One of the international lawyers in my law firm recently entered into a standard agreement for DenWerkzeug [Mold] Ownership Agreement for one of our clients who manufactures his products in factories in several countries. This tool exchange agreement is essentially a model for this unique client, and it still needs to be specifically implemented for the different tools of this unique client or for the different countries where its tools are sent. This customer is diversifying its suppliers. The next one is an email that we sent to this client, heavily modified to hide all identifiers, and reduced to simplify. Please note that our goal with this email was to give the customer a standard framework that can be used when discussing the ownership of the tool with its various factories. This email is not designed to include anything that should be paid into a tool ownership contract. I do them here to give an idea of what goes into the most fundamental and common international ownership agreement for the tool. This document is not suitable for a particular relationship or even a particular country. This document covers the issue of ownership only after all taxes have been paid. It does not cover the issue of design or the question of the structure of payments. It is intended to provide you and your employees with a framework for initial discussions with your existing and potential plants. In addition to this tooling agreement, we have also made available to our customers a form of inventory description tooling to track all the tools provided.
Please find a form version of the tool exchange agreement for your use. You can use it in the future with all your existing and potential plants, although we have to change it slightly depending on the country, and of course we will have to change it according to the agreement you make with each of your plants. This agreement aims to cover all possibilities that concern the source of the tools: manufacturing, manufacturing by a third party or the tools you provide. The design and content of the tool is considered confidential information. CONTRACTOR must not disclose this confidential information to third parties. If the tooling is manufactured or designed by a third party, CONTRACTOR ensures that that third party treats the design and other information provided as confidential information and that the third party protects the confidential information under the same conditions as the CONTRACTOR. If the third party violates these provisions, the CONTRACTOR is liable for all the resulting damages. CONTRACTOR shall not use the tools or confidential information for any purpose other than the manufacture of products for any use of the tools for the manufacture of products by the CONTRACTOR or for the sale of products to third parties other than – constitutes a violation of this agreement. – has at any time and for any reason the right to request the provision of an arbitrary tool for – After receiving the notification, CONTRACTOR makes these tooling parts available only for collection in the premises where the tooling is located within ten (10) working days.
