Stock & delivery times
We are keeping a close eye on our stock levels and prudently buying in advance where we can, however, this only applies to “fast moving” items, so if you need large volumes or something more bespoke, it would be as well to start talking to us now, as lead times are being extended and stock at our suppliers is dwindling fast.
