  1. Application

  1. All Quotes and sales by Seller are subject to these Conditions and the terms on the face of the Quote, which constitute the sole terms and conditions under which Seller will sell Goods to Buyer.  Written acceptance of a Quote, or any other conduct consistent with acceptance of a Quote, such as placing an order or issuing a purchase order to buy the Goods or the payment of Seller’s invoice, shall constitute acceptance by Buyer of these Conditions.  These Conditions shall apply to the exclusion of any terms and conditions of contract imposed or sought to be imposed by Buyer at any time, whether attached by Buyer to any purchase order or otherwise.  The signing by Seller of Buyer's documentation shall not imply any modification of these Conditions.  Unless otherwise specified, all Quotes expire 30 calendar days from the date issued and are subject to termination by notice within that period.  All Quotes are subject to credit approval and acceptance by Seller.

  2. These Conditions shall remain in force until such time as Seller advises Buyer in writing that it has adopted revised Terms and Conditions of Sale in substitution for these Conditions.


  1. Delivery and Acceptance

  1. Delivery of Goods by the date shown and to the address specified is at Buyer's risk and expense.  Dates of delivery of Goods are estimates only.  Shipments made within twenty (20) days after a specified date of delivery shall constitute a good delivery.  All deliveries are F.O.B. Swanton, Ohio.

  2. Buyer shall immediately inspect all Goods once they are delivered to insure that they conform to the order and, from Buyer’s perspective, are free from any defects including  but not limited to claims for shortage.  If no claim is made by Buyer within ten (10) days of delivery, it shall be conclusively presumed that the Goods have been fully accepted.

  3. Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, Buyer shall provide all alterations to its facilities necessary to accommodate the Goods.

  4.

  1. Price and Payment

  1. Buyer agrees to pay all city, state, federal or foreign transactional or other sales or use taxes, including without limitation, taxes on manufacture, sales, use and similar taxes, and all other taxes, levies and duties applicable to the Goods (other than United States federal, state or local taxes based on the net income of Seller), however designated or levied and whether or not specified in any invoice.  All prices shown on the Quote are exclusive of such taxes unless otherwise indicated.

  2. Payment is due prior to the shipment of Goods to Buyer.  For any balance owed for any reason, Buyer agrees to pay a monthly late charge equal to 1.5% of the past due balance, not to exceed the maximum lawful interest rate for invoices that are not paid within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice.
