Terms for Delivery

Terms for delivery are estimated only unless they have expressly been confirmed as fixed. Times of delivery begin with the date of our written order confirmation, but not before all details of the contract are clarified completely. The Buyer is not allowed to reject partial deliveries. We shall not be liable for any loss, cost, damage, charge, or expense caused by any delay of the delivery of the goods.

We shall not be liable for delays or failure in performance when caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Claims for damages of any kind are excluded. We reserve the right to ship and Purchaser agrees to accept an underrun or overrun of any quantity ordered by Purchaser.

In case of force majeur we are entitled to extend the times of delivery for the period of the hindrance and for a reasonable break-in period, or to rescind the contract wholly or in part in view of the non-performed part of the contract.

Force majeur is on a par with strike, lockouts and other occurrences that cause delay in or impossibility of delivery or contract liabilities, particularly in economic connection, whether they occur at our place, at one of our sub­ supplier’s or any other place.

Payment Conditions

For buyer with approved credit from us, our invoices are payable within 30 days net. Otherwise, it is cash payment before delivery. For specially made products, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit. Our prices exclude costs for packing and freight as well as the legal GST. If payment has not been effected within the set payment limit buyer has to pay interest at the rate of 3% over and above the prevailing Central Bank’s discount rate.

Any of our accounts receivables – independent from the term of a bill taken on account of performance or credit – become due immediately if contractual agreements, in particular those concerning the payment, are not met, or if other circumstances become known which impair the credit standing of the buyer. We will then be entitled to execute outstanding deliveries against advance payment only, and entitled to securities of common type and scope for any accounts receivables. In the event Purchaser fails to make any payment when due. Purchaser shall be liable for all expenses related to collection of past due amounts, including attorneys’ fees. We may require full or partial payment in advance of shipment if, in our opinion, the credit or financial condition of Purchaser is, or is about to become, impaired. If Purchaser requests delayed shipment, we may bill for Products when ready for shipment and charge reasonable daily storage fees. Purchaser shall not have any right of setoff.

The buyer shall not be entitled to withhold payment of or set off against any amount payable unless his counter claim is undisputed or has been decided in his favour by a court.

Reservation of Ownership

The property in the goods delivered shall remain vested in ourselves and shall not pass to the customer until he has made payment in full of all sums due to ourselves under this or any other contracts between ourselves and the customer, as well as the balancing accounts receivables in particular.

The redemption of the goods subjected to reservation of ownership in case of violation of the contract by the buyer – particularly in case of default in payment, shall be deemed as withdrawal from the contract only if we expressly acknowledge this in writing. 

In case the goods delivered are in a country whose laws do not allow reservation of property, then the buyer is obliged to provide us with all securities, permissible in the country where the goods are. The buyer is obliged to undertake and assist us in all measures, which are necessary to protect our right of reservation of property or in place of any other rights on the goods delivered.

The risk of the products will be passed to the client upon delivery of the products.


All specially made products by us are non-returnable and non-refundable. For stock products, we charge a restocking fee of up to 20% of the purchase price paid, plus any applicable tax, or a minimum of 10 dollars, whichever is the lower. You will be responsible for paying your own return cost. Any shipping costs charge by us are non-refundable.

The variety of application possibilities of our products excludes any guarantee for the suitability of our recommendations for the individual application case. Patent right violations are unintentional. Our goods comply with our prevailing production technology. We are entitled to modified delivery of the goods with equivalent properties or technical improvements.

In case of defect goods, the buyer at our discretion has to let us inspect the goods by an independent expert. Any claims from complaints shall be invalid if the buyer does not give us or our sub supplier the opportunity to inspect the identity of the goods in question and the alleged defects at site and does not immediately provide us at our request with samples.

Any claims from complaints shall further be invalid if the processing of the goods or a mixture of the goods with goods of another origin are not immediately terminated after discovery of the defects, namely until the goods are released expressly by us or our sub-supplier.
