Due to the Covid-19 emergency our factory and offices will be operating at a reduced level until further notice. We will be taking online orders but you should expect them to take longer to deliver than normal.

We will fully re-open only when the government tells us it is safe to do so.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we will be back in full force to do business with you in the future.
