With the publication of this price list, all previous price lists lose their validity. The prices stated here are nonetheless subject to change; the prices invoiced in each case are decisive.

Delivery reservation:

For technical or organizational reasons, we reserve the right to remove individual grades or lengths from the delivery program in whole or in part. The article list is therefore not binding.


Our prices are quoted in Euro and do not include sales tax. Only the prices agreed upon for the respective concluded order are binding. The prices are per piece, unless expressly stated otherwise. They are ex works, excluding packaging and freight, unless otherwise agreed.

Domestic carriage paid deliveries:

Deliveries are made ex works and always at the risk and for the account of the purchaser, even if shipping has been assumed by us. Deliveries of consignments with a net value of at least € 90.00  shall be made free of postage within Germany. Under 90,00 € the delivery is not free of charge. Packaging is always charged at cost price.

Bulky goods surcharge:

For parcels longer than 1.20 m, a bulky goods surcharge of (currently) € 6.00 will be charged.

Deliveries abroad:

For deliveries abroad, the prices are ex works and generally without freight. For shipments to the EU area we need the VAT ID number of the buyer.

Small orders / minimum order value:

For an order value of less than € 50.00 net, we charge a processing surcharge of € 6.00.

The minimum order value for first orders from within Germany is 100,00 €.

Delivery times:

Delivery times are not binding. We are not responsible for delays in delivery due to force majeure, including in particular operational disruptions, strikes, lockouts, natural disasters and disruption of traffic routes at our company or at our supplier’s company, even in the case of bindingly agreed deadlines. They entitle us to postpone the delivery for the duration of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up time. Non-compliance with agreed deadlines shall not entitle the Buyer to assert the rights to which he is entitled until he has granted us in writing a reasonable grace period of at least eight working days.

Terms of payment:

Our invoices are payable within 14 days of the invoice date with a 2% discount, within 30 days of the invoice date strictly net. Notwithstanding this, we reserve the right of advance payment. In the event of delayed payment, we reserve the right to charge the customary bank interest on arrears as well as €10.00 for each reminder letter following the first reminder, unless it can be proven to us that we have incurred no or only minor damage.


Transport insurance will be covered by us at cost price, unless otherwise agreed.

Complaint / Warranty:

In order to safeguard warranty claims, the purchaser must inspect the delivery immediately upon arrival for defects, contractual condition and warranted characteristics. Obvious defects must be notified to us in writing within five calendar days of receipt. Defects which are not obvious or which arise during or after processing or treatment must be reported immediately after their discovery, at the latest within five working days. The burden of proof for the time of discovery of the defect shall be on the purchaser. In the case of mutual commercial transactions between merchants, § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) shall remain unaffected. We cannot accept any warranty for complaints received by us after one year.

Retention of title:

Until full payment of the purchase price including all ancillary claims, the goods remain our property. The buyer is not entitled to pledge or transfer ownership by way of security to third parties until full payment has been made. If the goods are resold to third parties prior to payment by the buyer, the buyer’s claim against the third party shall be deemed assigned to us without the need for a separate declaration of assignment.

Custom-made products:

For production-related reasons, in particular if the products still have to be processed by third parties, we reserve the right to deliver ± 10% more or less for special orders.

Exclusion of liability:

Claims for damages on the part of the purchaser, irrespective of the rights involved, are excluded, unless otherwise stipulated below. In the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, our liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract. Furthermore, in case of breach of contractual obligations as well as in tort, our liability is limited to intent and gross negligence. The limitation of liability to intent and gross negligence shall not apply in the event of injury to life, body and health of the Buyer and due to the breach of essential contractual obligations.

Return of goods:

In exceptional cases, we are prepared to take back correctly delivered, defect-free goods in their original packaging, although we are not legally obliged to do so. The goods will be taken back free of charge after prior agreement. We reserve the right to charge a handling fee of up to 15% of the value of the goods for the return.

Take-back of transport packaging:

Under contract no. 109015, we have concluded a contract with the company Interseroh+ GmbH (Cologne) for the return of our transport and sales packaging.

Severability clause:

By placing your order, you are deemed to have accepted the above conditions concerning pricing and the terms of delivery and payment. Should one or more of the conditions be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.


The place of jurisdiction is the registered office of the company RUMOLD GmbH & Co KG. Thus, place of jurisdiction and place of performance for delivery and payment is Stuttgart.

Misprints and errors excepted.
