Warranty & Discontinuation of Product
Now we have a situation here in terms of warranty and product discontinuation :
A large facility was being constructed which required ~1500 architecturally exposed fixtures of a particular style/model. A Purchase Order was drawn up with terms of Warranty of 10 years. This was in 2014.
Cut to 2019, replacement of 9 fixtures are required (5# attributable under warranty provisions + 4# misused by the Purchaser) and it is now learnt that the fixtures itself is discontinued from the product line since 2017.
It is not possible to install 9 fixtures of a different model / look as these are architecturally exposed fixtures / products.
The Supplier has politely declined to answer the conflict of giving a 10 year warranty ending 2024 and discontinuing the product in 2017.
Q1: Advise on possible ways such a situation has been contractually dealt with.
Q2: How can one estimate the damages towards default by the Supplier in committing to its obligations under the Warranty Period, since the product has been discontinued?
Thanks in Advance
