Commitment to Our Customers

SFI is committed to bringing the highest quality product and a lifetime value to our customers. SFI and our suppliers are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and support.

Every term and condition stated here shall apply to all purchases of any SFI products and all quotes, orders and order documents concerning any products made or sold by SFI. As a condition and part of any request for quote, order or purchase, Purchaser hereby agrees to all the terms and conditions set forth below in this document and related to any presentations on SFI website and Online marketing and sales.

General Terms and Conditions of Sale

All information included and presented in SFI catalogs, price list or proposals are non-binding. Only the terms agreed in Confirmed Orders are binding. Terms for an order only become binding to SFI after the Purchaser has placed an order and such an order was confirmed by SFI. With SFI Order Confirmation, Purchaser is responsible to make the first
payment to activate the placed order. For establishing a line of credit payment please refer to section on price and term of payments.

General Agreement

With received Confirmed Orders and first payment, SFI can start production of the Purchase Order. SFI prices do not include, customs duties, taxes, inside delivery, unloading, installation and any other fees (such as any special product certification costs if such may be incurred). Prices are subject to change without notice. SFI reserves the right to add the cost for special shipping and packaging if requested by the Purchaser.

Credit Evaluation

To establish a business relationship, SFI requires satisfactory credit reports from three supplied trade references and the client’s financial statement. Credit evaluation can be made only by the SFI office. Possession of the SFI Catalogue and the Price List does not constitute the authority to distribute and sell SFI products to a third party. No Purchase Order shall be accepted unless SFI provides Purchaser with a written acknowledgment to such order. Purchaser is responsible to review each acknowledged Purchase Order to be sure that all orders details are correct. Orders will not be acknowledged or released for production by SFI until all specification information is complete, credit terms are deemed acceptable to SFI and the first payment is received by SFI. All discounts and list prices are subject to change. Prices are those at the time of the order placement.

Shipments and Deliveries

Delivery dates stated at the time of the invoice are estimated dates and shall not be deemed to represent a fixed guaranteed delivery date. SFI will make every effort to respect the estimated time of delivery for the goods sold to the Purchaser. SFI will not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages of any kind suffered by the Purchaser as the result of SFI’s Inability to meet any estimated delivery dates. Goods are sold at FOB SFI’s factory. SFI Offers a Shipping program. Under this program, delivery is organized by SFI. This shipping and handling program enables the Purchaser to state on the Purchase Order requested time for delivery and location products need to be delivered following approval of the Purchase Orders. SFI does not ship to UPS Stores, FedEx Office Ship Center, US Post Office, PO Box or other mail and shipping facilities. SFI is not in a position to process any orders to these locations.


Cancellations will not be accepted without SFI approval on any confirmed orders once they are put in process for production. If the confirmed order is unanimously canceled, the Purchaser is obliged to pay all costs incurred to date, and through the cancellation of such order, even if this has not been expressly agreed on in the special contract on the cancellation. No cancellation is accepted for special product orders that are approved and are in production or any order that is approved and is in the production phase.

Confirmed Purchased Orders are binding and CANNOT be changed three business days after confirmation has occurred. If order change has happened prior to SFI’s confirmation of an order, SFI will have to review an order and provide a new confirmation, which may require new cost, new delivery time schedule and additional payment by the Purchaser. SFI will exert every effort to meet our shipping dates but failure to do so does not justify confirmed order cancellations.

In order to start with the delivery schedule, SFI needs to receive from the Purchaser all necessary information and clarification of the shipping instructions and other necessary documents at the time Purchase order is placed for consideration. The Delivery dates are deemed to be approximated where there is no provision to the contrary and do not constitute issues of delay. The Purchaser may not assert to SFI any claims arising from contractual penalties.

Purchaser must report to the carrier, making notations on the delivery receipt and the original freight bill as to damage or shortage before accepting shipment.

These will be considered special orders and the Purchaser needs to contact SFI sales office with full information and description of the special knit type and color including the sample, production and delivery, so proper pricing and delivery time can be established for such special items.

In the absence of specific written instructions accompanying the order, fabrics will be cut, seamed and applied at our discretion and at the customer’s risk.

Special Fabric

SFI will inform the Purchaser about requirements on the length and quantity of the material needed (for fabric recommended width is 137cm). Fabrics of narrower widths and/or which involve matching repeats will require additional yardage. Under most of these circumstances, the following tables can be used as a guide.

We suggest that our customers inspect fabrics before furnishing them to SFI. Under no circumstances will SFI assume responsibility for COM/ COL shortages, flaws, or other such problems.

In case that certain specified material cannot be used in SFI manufacturing process, SFI reserves the right not to accept such special orders.

Special Finishes

Special finishes are available. Please request information on 3DKnit fabrics or our special Laminate Colors; send a sample of the finish color desired and after the sample is reviewed by SFI production team will provide adjusted cost for adjusting production for use of specific COM/COL materials. Please allow ample time for a special finish sample to be reviewed and examined by both Purchaser and SFI for final approval.

Special Laminates and Veneer

Table, Desks and office cabinets and units shown separately but ordered together will not automatically be assumed that they are going to be used together and therefore the veneer will not be matched. If separate tops are going to be used together, the purchaser must submit a drawing of the configuration and specify veneer matching desired. There will be an appropriate charge according to the configuration and type of laminate or veneer specified.

If multiple table tops, desks and office cabinets are going to be used in different configurations other than illustrated in the price list, an up-charge may be necessary for non-standard laminate and veneer direction. SFI will contact it’s factory and submit drawing for review.
