Executive Summary

California-based distributor Flame Enterprises provides electro-mechanical products to the commercial aerospace and defense markets. The company prides itself on long-term price competitiveness and guarantees best in market delivery performance, enabling manufacturers to acquire the inventory they need to complete projects on time. Thus, Flame has become an indispensable asset to the aerospace and defense industries.

Having been in operation for more than 30 years, Flame is no stranger to federal regulations. Due to the growing landscape of regulations, including Dodd-Frank section 1502, Flame Enterprises found it dicult to stay up on regulatory compliance. For that reason, Flame partnered with Source Intelligence, the leading supply chain compliance platform to help ensure compliance with not just Dodd-Frank, but a myriad of additional regulations and standards.

David Boush, Flame's Vice President of Sales, noted that the stipulations within Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act pushed the organization's manpower to its limits. The company simply didn't have the human capital required to develop a conflict minerals due diligence program, much less confirm the origin of the raw materials sourced in their products.
