New Orders

Due to the current status of the Company, we are unable to take any further customer orders and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Any quotations which have been provided by the Company, but have not been confirmed by customer services, will not be converted to an order. Again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Existing Orders

The Joint Administrators have competed a review of the Company's financial position and the existing order book. Following this review, and in conjunction with the marketing of the Company's business and assets for sale, the decision has been made to wind-down the Company's operations.

Certain customers have received delivery of their order up to and including Wednesday 14 February 2018. This is the last day that the Company is able to deliver customer orders for financial reasons. If you have not received your order by Wednesday 14 February then the Company will not be fulfilling your order. For clarity:

  • After Wednesday 14 February no new deliveries will be made.
  • Any undelivered orders should be considered cancelled by the Company; they will not be delivered. For the avoidance of doubt, due to the Company's short manufacturing lead times if your order has not been delivered, it will not have been manufactured.

If you have paid (or part-paid) for your order, by credit or debit card (including charge and pre-paid cards) and your order will not be delivered, you may be able to get your money back by claiming a refund from your card issuer. Please contact your card issuer as soon as you can if this applies to you. Further information including time limits that apply is available from the UK Cards Association Credit and debit cards: A consumer guide.

If you have paid using PayPal, please contact PayPal directly as you may be able to claim a refund with them.

If you have paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer, please contact the Joint Administrators directly on who will provide a claim form and explain the process.

Refunds, Exchanges, Incomplete Orders, Incorrect Product Delivered, Damage During Delivery, Faulty Goods / Warranty Claims or other Customer Service matters

Please note the Company is not able to process refunds, exchanges, provide replacement parts / conduct repairs or correct any incomplete/incorrect orders. All claims of this nature or other claims listed above, including warranty claims, will rank as claims in the Administration.

As noted above, if you have paid by credit or debit card, you may be able to get your money back by claiming a refund from your card issuer (subject to the time limited on such claims). Please liaise directly with your card issuer.
