Terms & Conditions of Sale

  1. Application of these conditions
    These conditions override any terms or conditions stipulated, incorporated or referred to by the Buyer in its order, negotiations, correspondence or other documentation of whatsoever kind unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company. No order shall become binding until accepted by a duly authorised representative of the Company.
  2. Right to vary price
    The Company may at the time prior to the delivery of the whole or any part of the Goods increase the price of any Goods not then delivered by giving notice in writing of such an increase not less than seven days before delivery in which event the Buyer shall have the option to either accept the new price or cancel the order verbally or in writing.
  3. Dates for delivery
    Any date quoted for delivery of the Goods ordered is given in good faith but is approximate only and time of delivery is not of the essence of the Contract.
  4. Use with commodity
    If the Goods are required for use with any commodity, the Buyer shall satisfy itself that the Goods ordered will not adversely affect, or be adversely affected by, that commodity. If the Goods are required for processing of any kind the Buyer shall satisfy itself that the Goods ordered are suitable for such processing.
  5. Loss or damage

  6. Materials supplied for processing
    A Buyer sending its own materials to the Company for processing shall at its own expense insure such materials against loss or damage by fire whilst on the Company's premises. The Company accepts no liability for any loss incurred by a Buyer whose materials are found unsuitable for the processing specified.
  7. Rescission and suspension
    The Company shall be entitled (without prejudice to its other rights against the Buyer) by notice in writing to the Buyer, to rescind any contract between the Company and the Buyer or to suspend delivery should the Buyer be in breach of any of its contractual obligations or should the Buyer enter into any agreement with or for the benefit of its creditors, have a Receiving Order in bankruptcy made against him or (if a corporate body) go into liquidation either voluntary or compulsory or under supervision or have a receiver, administrator or administrative receiver appointed of the whole or any part of its assets or carry out or undergo an analogous act or proceedings under foreign law.
  8. Defective Goods
    The Company shall not be liable:
    1. to replace any Goods which arrive in a physically damaged condition or with an apparent defect unless the Goods are signed for accordingly and a claim is made in writing within three days of delivery specifying the defect in detail;
    2. in respect of any other defect in the Goods unless it appears within three months of delivery thereof and is a defect in materials or workmanship which has arisen under their proper and normal use and maintenance and the Buyer has informed the Company in writing within seven days of the date when such defect appeared or ought reasonably to have been discoverable specifying the defect in detail.
    3. Any goods deemed to be faulty must be clearly identified with their original reel number and stored inside in a suitable location until collected. On collection the items must be suitably wrapped and packaged for transportation.

    1. Except as expressly provided in conditions 5 and 8 and subject only to condition 9(b), the Company shall not be liable for any expense, loss, damage or other liability whatsoever whether direct or consequential arising out of or otherwise in connection with the Goods.

    2. Nothing contained in these Conditions shall purport to exclude or restrict any liability the exclusion or restriction of which is prohibited by Section 2(1) and Section 6(1) of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 provided however that this condition 9(b) shall not apply to any such contract as is described in Section 26(3) of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.
  10. Indemnity
    The Buyer shall indemnify the Company and keep the Company fully and effectively indemnified against any and all actions, proceedings, costs, claims, demands, expenses, liabilities, losses or other matters whatsoever (including, but not limited to, any liability of the Company to any third party whether for loss of or damage to property or injury to or death of any person) arising out of or in consequence of or in respect of the manufacture of the Goods or any part of the Goods or the application of any process to the Goods or any part of the Goods in accordance with or in compliance with any specification submitted by, or any instruction given by, or any design of, the Buyer..
  11. Disputed claims and set-off
    The Buyer shall not be entitled to withhold payment of any amount payable under a contract with the Company because of any disputed claim by the Buyer in respect of faulty Goods or any other alleged breach of contract, nor shall the Buyer be entitled to set off against any amount payable under a contract with the Company any monies which are not then presently payable by the Company or for which the Company disputes liability.
  12. Risk
    From the time of delivery the Goods shall be at the Buyer's risk who shall be solely responsible for their custody and maintenance but, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, title to the Goods shall remain with the Company until all payments to be made by the Buyer:
    (i) under the Contract for such Goods; and
    (ii) under any other contract between the Company and the Buyer and on any account whatsoever have been made in full and unconditionally. (Whilst the Company's ownership continues the Buyer shall keep the Goods labelled as belonging to the Company and separate and identifiable from all other goods in its possession on a fiduciary basis as bailee for the Company.) The Buyer shall notify the Company immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in condition 7. If before title to the Goods passes to the Buyer the Buyer becomes subject to any of the events listed condition 7 or the Company reasonably believes that any such event is about to happen and notifies the Buyer accordingly, then, provided that the Goods have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product, and without limiting any other right or remedy the Company may have, the Company may at any time require the Buyer to deliver up the Goods and, if the Buyer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Buyer or any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.
