The new season’s approaching with the speed of light. 2020 is right around the corner. It’s time to get your production planning on track…
The Order Books are Filling Up
Yes, they really are. I know that spring has barely sprung, but our suppliers are already getting production schedules booked up.
We’re working hard with many of our loyal clients to get their projects designed, approved and finalised.
This way our suppliers can be sure to have their supplies in place to avoid undue delay.
Short term projects can often be squeezed in here and there, but a larger scale project can take more than 3 months.
Keep it Realistic
Our policy is to Make Realistic Promises and deliver on time.
There is a time frame for every project, so why not be realistic and plan to get the equipment you really need rather than improvise with second best?
One company who ordered a specific machine in December one year, lost the benefit of immediate ROI in the first season as the 16 week delivery time meant the equipment didn’t arrive in NZ until 2 weeks before the end of the season.
Take a minute to figure out how much ROI you would lose if you left your significant project past the critical order date and share this with your decision-makers.
