Corona virus delay
Quick update on the 2nd batch – I’m afraid it’s not ideal news.
We have all the parts for the second batch machines in stock (castings, injection moulded parts, boxes, instructions etc.) except two components that are made in China – the tamper and the parts for the new safety valve. The delay is due to the Corona virus outbreak that has kept our suppliers’ factories closed for weeks. The latest updates we have from them are:
- the valve parts should be with us by the first week of March.
- work in the factory that makes the tampers resumed this week, waiting for a clear ETA.
So, as things stand we’re looking at least a two week delay – that means shipping out orders in mid-March.
We’ll keep you updated as we find out more. Thank you all for your patience.
