What is the minimum order quantity
Every project is different and the minimum order quantity is dependent on a range of factors; how standardised is your product and whether we have stock. Will we need to purchase a new mould or equipment to produce your order. What your budget is for the order and how price sensitive the product is with increases and decreases in quantity.
We encourage our customers to order full container loads if they have a particularly low price target as this is a great way to significantly drive price down for you. However, we have also produced very small quantities of products for customers and can arrange shippment by LCL or air freight.
What if the exchange rate fluctuates after I’ve placed my order
We will agree on a price based on the current exchange rate at the time of your order. We provide you with an invoice showing the agreed exchange rate and we will stick to this no matter how the rate fluctuates before receiving your goods.
