Techbuyer Ltd and Techbuyer Group Holdings have a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking. They are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in their supply chains or in any part of their business.

Techbuyer Group Holdings had a global annual turnover of over £41 million in our 2019/2020 financial year. We have over 180 employees across the group and operates in the United Kingdom, USA, France, Germany,  Australia and New Zealand.

Techbuyer Ltd and Techbuyer Group Holdings  anti-slavery policy reflects our promise to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not occurring anywhere in our supply chains.  Techbuyer also has a whistleblowing policy in place in the Staff Handbook whereby we document what protections and support we have in place for whistle-blowers.

Our supply chains and supplier adherence to Techbuyer Ltd/Group holdings relationships with all suppliers have been established over some years and are built upon mutually beneficial factors. We have close and personal links and contact with the owners or directors, reflecting the fact that we partner with small and medium-sized operations in the main.

When we appoint new contractors or suppliers, we pre-qualify them through a due diligence process. We look at company performance and get references from other customers to establish that they are suitable.

To date, we haven’t been made aware of any human trafficking or slavery activities within the supply chain. However, if any were highlighted to us, we would act immediately in accordance with our legal and moral obligations.

  • Protect whistle-blowers.

This statement will be reviewed annually, and a new statement issued at the end of each financial year.
