Furnitubes' Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement & Policy

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps we have taken to ensure that our business as well as our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking during the financial year ending 31st December 2022.


BAMUK Group and our companies Contracts Engineering Ltd. and Furnitubes Ltd, are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking occurring in any of its corporate activities, as well as seeking to ensure that our supply chains are also free from such practices.

Nature of our supply chains

Our key supply chains involve buying steel and aluminium from European mills and stockists, buying FSC wood from British stockists, sourcing cast iron products from China via a UK agent, and we have a range of smaller suppliers.

Policies relating to slavery and human trafficking

Our Anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective procedures and controls to minimise the risks of human trafficking and other modern slavery practices infiltrating our business operations or supply chains, and to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business activities and relationships.

We ensure that our suppliers are aware of our policies and take appropriate measures to ensure that our suppliers adhere to the same high standards.

Our policies have been developed with support from MAKE UK, the country’s leading representative for manufacturing and engineering industries.

Risk assessment

We use the following processes and information/resources to assess which of our own activities and supply chains represent the highest risks in respect of slavery or human trafficking.

Through our ISO9001 requirements we audit many of our suppliers to ensure they comply. Furthermore, nearly all of our suppliers are large, established companies operating within the UK and the European Union, where compliance with anti-slavery is a legal requirement.

On the basis of these processes, we have identified the following activities and operations to be at highest risk of infiltration in relation to slavery and human trafficking.

Our highest risk activities are identified as coming from our cast iron product ranges at Furnitubes, and from fixings/small components suppliers at Contracts Engineering. These supply chains stretch out the furthest, and for components suppliers, we regularly need to find new suppliers based on our clients’ specifications.

We also seek to regularly review the operations of existing suppliers in relation to the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.

Monitoring of our anti-slavery policy

We continue to confirm with our suppliers that they adhere to best practices to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in theirs.

As part of our plans to strengthen our supply chains we will require all regular suppliers to confirm they adhere to modern anti-slavery laws, just as we ask them to confirm they comply with all other laws.

Future action

As a result of our assessment, we aim to continually review our supply chains to ensure that to the best of our knowledge, all suppliers comply with these laws.
