Kent has an in-depth understanding of our industry from quoting and contracting, through design, manufacturing, quality control and final delivery. Kent’s two part presentation will be geared to management and sales personnel with regards to the quoting and contracting process and the associated risks. Be sure to have your questions ready for Part 1 of this presentation and Part 2 which will be announced at a later date.
As component manufacturers, we buy, design, manufacture, sell and warrant lumber in the form of a wood truss. That is what we do! But do we closely consider the risks and liabilities that lumber presents to the component manufacturer? Are there ways to manage these risks? This session will examine the risks and corresponding best practices component manufacturers can follow when buying lumber, designing with lumber, manufacturing with lumber, and selling and warranting a lumber value added product.
Whether it’s a major or minor part of your business, selling trusses to lumberyards, distributors and other manufacturers can be a significant risk. Learn how to limit your liability and manage your risks in resale contracts.
