Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale

All agreements and purchase orders are subject to Casey Machines standard terms and conditions of sale unless otherwise agreed to in writing and signed by representatives from Casey Machine and the customer.

Regular:  Purchase orders for a specific item and for a specific due date is considered a regular order.  We will do our best to complete exact quantities on regular orders but orders with multiple operations have an opportunity for fall out at each operation, therefore order quantities may vary plus or minus 10%.  Revisions to scheduled items must be negotiated on an item by item basis.  An expedite fee may be assessed when the revision creates additional cost to Casey Machine.

Blanket Orders:  In the event that a customer would like to place purchase orders for an extended period of time, they may do so under a “blanket order” agreement.  Blanket orders are negotiated for a specific number of parts, sell price and time frame.  Casey Machine’s sell price is subject to material cost increases.  Releases may be scheduled with various quantities on a periodic basis providing quantity is in even multiples consistent with agreed upon packaging criteria.

LTA/KanBan:  Long Term Agreements may be utilized where appropriate when the customer desires Casey Machine to maintain a set amount of finished goods that can be released to the customer with short lead times.  Casey Machines pricing will reflect the economics of this service. Casey Machine may, at the customers desire, accommodate various different types of supplier arrangements, negotiated on an individual basis such as Vendor Managed Inventory and leasing agreements.

Raw Material Liability:  Blanket orders and LTA’s may necessitate Casey Machine carrying inventories of raw materials.  These inventories provide stability in pricing and decrease lead-times.  Minimum order quantities imposed by our suppliers may necessitate extra materials be acquired for regular, blanket, and LTA orders.  The customer is expected to assume responsibility for the raw materials inventories purchased but not used.  If the material is considered to be “off the shelf” and can be returned to the provider, a restocking fee will be charged to the customer in addition to other costs such as transportation back to the provider.  In the case where the material is unique, the customer will be responsible for the full amount of the raw material price at the last purchase price.
