Your Company’s acceptance of this purchase order is expressly limited and subject to the following terms and conditions


Jamaica Bearings Co. Inc.’s (“Company”) acceptance of your company’s order is expressly conditioned upon your company’s assent to the following terms and conditions and in the event any of such terms and conditions conflict with the terms and conditions contained in your company’s order, the conflict will be resolved in favor of the terms and conditions contained herein:

  1. Terms and Acceptance. Only the occurrence of one of the following events shall constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions hereof by your company (“Seller”): (a) Seller’s execution of this purchase order (“Order”) and the receipt thereof by our company (“Buyer”); or (b) Seller’s commencement of performance on account of this Order (including, without limitation, a promise to ship or the shipment of conforming or non-conforming goods); provided, however, that in the event Buyer does not receive notice of Seller’s commencement of such performance within a reasonable time, Buyer may treat it’s offer made hereunder as having lapsed before acceptance. The offer contained in this Order is made on the terms and conditions stated herein and no others. Accordingly, Seller’s acceptance of this Order is expressly limited to the terms and conditions hereof. Notice of objection is hereby given to any proposed term or condition or any alteration whether perceived as major or minor in nature. No additions, subtractions, or other modification of the terms and conditions of this Order shall be binding upon Buyer unless expressly accepted in writing by Buyer.
  2. Inspection. Within sixty (60) days after Seller duly tenders delivery of the goods ordered pursuant hereto (the “Goods”), Buyer shall have the right, but not the obligation, to inspect and perform qualification tests on the Goods before accepting them. Tests or inspections performed by Buyer will not constitute acceptance nor relieve Seller of its obligation to tender conforming goods in accordance herewith.
  3. Delivery and Related Matters. (a) Seller shall deliver conforming goods within the time specified for delivery on the face of this Order, but not sooner than five (5) days prior to such date, it being understood that time is of the essence. The Goods shall be deemed delivered when they arrive at the location designated by Buyer in the face herein. Further, Seller hereby waives and negates any right it may have to cure a non-conforming tender of delivery if it would extend the delivery date beyond the date specified for delivery herein, whether or not the Seller had reasonable grounds to believe that the non-conforming tender would be acceptable with or without money damages; (b) notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Buyer shall have the sole and absolute right to postpone and extend the time for delivery specified on the face hereof for the period specified by Buyer, but not to exceed twelve (12) months. Buyer shall exercise such right by giving written notice of its intention to do so to Seller and Buyer shall not be liable to Seller on account of exercising such right; (c) unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Goods shall be delivered in a single lot. To the extent this order authorizes delivery in several lots, it is understood and acknowledged by the parties, and it is their intention, to create a unitary contract and not an installment contract within the meaning of the New York Uniform Commercial Code (“NYUCC”). Accordingly, the parties rights and obligations hereunder shall be construed in accordance with the rules for unitary contracts with delivery in several lots (if applicable), even if it is determined that this is an installment contract; and (d) Seller shall utilize the carrier and method of transportation specified on the face hereof and Seller shall make, and is hereby authorized to make, an appropriate contract for transportation of the Goods in accordance therewith. The Goods shall be shipped to the applicable plant of Buyer as specified on the face hereof. Except as otherwise provided in paragraph 5, Buyer shall pay the costs of transportation. The risk of loss shall be borne by Seller until Seller duly tenders delivery of the Goods and same are unloaded at the applicable plant of Buyer. Tender of delivery shall be governed by Section 2-504 of the NYUCC except that failure to tender delivery shall not be limited to material delay or loss but shall instead be governed by paragraphs 3(a) and 5.
  4. Packaging. Each package shall(i) be placed in containers conforming to Buyer’s specifications, or in the absence of such specifications, in recognized commercial containers suitable for the Goods and domestic or international shipping, as the case may be, with such containers numbered and labeled with the order number, stock number, contents, and weight; and (ii) contain an itemized packing slip. Buyer’s count or weight shall be final and conclusive on shipments of goods not accompanied by packing slip.
