Lead Times

To fulfill larger quantities than would be considered normal for a stock product may need to be manufactured especially from scratch. This can significantly increase the lead times.

Lead times can also be further increased by increasing quantities and by each additional manufacturing process, such as galvanising, powder coating etc.

Lead times can increase if stock levels are depleted by an unusual number of orders for a given product.

We will always endeavor to update you with any revision to the estimated lead times.

Time is also not of the essence with regard to these delivery dates. If no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the invoice/confirmation email, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
