INT’L METALWORKING CO.       As a multinational group, we encourage IMC Members to promote local labor diversity and equal
                             opportunities, in strict compliance with local labor laws. We believe in motivating our teams for
                             excellence in their respective duties and in their own individual personal career paths.

                             We aim to provide our employees with benefits beyond the minimum legal requirements, to ensure
                             they are motivated to concentrate on their work. Our Human Resources and Safety departments
                             regularly collaborate to improve internal group policies ensuring a safe “hazard free” and
                             “harassment free” working environment.

                             IMC encourages the development of collegial, respectful and professional relationships amongst
                             its employees. IMC is committed to prevent cases of favoritism, bullying, abuse, and sexual
                             harassment. Such cases are treated with zero tolerance. They will be investigated and may result in
                             disciplinary action as well as legal consequences.
