Unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by DEVATEC, as Seller, all sales are subject to the following terms and conditions.

Any general terms and conditions printed on Buyer’s purchase orders or related documents shall be inapplicable. If in conflict with these terms and conditions, except as expressly and specifically accepted by Seller in writing. For the interpretation of the trade terms the contract is governed by the provisions of the “Inco” terms set forth by the International Chamber of Commerce and in force at the date of the Company’s written acceptance of the order.


Offers from Seller are subject to acceptance within 60 days from date of offer and are firm only under the following conditions:

  1. a) Quoted prices are firm only for products released for immediate shipment within 3 months from date of purchase order.
  2. b) If release for shipment is made after 3 months from this date, prices will be those in effect at the time of shipment but will not exceed the quoted prices by more than 10%.
  3. c) If release for shipment is after 6 months from this date, prices will be those in effect at time of shipment.
  4. d) Written notice will be submitted prior to shipment advising the client of any applicable price increase.

Pricing of special, non-standard items is based upon the quantities shown and will not necessarily apply in the event a greater or lesser quantity is purchased.

The present provisions concerning price modifications also apply to sales concluded without a formal offer from Seller.

  2. a) Buyer’s orders are binding on the Seller only after the written acceptance by an authorized representative of the Seller.
  3. b) Cancellation of an accepted order by the Purchaser is made only with Seller’s consent.

Seller does not guarantee delivery of the products sold, within the specified period. Delivery dates are given and intended by the Company as estimates only and are not an essential condition of performance.

Delivery to the first carrier shall constitute delivery to the Buyer and entails the transfer or title and risks.

Products are agreed or deemed to be agreed ex Seller’s factory, even when products are taken out by a third party. No claim for default of conformity or apparent defect of construction shall be possible after the time of acceptance as specified here above.

Seller shall not be liable for delays, damages or shortages after delivery to the carrier and in such event Buyer has rights only against the carrier. If shipment is delayed due to an act of the Buyer, delivery to the Buyer will be deemed to occur as soon as the Buyer is notified that the goods are ready for shipment; they may be held thereafter for the Buyer’s account and at his expense and risk.


All orders accepted subject to delays or failure in delivery resulting from force majeure, including without limitation, floods, strikes or other labor disturbances, riots, fires, accidents, wars, embargoes, delays of carriers, inability to obtain raw materials, imported products, lack of natural sources of supply, acts, injunctions or restraints of government authorities (whether announced or not), or any cause whether similar of dissimilar to the foregoing, beyond the reasonable control of Seller.
