Manufacturing out of contract – whose terms are you contracting on?

A contract for the manufacture of goods has recently expired, but what happens if to continue to receive orders? Manufacturing contracts are often entered into for a fixed period of time (often referred to as the “term” of the agreement). Whilst it helps to deal with what happens after the term of the contract, for example either automatically extending the contract into a “run-off” period, or even a provision that states the parties will review the situation, it is not always the case.
