Without a doubt, 2020 has been an unforgettable year, with Brexit, Coronavirus, lockdowns and face coverings being the buzzwords of the last 12 months.
Now, as the year draws to a close and Brexit looms large, we want to reassure our customers that we’ve taken every possible step we can to avoid problems with supply in 2021 triggered by new Brexit regulations.
Excluding the manufacturer of the glands on our line connectors, all of our manufacturers are UK based. Also, we have excellent long-term relationships with all of our suppliers and see no reason to be concerned about ongoing supply. That being said, from January 5th we will have more production staff, meaning our output will increase. More finished stock on the shelves will help to avoid potential delays at customs and eradicate the risk of lengthened lead times.
As a rule going forward, we will hold a minimum stock of 200 sets of line and panel connectors. If ever we dip below this level, we will simply make more. With these improvements in place, we are confident that our lead time won’t increase but will in fact, be reduced.
If you would like discuss Brexit and any potential issues, please do not hesitate to contact us.
From all of us at Phase 3 Connectors, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