  5. Non-conformities; Remedies; Waivers and Related Matters. (a) The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall constitute an “Event of Default”: (i) tendering delivery of any Goods which fail to conform in all respects to the Specifications (as defined below) or any of the other provisions hereof (“Non-conforming Goods”);(ii) Seller’s breach of or failure to perform any of its obligations hereunder; or (iii) Seller’s breach or misrepresentation of any representation or warranty made by Seller hereunder; (b) upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Buyer shall be immediately entitled, but shall not be required, to exercise all, any one or any number of the following rights and remedies within thirty (30) days after Buyer’s discovery thereof: (i) with respect to late deliveries, Buyer may extend the time for delivery, in which case such Goods shall be shipped in the manner specified by Buyer, including, without limitation, shipment by air. Any additional expenses incurred for expedited shipping shall be paid by Seller; (ii) with respect to Non-conforming Goods, Buyer shall have the right to obtain replacement Goods from Seller. Such goods shall be replaced with goods which are in strict compliance with the provisions hereof. Under no circumstances, however, will Non-conforming Goods be repaired; (iii) reject or revoke acceptance, as the case may be, of all or any portion of the shipment of Goods containing any Non-conforming Goods; and (iv) cancel all or any portion of this Order pursuant to paragraph 8(a). Buyer shall exercise any one or more of the foregoing rights and remedies by giving written notice to Seller of its intention to do so. Buyer shall not be liable to Seller on account of exercising any such rights or remedies. Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that the occurrence of an Event of Default shall constitute a substantial impairment of value to Buyer of both the particular shipment in question and this entire Order, so as to entitle Buyer to exercise any one or all of the remedies specified in this Order and the event causing the Event of Default can not be cured as Seller hereby waives its right to do so. In the event Buyer returns Non-conforming Goods to Seller, Seller shall prepare and deliver to Buyer a written preliminary report containing a description of the discrepancy or the non-conformity observed by Buyer. Such report shall be accompanied by photographs, test reports, visual reports and any documents supporting the findings of the report and shall be delivered within three (3) weeks of Seller’s receipt of the Non-conforming Goods from Buyer.
  6. Price and Payment. (a) The price payable for the Goods shall be as specified on the face of this Order. Such price is not subject to increase and includes crating, boxing and cartage and all applicable tariffs, duties and income, sales, ad valorem and excise taxes and similar charges imposed on or with respect to the Goods, and Seller will pay same when due. Seller hereby represents and warrants to Buyer that, at the time of this Order, the prices specified herein constitute Seller’s most preferred prices and such prices are not higher than the prices being quoted to other customers of Seller for goods with the same or similar functionality as the Goods (“Similar Goods”) at quantities similar to or less than quantities of goods ordered by Buyer over the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period. If, at any time prior to shipment, Seller quotes prices for Similar Goods less than the prices provided herein, Seller agrees that the prices charged to Buyer for Goods will be similarly reduced and that Buyer will be invoiced at such reduced prices; (b) payment shall be made by Buyer to Seller in the form of a company check upon the terms specified on the face hereof, but in no event will Buyer be obligated to pay for any of the Goods until after it has had an opportunity to inspect and test the Goods pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 2. Under no circumstances will Seller ship Goods under reservation; and (c) all amounts due by Buyer hereunder and under other orders submitted by Buyer to Seller or any of Seller’s affiliates (collectively, “Other Orders”) shall be subject to off-set by Buyer for any claim Buyer may have hereunder or under any Other Orders.
  7. Assignment. Seller shall not assign any of its rights or delegate any of its duties hereunder without the prior written consent of Buyer, it being understood that Buyer has a substantial interest in having Seller perform its obligations hereunder. Any such assignment or delegation without Buyer’s prior written consent shall be null and void, and of no effect.
  8. Termination and Cancellation. (a) Upon the occurrence of any of the following events, Buyer shall have the sole and absolute right to cancel all or any portion of the Goods ordered pursuant hereto, without any liability to Seller therefor: (i) Seller makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors or admits in writing an inability to pay its debts as they mature or takes advantage of, or files under any federal or state insolvency statute or law, including, without limitation, the United States Bankruptcy Code, or consents to the institution of proceedings or the filing of any petition thereunder, or any preceding is filed or commenced against Seller under any insolvency statute or law which is not stayed and dismissed promptly, or any substantial part of the properties of Seller are placed in the control of a receiver, custodian, trustee or similar official, or Seller consents to the appointment thereof; (ii) if Buyer is prohibited by any cease and desist order, injunction, or other valid order, decree, process of law, or restraint from accepting shipping, selling, exporting or distributing any Goods pursuant to the terms hereof; or (iii) the occurrence of an Event of Default. Buyer shall exercise its right to cancel by giving Seller notice of its intention to so do; (b) this Order may be terminated by Buyer at any time prior to Seller’s delivery of the Goods upon Buyer’s written notification to Seller of its intent to do so. In the event that Buyer exercises its right to terminate this Order for its convenience and provided there has not been the occurrence of any of the events specified in paragraph 8(a), Buyer agrees to pay Seller as liquidated damages:(i) the actual costs for raw materials incurred by Seller in connection with manufacturing the Goods, except to the extent such materials can be utilized in Seller’s business generally or for other customers in particular, plus (ii) an additional five percent(5%) of such costs on account of overhead and profits. The foregoing remedy is Seller’s sole and exclusive remedy for Buyer’s termination of this Order under this paragraph 8(b), and Buyer shall have no other liability on account of exercising its right to terminate. In no event, however will Buyer be liable or responsible for payment in excess of the total price set forth on the face hereof; and (c) in the event Buyer, in its sole judgment, determines that Seller is failing to make sufficient progress so as to jeopardize performance of this Order, then reasonable grounds for insecurity shall be deemed to exist and Buyer shall have the right to demand adequate assurances of due performance.
