Who can use this Supply Manufacture & Sale Agreement?
You can use this Manufacturing and Supply Agreement template if you want a company to manufacture goods for you when you have the exclusive right to buy and resell the finished products.
What is this Agreement for?
It details the terms agreed between manufacturer and buyer. Also, products to be manufactured and the materials being supplied by the buyer will be detailed in a schedule. And our template is suitable for a cross-border arrangement – with manufacturer in one country, buyer in another.
What are the main issues?
Agreeing on the process so that the manufacturer has advance notice of the quantities of products to be made and of the materials to be supplied. This will usually involve forward estimating followed by firm orders and delivery dates. So, every order will involve a separate contract.
Pricing and payment terms will probably involve adjustments to allow for cost increases etc.
Duration: This is likely to be quite long term – e.g. an initial 2 years contract which can be renewed for further periods.
Patents and intellectual property rights should be spelt out.
Termination. Bringing this type of contract to an end can be complex, especially if there are outstanding orders or unsold stock and the issues need to be dealt with in the manufacturing agreement.
