What is a Manufacturing Agreement?

A Manufacturing Agreement is a contract between two parties for the manufacture and sale of goods. The key terms of this agreement include the type, quantity and specifications of the goods to be manufactured, as well as the purchase price and payment terms. It also sets out any minimum purchase amounts, warranties given in respect of the goods and how title and risks in those goods pass.

Standard contract terms for liability, dispute resolution, termination, force majeure and intellectual property should also be included.

What We Offer​

Do I need a Manufacturing Agreement?

Yes, we recommend you always have a signed contract before you engage a manufacturer to produce goods for your business.

It’s important to have a contract which protects your intellectual property (i.e. designs) and gives you an accurate cost for the manufacturing of the product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Without a clear agreement in writing, you are leaving yourself open to risk. It can be almost impossible to prove what you agreed on if you only have a verbal or ‘handshake’ agreement with the manufacturer. More importantly, you are leaving your business vulnerable. 

If there is ever a dispute about any terms of the deal, it’s always good to have a signed agreement which you can refer back to.
