Texas Business and Commerce Code
Sec. § 57.303
Equipment Represented As Available for Immediate Delivery

A supplier may not refuse to deliver, in reasonable quantities and within a reasonable time after receipt of a dealer’s order, to any dealer having a dealer agreement for the retail sale of new equipment sold or distributed by the supplier, equipment covered by the dealer agreement and specifically advertised or represented by the supplier as available for immediate delivery, unless the refusal is due to:


the supplier’s prudent and reasonable restrictions on extensions of credit to the dealer;


a business decision by the supplier to limit the production volume of the equipment; or


an act of nature, work stoppage or delay due to a strike or labor difficulty, a bona fide shortage of materials, freight embargo, or other cause over which the supplier has no control.
