What is Europe’s Summer Hiatus and how might it affect you?
15/07/2015Over the summer months, a number of our overseas suppliers cease manufacturing for a specific length of time. This practice is commonplace in Europe and all staff members take their annual leave during this period. As a result, the companies’ lead times will be longer than usual, and we ask that you read the following schedule to see how the Summer Hiatus affects you and the product(s) you wish to purchase.
Please note that the list below, although extensive, only shows the companies that manufacture items for sale on our website. If you have an existing order, or are looking to place one over the coming months, please ask your sales consultant or visit one of our showrooms for further details on other specialist products.
