These conditions are subject to any special stipulations set out by the Company in the contract documents.

All prices quoted are for delivery ex works including packing to the Company’s normal standards and apply only to the quantities and delivery rates specified. All quotations are given and orders accepted subject to raw materials being available and to the cost of labour, materials and carriage and the level of any applicable customs or other duties or taxes remaining constant. While the Company will endeavour to maintain the quoted prices, the right is reserved to vary them according to the prices effective at the time the goods are delivered.
