materials they use to reduce our impact on the environment.
Obsolete product literature and office paper waste is recycled, and company records are recycled annually as allowed by law. Our sales representatives use electronic devices in the field, reducing the need to carry printed literature. Our literature is also available online. Some of our facilities use eFax and eBilling solutions to reduce their paper consumption.

Code of Business Conduct and Ethics Policy
We expect that all of our employees, officers and directors will treat each other, our customers and our suppliers with goodwill, trust and respect. As a company we value honesty, high ethical standards and compliance with laws, rules and regulations.
Supply Chain Disclosure
We aim to ensure that everything we make or purchase is produced consistently with local law and our code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
Suppliers doing business with us should be committed to providing a healthy and safe worling environment, where workers are free from discrimination and intimidation; respecting both human rights and the environment. We seek to build and maintain long-term, mutually profitable and ethical supplier relationships.
We recognise that the extract and harvesting of some raw materials can have significant social and economic impact - both positive and negative, and we endeavour to identify and limit the materials in our supply chain that pose negative implications. In particular we are concerned with materials that come from regions of the world in conflict. We intend to inform our suppliers of our concerns in this area and ask them to work to provide us only materials that have been procured though a validated supply chain, so as to ensure that they have not, at any point, financed conflict.
