PO/Terms Conditions

PO/Terms Conditions
1. GOVERNING PROVISIONS. These terms and conditions govern all purchases by each of the
affiliated Wisconsin corporations Bradley Corporation, Bradley Fixtures Corporation, The Mills
Company, Advantage 1 Distributing, Inc and Keltech Inc. Each purchase order submitted by any of
those corporations is an offer by the purchaser identified on the face of that purchase order (the
“Purchaser”) to purchase the goods and/or services described therein, not a confirmation or
acceptance of any offer to sell; and acceptance of that offer is limited to the terms of that offer and
these terms and conditions. Purchaser hereby objects to any additional or different terms contained
on any of the seller’s quotation, acknowledgment, invoice or other forms, or in any other
correspondence from the seller. These terms and conditions, as supplemented by agreed prices and
delivery dates, shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties on the subject of purchases
by Purchaser from the seller, superseding all prior communications and negotiations.
2. CHANGES IN ORDERS. No changes or modifications in the specifications, prices or other
terms of this order shall be binding on Purchaser unless evidenced by a purchase order change notice
issued and signed by Purchaser.
3. DELIVERY, DELAY AND ANTICIPATION. The seller shall deliver the goods in the
quantities and shall deliver the goods and/or provide the services within the time, which is of the
essence, in accordance with the specifications, drawings or approved samples, and at the prices
agreed. Failure of the seller to comply with such requirements shall entitle Purchaser, in addition to
any other rights or remedies, to cancel any order and be relieved of all liability for any undelivered
portion. In the event that, for reasons which are beyond Purchaser’s reasonable control, shipment is
delayed beyond the last date on which shipment by the method contemplated herein would result in
delivery guaranteed on or before the required delivery date herein, the seller shall make shipment by
the most expeditious available method of transportation. Any additional cost of such method of
shipment shall be borne by the seller. If shipment is delayed for any cause, the seller must report the
same to Purchaser promptly. Failure of Purchaser to insist upon strict performance shall not
constitute a waiver of any of the provisions of any order or waiver of any default. Any failure by
Purchaser to exercise its remedies with respect to any installment shall not be deemed to constitute a
waiver with respect to subsequent installments. The seller shall not unreasonably anticipate delivery
by purchasing materials or manufacturing quantities in excess of what is reasonably required to meet
Purchaser’s delivery schedule. Items received in advance of Purchaser’s delivery schedule may, at
Purchaser’s option, be returned at the seller’s expense or be accepted and payment withheld until the
scheduled delivery date.
4. SHIPPING, PACKING AND RISK OF LOSS. Unless otherwise provided on the face of this
document, the shipping terms for all goods purchased hereunder are F.O.B. destination; but
Purchaser reserves the right to specify the carrier and routing of all shipments. All goods shall be
suitably packed, marked with Purchaser’s purchase order number and shipped in accordance with
shipping instructions specified herein and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of common
carriers so as to obtain the lowest transportation cost. Packing slips must be included with all
shipments showing order number, part number and quantity. The order number must be shown on
each packing slip and invoice. No charge shall be made to Purchaser for boxing, packing, crating or
carting unless separately itemized on the face hereof. Regardless of shipping terms, all risk that the
ordered goods may be lost, damaged or delayed in transit shall be upon the seller until conforming
goods have been actually received, inspected and accepted by Purchaser. The seller shall be liable to
Purchaser for any loss or damage resulting from the seller’s failure to act so as to provide adequate
protection during shipment. Additional expenses, charges or claims incurred as a result of deviation
from the specified route, noncompliance with other shipping instructions, or improper description of
the shipment in shipping documents shall be assumed by the seller.
5. INSPECTION, ACCEPTANCE AND REJECTION. All goods purchased hereunder (and
work-in-progress relating thereto) shall be subject to inspection and testing by Purchaser (or a
governmental agency when goods are being produced under a government contract) at any
reasonable time and from time to time before, during or after manufacture and delivery. If any
inspection or test is to be made on the premises of the seller, the seller without additional charge shall
provide all reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and convenience of the inspectors in the
performance of their duties.
