Orders regularly entered, either with a bonafide purchase order, or via a signed quote and drawing, cannot be cancelled once put into production except upon the terms that will compensate the manufacturers [AlumiTank, Inc] against loss. All work done is billable to the customer.
AlumiTank, Inc. offers generous credit terms to qualified customers and reserves the right to hold orders on accounts that go beyond established credit limits. The purchaser agrees to pay any late fees accrued and any NSF bank charges to AlumiTank, Inc. for each bounced check. As AlumiTank shall expend substantial sums of money and time in connection with its performance of the work prior to receiving payment from Customer, and to secure the payment of the contract price and the other sums to be paid by Customer, Customer pledges and grants to AlumiTank a security interest in and to all materials, parts and finished product manufactured or to be manufactured by AlumiTank pursuant hereto (the “Collateral”). In the event of Customer’s nonpayment, AlumiTank’s rights and remedies with respect to the Collateral shall be those of a Secured Party under the Uniform Commercial Code of Illinois and under any other applicable law. In connection herewith, Customer agrees to execute and deliver, upon the request of AlumiTank, any and all further documents and financing statements which may be reasonably required by AlumiTank to perfect its security interest as herein granted, and in the event of the failure of Customer to so execute such further documents, Customer appoints AlumiTank as its attorney in fact for the purposes of executing such further documents on Customer’s behalf.
Drawings, Print, Photos, Copies
All originals of these items are the property of the supplier. If AlumiTank, Inc supplies or produces them, they remain ATI property and cannot be transferred to the customer without full payment, plus profit, for the work involved. Conversely, if they are supplied by the customer, they remain his property, but they now become his liability. The manufacturer is no longer required to do any more than faithfully reproduce his product from the materials supplied to him. His liability goes no further.
On each rough drawing, changes and corrections must be clearly spelled out and signed by the customer, indicating the change and location by both lateral and vertical weld seem, when applicable. Changes once production has started may be subject to an additional fee. Some changes may not be possible depending on the stage of production.
At least one rough drawing/silhouette/worksheet of each tank (or other production item) must be submitted (or on file as a Master Print) for each order. A final production print and formal quote will be generated from these roughs and are to be signed and returned to the AlumiTank, Inc as the CAD engineering template and manufacturing guide. If additional roughs require the signature final print to be modified (prior to the commencement of production), change fees may apply.
Roughs, Proofs, Templates
All roughs, proofs, templates and final drawings used in production remain the property of the AlumiTank, Inc.
On occasion, orders may deviate from production prints. Any production deviations greater than 5% will be clearly spelled out to the customer and are subject to customer approval. This is necessary due to potential variances in Plasma Cutter & CNC tolerances and other variable factors. It will be the final decision of the customer whether such a deviation is acceptable. AlumiTank, Inc will not be liable to make up deviations below 5%.
All tanks with component parts are tested to be leak free and meet FMCSA standards prior to shipping to the customer. Each tank shall receive a serial number and placard indicating its compliance with FMCSA standards.
Unless otherwise specified, the price quoted is for a single shipment, without storage, and is F.O.B. the manufacturer‘s loading dock. Title and risk of loss of the products transfers to customer at such time the products are picked up by customer (or by a freight hauler for transport to customer). All proposals, based upon a series of shipments at one time, or a series of shipments throughout a given period of time, requiring or not requiring storage, shall be specifically stated in the quotation request confirmed in the bid and stipulated in the purchase order. Additional storage fees and appropriate insurance for storage may apply. All orders must be paid in full at the time of shipping, unless on account. AlumiTank, Inc. does not up-charge customers for shipping and will make every effort to find the best rate available on the day of shipment. Quotes (including signed quotes) for shipping may vary at the actual time of shipping due to fuel surcharges and length of time between original quote and ship date and are the responsibility of the customer.
