- Delivery EXW Mill within October 10th, 2017; we have penalties in case of delay.. due to the total amount of the order we would like to avoid to pay any fee.
Moreover, we will have an internal meeting on May 16th to organize the managing of the project, and it would be very good to have your offer within that day, in accordance to the specs (where applicable). Kind of obvious to say that prices and payment term are really important.
