Terms & Conditions

1. Making the Contract

Your order is an invitation to supply; we will consider it only on the basis that you waive any terms in it which are inconsistent with ours. Receipt of your order whether in writing, fax or telephone call makes the contact.

Our acknowledgement of order (if applicable) is an offer to sell only the goods identified in it at those prices and on those terms. As it is based on your order, it will be treated as accepted and the contract made unless we receive your written cancellation within four working days of its receipt.

All goods supplied by us are sold on these terms and those on the acknowledgement of order, only our Directors are able to vary them and then only in writing.

If the goods are to be delivered in stages, each instalment will be treated as a separate contract.

2. Cancellation

Orders or contracts can only be varied or cancelled with our written consent. This consent assumes that: 1) Goods have not yet been despatched & 2) You will bear any loss that we have incurred.

If we agree to cancel or vary a contract after we have bought or manufactured goods for it we may charge a cancellation fee to compensate us for the expenses of disposal.

If we are dependent on a supplier who fails to supply a necessary component of the goods we will tell you and (if we are able to) offer you an alternative, if we do not get your written approval (within seven days) the contract will be void, but only for those goods.

3. Price

The price includes packaging & delivery unless an ex-works price has been quoted or your order falls below our Carriage Paid value.

The price excludes VAT, except where otherwise stated.

If we suffer a major cost increase we may increase the price; if so we shall tell you as soon as possible.

4. Payment

You must pay us by the end of the month following the invoice date if you have an approved credit account.

If you do not have an approved credit account you must pay via Proforma, before the goods are despatched.

We may change the limit on an approved credit account at any time. If the limit is exceeded the excess must be paid immediately.

We may charge interest on late payments at 8% per month (or part). Interest accrues daily and runs before & after judgement. If you pay late you must also pay (in full) any legal expenses incurred by us.

You may not withhold payment because of any dispute or claim any set-off.

We may apply any payment to any invoice and ignore any contrary instructions given by you.

5. Risk

The goods are at your own risk from when you receive them.

6. Ownership

The goods remain our property (even after delivery) until you pay all that you owe us, (not just the price of the goods).

You may use or sell the goods, but not if you are insolvent or we tell you to return them, but only if the proceeds of sale are held in trust for us and paid into a separate account which may not be overdrawn.

While goods belong to us:-

  • You may hold them as our fiduciary agent and bailee, but may not commit us to any liability under any contract.
  • You will store them safely and separately from other goods.
When the goods belong to you but are under our control, if you become insolvent or fail to pay us when you should have, we have in addition to our rights under ss.48 – Sale Of Goods Act 1979:-

  • A lien on the goods.
  • A right of stoppage in transit.
  • A right of resale as your agent.

We may sue you for payment whether or not property in goods has passed.

7. Free Issue Goods

If you supply materials to us for incorporation in the goods for use in their manufacture:-

  • Those materials will become our property when we receive them.
  • They must be fit for the purpose for which they are supplied and conform to their description and any sample. Should the material supplied by you be defective you will be liable for the full contract price in addition to any other remedy we may have against you.
  • They must be received by us at least 2 weeks prior to your expected delivery date unless otherwise agreed in writing.

  • Any materials supplied by you were incorporated in them or used in their manufacture
  • They have your name or logo on them, or
  • you have any intellectual property rights in their design or composition.

We will accept materials and designs from you only on the basis that you have the consent of all owners of intellectual property rights for us to use them without restrictions and you must compensate us fully if that is not so.

8. Warranties

We have the right to sell the goods to you.

The goods will conform in material respects with any sample, but only if the sample is approved by you in writing and we may improve or alter their composition or specification without notice.

The goods will be described in the acknowledgement of order, but delivery date is not part of that description.

We shall put any breach of any warranty in clause 10 by supplying replacements or refunding the appropriate part of the price, but we are not under any other liability to you (in contract or tort, including for consequential loss, or any implied item) except that:

  • If you are a consumer (defined in s, 12 Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977) ss 13, 14 and 15 Sale of Goods Act 1979 apply, and:
  • We do not exclude or restrict out liability for death or personal injury from our negligence or under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
