Lapp Automaatio Oy - General Terms and Conditions

Lapp Automaatio Oy adheres to the Technical Traders’ General Conditions of Sale TK Yleiset 2010 with the following modifications and/or additions.


Prices given in Lapp Automaatio’s price list are gross prices (with certain exceptions) and exclude VAT.

Pricing of cables and single cores, containing copper is based on the following definition:

On the 15th day of the month or the following working day, if this day falls on a weekend or midweek holiday, the average of the of the previous 30 days’ WM higher copper price (*WM CU HIGH EUR/100 kg) is calculated and added with a 1,7% handling fee.

The price of copper, which is calculated above, becomes valid on the 1st day of the month after next (i.e. approximately 1,5 month after the day of the calculation). The prices are adjusted monthly, in cases where the average copper price changes more than 3 % in comparison to the previous price adjustment.

Lapp Automation reserves the right to adjust prices due to exchange rate fluctuations, raw material market prices or other changes beyond Lapp Automaatio’s control.

Unless otherwise agreed, the entire shipping costs of express deliveries will be charged to the consignee.

Non-stock items are sold in whole packs only.

A surcharge of EUR 30,00 will be added to all orders which total tax-free amount is less than EUR 100,00 (excluding service fees).

Starting from October 1st 2022 a service fee will be charged from deliveries that include handling, measuring, cutting and spooning of cables and conductors to custom lengths. Service fee will not be charged if the default factory length(s) is ordered.
