ALS Terms & Conditions


1. Pricing

Prices on the goods specified do not include any city, state, or federal excise taxes, including, without limitation, taxes on manufacture, sales, receipts, gross income, occupation, use, and similar taxes, fees, or other charges imposed by governmental entities. When applicable, taxes will be added to the invoice as a separate charge to be paid by Customer. If an exemption from a tax is claimed, supporting documents must be furnished by Customer prior to delivery.


Any and all quotations provided by ALS to Customer shall automatically expire in sixty (60) calendar days from the date issued, and are subject to termination by ALS by notice to Customer at any time.


Tooling / setup charge / programming may be charged if the scope of the job will go beyond normal production requirements due to complexity or unusual conditions.


Due to the tooling and setup time requirements of every one of the jobs, Customer may be charged minimum of $100 if the value of the order is less than this amount.


Crating, pallets and special packaging to avoid breakage, scratches, pits or other shipping related damages may involve additional charges, which shall be paid by Customer.


Expedite fee may be charged if the customer requests expediting the job to be done sooner than normal production lead time.


2. Terms of Payment

All payments are due upon delivery of the job.


Customers who filed all necessary credit references and required paperwork by law with ALS a Net 30 payment schedule is offered. For Customers who are compliant with these requirements payments shall be due no later than thirty (30) calendar days after the date of ALS’s invoice.


ALS encourages all customers qualified for Net 30 payments to take advantage of the 2% Net 10 discount offer. In order to be eligible for this discount payment shall be issued by Customer within 10 calendar days of the issuance of the ALS’s Invoice.


All payments made after thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the invoice shall be subject to a late charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month based on the outstanding balance unless other payment agreement were made with the Customer.


ALS reserves the right to change such payment terms at any time in the event that ALS has reasonable grounds for insecurity as to payment. ALS shall have the right at any time to demand cash payment on or before delivery in any instance in which ALS determines that Customer’s credit is less than satisfactory, or for other good cause.


For any special order requiring ALS to produce an unusual, complex or custom made product, Customer may be required to pre-pay some or all of the cost of the order.


3. Cancellations

Once placed with and accepted by ALS, an order may be cancelled or modified only with ALS’s written consent and only upon terms that will indemnify ALS against any loss arising out of such transaction. Customer will be responsible for all work and material in process at time of cancellation and will be invoiced accordingly.


4. Security Interest

To secure the payment of ALS’s invoice, Customer grants to ALS a security interest in all goods sold to Customer under the Order, including all proceeds there from. Customer authorizes ALS to perfect its security interest through a filing of a financing statement pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code and shall reimburse ALS for any fees incurred in filing the financing statement which may be added by ALS to the amount of ALS’s invoice to Customer.

Customer shall note that lead time may be affected by waiting on drawings, data, CAD files from the customer and/or material from the supplier and this may require adjustment to delivery schedule.


ALS will not be liable for any delay in the performance of its obligations under the Order, or for any damages suffered by Customer due to such delay, if the delay is, directly or indirectly, caused by a fire, flood, accident, civil unrest, act of God, war, governmental interference or embargo, labor strike, shortage of materials, or any other cause beyond ALS's control.


ALS is committed to do its best to keep all reasonable delivery dates confirmed to Customer.


7. Materials
