A. Dickey Manufacturing Company may terminate the Order, in whole or in part, for default occasioned by  Supplier’s: (i) breach of any terms of the Order; (ii) failure to perform in accordance with  the requirements of the Order; or (iii) failure to make progress so as to endanger timely and  proper delivery of the Goods or completion of the Services and, in each such case, Supplier  does not correct such breach or failure within twenty (20) days (or such period of time  otherwise set forth in writing by Dickey Manufacturing Company or as Dickey Manufacturing Company may determine) after receipt of  written notice from Dickey Manufacturing Company specifying such breach or failure.

In the event of such termination, the other party shall be liable for all costs, damages and expenses suffered by the party that terminates the Order. Any such termination shall not affect the entitlement of Dickey Manufacturing Company with respect to the Dickey Manufacturing Company Property. 


A. Any delay or failure of either party to perform its obligations will be excused if and to the  extent that the party is unable to perform specifically due to an unforeseeable event or  occurrence beyond its reasonable control and without its fault or negligence, such as: acts  of God; restrictions, prohibitions, priorities or allocations imposed or actions taken by a  governmental authority (whether valid or invalid); embargoes; fires; floods, earthquakes,  explosions; natural disasters; riots; wars; sabotage; inability to obtain power; or court  injunction or order (each, an event of “Force Majeure”). Written notice of such delay, including the anticipated duration of the delay, must be given by the nonperforming party within two (2) days of the Force Majeure event.  

B. Any delay or failure that Supplier can overcome through additional planning, efforts or expenditures (including, but not limited to, the use of expedited shipping or overtime) shall not be excused due to an event of Force Majeure. Supplier shall be obligated, at its own expense, to undertake such measures as may be necessary to overcome any such failure or delay. The change in cost or availability of materials or components based on market conditions, supplier actions, or contract disputes or any labor strike or other labor disruption applicable to Supplier or any of its subcontractors or suppliers, will not excuse Supplier’s performance (under theories of force majeure, commercial impracticability or otherwise), and Supplier assumes these risks. As soon as possible (but no more than one full business day) after the occurrence, Supplier will provide written notice describing such delay and assuring Dickey Manufacturing Company of the anticipated duration of the delay and the time that the delay will be cured.

In addition, Supplier at its expense will take all necessary actions to ensure the supply of Goods or Services to Dickey Manufacturing Company for a period of at least 30 days during any anticipated labor disruption or resulting from the expiration of SUPPLIERS labor contracts. Otherwise, Dickey Manufacturing Company may terminate the Order without liability and Supplier shall reimburse Dickey Manufacturing Company for costs associated with the termination. 


A. Either party’s failure to insist on the performance by the other party of any Term or failure to  exercise any right or remedy reserved in the Order, or either party’s waiver of any breach or default  hereunder by the other party shall not, thereafter, waive any other terms, conditions, rights,  remedies, breaches or defaults, whether of the same or a similar type or not. 


A. No modification of the Order, including any waiver of or addition to any of the Terms, shall be binding upon Dickey Manufacturing Company, unless made in writing and signed by Dickey Manufacturing Company’s authorized representative. 


A. Supplier and Dickey Manufacturing Company are independent contracting Parties and nothing in the Order shall make either party the agent or legal representative of the other for any purpose whatsoever, nor does the Order grant either party any authority to assume or to create any obligation on behalf of or in the name of the other. None of the persons engaged by Supplier in the performance of its obligations under the Order shall be considered as employees of Dickey Manufacturing Company. 


A. If any provision of the Order is invalid or unenforceable under any statute, regulation, ordinance,  executive order or other rule of law, such provision shall be deemed reformed or deleted, as the  case may be, but only to the extent necessary to comply with such statute, regulation, ordinance,  order or rule, and the remaining provisions of the Order shall remain in full force and effect.


A. For purposes of this Section, “Dickey Manufacturing Company Data” means all data, content, material, Confidential Information and other information provided by Dickey Manufacturing Company to Supplier or otherwise transmitted to Supplier for use in connection with this Order.
