Bribery is the offering, promising, giving, accepting or soliciting of an advantage as a reward for action which is illegal or a breach of trust.  This includes accepting anything of material value to gain a commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage.

It is our code to conduct all our business in an honest and ethical manner.  We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.  We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery.

This code applies to all individuals working at all levels, including senior managers, officers, employees (whether permanent or temporary), consultants, contractors, trainees, or interns.  You must notify Senior Management as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with or breach of this code has incurred or may occur in the future.

Grand Traverse Plastics is a manufacturer of close tolerance plastic injection molded components and assemblies. We are dedicated to carrying out this responsibility in a manner that demonstrates true leadership in environmental management while continuing to provide the highest level of service to our customers. We will demonstrate our commitment to this policy through:

  • Energy Management Improvement and Environmental Risk Reduction – We will identify, minimize and prevent pollution and reduce identified hazards and risks in areas attributed to our operations, wherever feasible,
  • Continual Improvement – We will continue to seek out ways to improve our environmental performance throughout the organization, and
  • Regulatory Compliance – We will meet or exceed applicable and relevant regulatory requirements and other industry standards/guidelines to which we subscribe.

This policy will be conveyed to all Grand Traverse Plastics’ employees and onsite contractors and made available to the public or other interested parties upon request.
