Products & Services for North Carolina Contractors

Private Contractor Purchase Information

Effective September 1st, 2013 Correction Enterprises was granted legislative approval to sell products to private contractors, when the goods purchased will be used to perform work under a contract with a public agency. We are excited to be able to offer this benefit to private contractors.

Private contractors with questions on how and what they may buy can direct their questions to the Customer Service or Sales departments at 1-800-241-0124.

Getting Started

Before a quote can be given, all private contractors must fill out the following credit application and the use affirmation forms. These forms must be submitted to Customer Service.


  • Products purchased from Correction Enterprises are restricted for use on public projects. Contractors are required to sign the Contractor Product Use Certification form prior to all purchases.
  • Failure to use product on a public agency project will result in forfeiture of ability to purchase from Correction Enterprises.
  • A $25.00 NSF Fee will be applied for all return checks.
  • Correction Enterprises has the right to refuse any order for any reason.
  • All sales are subject to applicable North Carolina Sales Tax laws.
  • Delivery - All delivery is FOB Shipment. The delivery shall be made at the project site or contractors' place of business. The risk of loss shall pass to the private contractor upon delivery of the goods should the private contractor not be present to accept delivery.
  • Inspection - The private contractor has the right to inspect the goods upon arrival. The private contractor's inspection rights shall expire within 24 hours after the arrival of the goods at the delivery destination. A failure to make inspection within that time shall waive notice of any defect which reasonable inspection would have revealed.
  • Materials Returned - Unless due to Correction Enterprises' error, no materials are to be returned or credit allowed without Correction Enterprises' authorization. Authorized returns of stock, non-stock items in good condition are credited at invoice price less than 20% to cover handling and restocking expenses. Special ordered, custom merchandise may not be returned.
  • Warranty - The standard warranty and cancellation policy for all Correction Enterprises products applies to products purchased by private contractors. The product warranty shall apply to the private contractor, not the end user.