Notwithstanding prior inspections, all goods are subject to final inspection and approval at
Purchaser’s plant or other place designated by Purchaser and, notwithstanding any payment that may
be made, no goods are deemed accepted until such final inspection and approval. Purchaser’s
inspection before, during or after manufacture and delivery shall not constitute a waiver of the right
of subsequent rejection by reason of any undiscovered or latent defect. Purchaser may return or
make necessary repairs to rejected goods, in either case at the seller’s expense. The seller shall not
replace goods returned as defective unless so directed by Purchaser in writing.
6. WARRANTIES, REMEDIES. The seller warrants that the goods to be furnished hereunder
shall (a) be free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, good and merchantable title thereto being in
the seller; (b) be free from any defects in design, material or workmanship (latent or otherwise) and
of good and merchantable quality; (c) be new, not used, refurbished or reconstituted; (d) conform to
Purchaser’s specifications or the sample approved by Purchaser, and with representations with
respect thereto previously made by the seller, to the extent any of the foregoing are applicable, as the
case may be, and be fit for the use intended by Purchaser; and (e) comply and have been produced,
processed, packaged, labeled, delivered and sold in conformity with all applicable federal, state or
other laws, administrative regulations and orders, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act
of 1971 as amended from time to time; and the seller warrants that any services to be furnished
hereunder shall be performed (f) in accordance with all applicable federal, state or other laws,
administrative regulations and orders, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1971 as
amended from time to time, (g) to the highest standards of skill and care in the industry, and (h) so as
to accomplish the results identified therefor by the Purchaser. The foregoing warranties shall survive
inspection, delivery and payment, and shall run in favor of Purchaser, its successors and assigns and
its customers, whether direct or indirect. The seller shall determine the particular purposes for which
all goods/services purchased by Purchaser are required, and shall utilize its skill and judgment to
select and furnish suitable goods/services; the seller acknowledges that Purchaser is relying on the
seller to do so.
If any goods ordered hereunder shall be found to be unsatisfactory, defective or inferior in quality, or
not to conform to Purchaser’s specifications or any other requirements hereof (including the seller’s
warranties), Purchaser may, at its option and in addition to its other remedies, retain such goods at an
adjusted price, hold such goods at the seller’s risk and expense pending the seller’s specific
instructions, repair such goods at the seller’s risk and expense, or return them to the seller for
replacement, credit or refund, as Purchaser shall direct. Purchaser shall also have the right to cancel
any unshipped portions of any order. Purchaser shall be reimbursed by the seller for all of its costs
and expenses in connection with the storage, handling, repair, packing and/or transporting of any
such defective or otherwise nonconforming goods; and the seller shall assume all risk of loss or
damage in transit to goods returned by Purchaser pursuant hereto.
Rev. 06/15
The seller shall indemnify Purchaser, its
successors, assigns, and customers (whether direct or indirect) against any and all losses,
damages and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and other costs of defending any action) which
they, or any of them, may sustain or incur as a result of any claim of negligence, breach of
warranty, personal injury or death, patent or trademark infringement, strict liability in tort or based
on any other theory of law in connection with the goods/services furnished by the seller hereunder,
or as a result of any claim that the goods furnished by the seller fail to conform to or comply with
any federal, state or local laws, regulations or standards, or based upon or arising out of any
construction, installation, services or facilities furnished by the seller under or in connection with
any order.
8. PURCHASER’S DAMAGES. The seller shall be responsible for any and all losses,
liabilities, damages and expenses, including incidental and consequential damages, and including
attorneys’ fees and other costs of prosecuting an action for breach, which Purchaser may sustain or
incur as a result of any breach of contract.
9. PATENTS, TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS. The seller warrants that the sale or use
of goods furnished hereunder will not infringe or contribute to infringement of any patent,
copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right or subject Purchaser or its customers
(direct or indirect) to royalties in the United States or elsewhere, and shall indemnify and save
harmless Purchaser, its successors and assigns and its customers (whether direct or indirect),
against any and all losses, damages and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and other costs of
defending any infringement action) which they, or any of them, may sustain or incur as the result
of a breach of this warranty.
10. FAIR LABOR STANDARDS CERTIFICATE. The seller hereby certifies that all goods
furnished hereunder shall have been produced in compliance with all applicable requirements of
Sections 6, 7 and 12 of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, and of regulations and
orders of the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division issued under Section 14 thereof, and in
accordance with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing general conditions
for labor employed in the production of such goods.
