If I don't receive an invoice for service from a vendor in a timely matter do I still have to pay it?

Question Details:

I work for a construction company and our vendor who supplies side and back yard fences has not supplied my with a invoice in over 18 months. I have called 4 times asking for a invoice. No response. I want to pay this bill. He also has temp fencing out there and I have not received a bill since July of 08. Is there any consumer law that states if something is not billed within a year I do not have to pay. I need something to persuade him to give me a bill. Any suggestions and or what are my rights?
