Terms & Conditions
Orders are accepted and goods supplied only on the basis of our standard sales conditions printed hereunder. No employee or agent of this Company has authority to accept orders on any other basis. By placing an order with us, whether or not by reference to our catalogue, a customer (a) offers to buy our products on the terms of business set out hereunder and (b) waives any conditions or stipulations in, or made at the time of, the order (or in its own standard documentation) which impose or seek to impose its own conditions or terms of purchase insofar as these are at variance with these standard sales conditions, whatever the customer’s intention may be.
The Company reserves the right to accept or refuse orders and also to cancel or suspend delivery of any uncompleted order. Orders are accepted subject to the availability of material. Every effort is made to complete your order in full, but should the need arise to make substitutions they will be to the same value or greater.