11. NON-ASSIGNABILITY. The seller shall not assign or sublet the work to be done
hereunder without the prior written consent of Purchaser, but this provision shall not restrict the
seller in the procurement of component parts or materials. If any order shall be terminated for
Purchaser’s convenience, Purchaser’s liability to the seller with respect to such parts or materials
shall not exceed the amount for which the seller would be liable to its supplier or suppliers if such
liability were determined on the basis of paragraph 12 hereof.
12. CANCELLATION BY PURCHASER. Purchaser shall have the right to cancel any order
without cause; and Purchaser’s liability for such cancellation shall be limited to the seller’s
out-of-pocket cost for work and materials applicable solely to the cancelled order which shall have
been expended when notice of cancellation shall be received by the seller, reduced by the fair
market resale value of such work-in-process. Purchaser may, at its option, cancel any order
without liability to the seller (except for conforming shipments previously accepted by Purchaser)
in the event the seller shall cease to exist or become insolvent or the subject of bankruptcy,
receivership or insolvency proceedings or shall commit a material breach in the performance of
any part of its obligation hereunder.
If requested by Purchaser, the seller shall promptly furnish the Purchaser in such form and detail as
Purchaser may direct: (a) a list of all ingredients in the goods purchased hereunder; (b) the amount
of one or more ingredients; and (c) information concerning any changes in or additions to such
ingredients. Prior to and with the shipment of goods purchased hereunder, the seller agrees to
furnish to Purchaser sufficient warning and notice in writing, including appropriate labels on
goods, containers and packaging of any hazardous material which is an ingredient or a part of any
of the goods, together with such special handling instructions as may be necessary to advise
carriers, Purchaser and their respective employees of how to exercise that measure of care and
precaution which will best prevent bodily injury or property damage in the handling,
transportation, processing, use or disposal of the goods, containers and packaging shipped to
Purchaser shall have no
obligation to furnish or pay for any design work, drawings, tools or other equipment required for
the performance of any order; provided, however, that Purchaser may, at its option, purchase any
such items especially required by the seller for any order at the current value thereof on the seller’s
books for income tax purposes and any item so purchased shall be deemed furnished to Purchaser
hereunder. Any design, drawing, specification, photograph, tool or other equipment or material or
part or engineering and manufacturing information heretofore or hereafter furnished to the seller by
Purchaser, or the cost of which shall have been paid by Purchaser or included in the aggregate
price of any order, whether or not separately itemized hereon, shall be and remain Purchaser’s
property, shall be conspicuously identified as such in the seller’s records and by physical marking
thereon, shall be promptly delivered to Purchaser upon request, shall be treated as confidential
information, shall not be used in processing or manufacturing goods for anyone other than
Purchaser and, while in the possession of the seller, shall be the seller’s responsibility and shall be
adequately insured at the seller’s expense for the benefit of Purchaser against loss or damage by
fire or other hazard. No change shall be made in any design, drawing, specification, tool or other
equipment furnished by Purchaser without Purchaser’s express written consent. Any information
which the seller may disclose to Purchaser with respect to the design, manufacture or sale or use
of the items covered by any order shall be deemed to have been disclosed as part of the
consideration for that order, and the seller shall not assert any claim (other than a claim for patent
infringement) against Purchaser by reason of Purchaser’s use thereof.
15. FORCE MAJEURE. Purchaser shall not be liable for any damage as a result of any delay
or failure to accept delivery due to any act of God, act of the seller, embargo or other
governmental act, regulation or request, fire, accident, strike, slowdown or other labor difficulties,
war, riot, delay in transportation, defaults of common carriers, inability to obtain necessary labor,
materials, or manufacturing facilities or, without limiting the foregoing, any other delays beyond
the Purchaser’s control which shall affect the Purchaser’s ability to receive and use the goods or
services. In the event of such delay, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period equal to
the time lost because of the delay.
16. TAXES. Purchaser shall not be liable for any federal, state or local taxes, duties, customs or
assessments in connection with the sale, purchase, transportation, use, or possession of the goods
ordered hereunder.
17. REMEDIES CUMULATIVE. The rights and remedies of the Purchaser set forth herein
shall be in addition to any rights or remedies which Purchaser may otherwise have.
18. COMPENSATION TO PURCHASER’S AGENTS. No employee or other agent of
Purchaser is permitted to solicit or accept any compensation or payment from any supplier,
