If after such samples for approval or pre- production run is submitted, the production order is cancelled, we reserve the right to charge and/or requote accordingly and add a cancellation charge covering the special tools or equipment used to produce such samples for approval or pre-production quantities. Separate setup/programming charges, when quoted, are made for each specified shipment. This quotation is valid for 30 days from date. After 30 days all prices are subject to change without notice.

We do not assume responsibility for any damages growing out of or owing to any delays in delivery caused by: strike, lock-out, fire, carriers, accident, or other cause beyond the Seller's control. Unless specifically stated to the contrary, orders are accepted for delivery as fast as manufactured by partial or complete shipment packed in bulk.

CANCELLATION: All orders that are accepted on a manufacture-and-hold basis or orders for and quoted on a quantity which will be spread over several months’ time, are non-cancellable. If such an order is cancelled, a cancellation charge (based on actual quantity shipped as if it were an individual order for the reduced quantity, plus any special inventories already purchased by Seller to support future scheduled releases) may be calculated and assessed in any event when deliveries of such pre-scheduled orders extend beyond 90 days, we reserve the right to change or escalate the price.
